Denise Cowburn-Levy’s Cape West Coast mixed shellfish rice

Maybe we’re biased, but we truly feel there’s no better place to be right now than Cape Town. There’s that salty summer scent in the air, endless casual street food style eateries, and hole-in-the-wall hatches serving deep fried fish and chips freshly caught in the flourishing oceans.

A mere 25 minutes north of the Mother City you’ll find a compact world of unspoiled beauty, quaint fishing villages, and rich cultural history. The Cape West Coast is where Denise Cowburn-Levy (author of the newly-released cookbook Around My Table and co-owner of The Kitchen Collective) was inspired to create her West Coast mixed shellfish rice recipe, and the recipe makes a meal as spectacular as the place it captures.
