Bree Street is the gourmet strip in Cape Town, with restaurants, canteens, and pubs lined up one after the other. Among all the options, the bright yellow facade of the Culture Club Cheese, one of the latest arrivals, should tempt you. Here you will be served South African cheeses of all kinds.
Luke Williams followed microbiology courses in cheese making at the Nottingham School of Artisan Food before becoming a cheese refiner at the famous La Fromagerie in London.
Today he presents the work of more than 40 local artisan cheese-makers and composes, with his partner, cheese platters accompanied by beer or wine. France had better watch out raclette evenings are even organised! Not a cheese fan? Try the neighbouring address, Bacon on Bree, which specialises in that excellent cured meat.
