A space designed to cook, create and collaborate with food.

The Kitchen Collective is made up of a collection of very different food studios based in and around Cape Town.

The Kitchen Collective Food Studios (City Bowl) has three professional fully equipped kitchen studios in one venue. Ginger & Lime (Fresnaye) is based in an elegant manor house with a beautiful terrace for outdoor events and Salt & Sage (Bantry Bay) is a sleek, sexy, state of the art open plan space with stunning sea views.

These are all perfect places to host various events; Interactive Cooking Experiences, Corporate Teambuilding, MasterChef Parties, Private Functions, Product Launches, Cape Malay Cooking Experiences for our international guests and much more. The unique aspect of The Kitchen Collective space is that as well as the main open plan Demo “Theatre” Kitchen, there are 2 glass enclosed kitchen studios for hire by industry professionals for catering, private chefs, cooking workshops, film crews, food stylists and photographers for shoots, as well as anyone that needs a kitchen space to prep for any occasion.

At The Kitchen Collective, we pride ourselves on making each and every event a unique, bespoke experience collaborating closely with our clients vision to make it happen. We are absolutely passionate about what we do.

    "A truly spectacular evening"

    This was a truly spectacular evening and a wonderful way to meet new people! I think would be equally fun venturing out on your own or with a great group of friends.

  • Kathryn Rossiter, “Becoming You”

    "Good wine, good food, good people"

    This was such a fun way to spend an evening with a friend – preparing good food, tasting good wine, meeting good people! Definitely, a wonderful way to spend a wet winter’s evening!
