Do you know what I miss? I miss Sunday Lunch with the whole family around my granny’s dining room table. It was noisy , messy and delicious. We ate wholesome, hearty meals prepared with love and spent hours eating, debating life, teasing, sharing and laughing. It is sad now that this family tradition happens less often due to families living so far apart and the busy pace of modern life.
Now we can’t really solve the problem of family proximity but I can offer a delicious solution to get you some food like Ouma used to make! Right here in Paternoster 🙂 And while you might not have a noisy family around the table you can watch the comings and goings of this always interesting little village from the stoep.
Local sisters, Vanessa Abrahams and Carmen Jordaan have opened a wonderful little eatery at Stone Fish Studio called Ouma se Kombuis. Here you can get the hearty, homemade Weskus Kos that you have been craving.
It is a matter of pride that the local women of Paternoster cook their traditional recipes for Ouma se Kombuis with fresh, local ingredients and a generous pinch of love. There is a homespun cosy style in the friendly welcome, colourful decor right through to the sweet koeksister koebaai. Meals range from simple toasted sarmies and sweet baked treats to traditional Oxtail, Tamatiebredie, Groenboontjiebredie, Pêrevoetpie, Smoorsnoek and Afval specialities.
