Always save the best for last! As 2021 draws to a close, we welcome our final chef school to the Hoekkraaltjie Farm2Fork Exchange, Eat Out Food School. Tarryn Corlette and her amazing team of students join us for a fun filled day out on the West Coast.
As this was their last event before graduation, the team at Hoekkraaltjie really made sure this was one to remember!
