Prince Albert

Prince Albert is a culinary enigma, situated on the edge of the vast and dry Great Karoo, it enjoys an abundance of clean mountain water and fertile soil. The area has been farmed since the 1700s and continues in that tradition of growing an assortment of deciduous and citrus fruit. Apricots, peaches, quinces and figs are ideally suited for the climate and an abundance of vegetable varieties.

Obviously the legendary Karoo lamb is much sought after with its distinctive flavour derived from the herbal Karoo vegetation grazing. Venison is very popular and particularly Kudu, Springbok and Gemsbok (Oryx) are abundant. Internationally acclaimed cheese is produced in the town at Gay’s Guernsey Dairy and wines are produced at Bergwater Vineyards in the verdant Prince Albert Valley. Prince Albert has become an extremely popular tourist venue, enjoyed for its historical charm and unspoilt beauty.

The town is now attracting a growing number of culinary travellers from far and wide who come to enjoy traditional, seasonal and most importantly local cuisine. The culinary culture of South Africa, and the Karoo in particular is rich and intriguing.
