Meet your host, Florence

Host on Airbnb since 2020
  • Identity verified
Hi, I'm Florence! I am a co-owner of the popular Pahari African Restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa. I learnt how to cook from my mother at an early age and the African cuisine recipes have been passed down our family from generation to generation. My husband and I have been in the food service industry for two decades. Throughout these years we have enjoyed sharing our culture with foreigners as well as hearing about their cultures, especially what they like to eat. We have a deep love for food, people and culture.

Where you'll be

The experience is hosted at Pahari African Restaurant, our African cuisine family restaurant based in Salt River, Cape Town. Pahari in the Shona language means “a place of pots“. In our African culture pots are made out of clay and are designed to create the best flavours on the natural fire. We grew up eating various types of our African cuisine from the African pot.
