Amazing! Being South African myself, I can attest to the authenticity. Lucinda’s passion for cooking and entertaining is evident through every detail.

I came to Lucinda’s dinner not knowing what to expect coupled with unfamiliarity with South African food, I must say it is AMAZING and done with such high class taste ! Every ingredients used and its recipes Lucinda created are well thought through with attention to details and all blend in together creating A-class South African dish. From her homemade butter and condiments to fresh baked rolls to her hand-crafted cocktails are unforgettable! Bravo to Lucinda and her high class talent and craftsmanship ! Definitely coming back again!

Lucinda is the ultimate hostess! Her space is warm and inviting and her South African food is amazing - everything from the homemade bread to the last bite of dessert. My friends and I had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend it!

This was my second (but definitely not the last) EatWith with Lucinda. Afternoon tea ala South Africa was absolutely delicious! She made everything from scratch -even the rolls. Along with food and interesting guests, she talks about the origins of ingredients. I wholeheartedly recommend you try a tea, lunch, and/or South African dinner at Lucinda’s. You will not be disappointed
