Cooked is based in Cape Town so most of the trips have left from there, but it is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Southern Africa so we can’t ignore what is right on our doorstep. In this episode, Justin and friends are hosted by Liziwe at her guest house in Gugulethu, or Gugs, as it is affectionately known. After a history lesson about apartheid and why we have townships in the first place, Liziwe offers her home brewed umquobhoti (traditional xhosa beer). Etiquette demands she try it first, but Justin is not convinced this isn’t just a ploy to have her fair share. The gracious hostess makes liver and onions, followed by a massive potjie of lamb knuckles. No visit to Gugs would be complete without sampling a “smiley” (sheep’s head) and a visit to Mzoli’s for true township vibe.
