“Always walk through life as if you have something to learn, and you will.”

~ Vernon Howard
Hi! I’m Sophia Lindop and I’m really glad you’re here.

The love of food has shaped my life.

With a Lebanese family on my father’s side, I grew up on a farm in the Northern Cape. Food always drew the family together and cooking for people became my love language early in life. Connect with me for our Weekly Catch-up
I’d love to have you on this journey with me to the places and people who have captivated my heart, inspired my tastebuds, and stimulated my creativity. Let’s keep learning together.

Cookery Classes

Spend an easy, carefree morning cooking with me. Whatever your skill level, we’ll explore and learn together in courses designed to suit you, followed by a leisurely lunch paired with exceptional wines. Trundle home with your recipes and a little gift from my pantry.

Online Cookery Course

Have you had a serious dose of FOMO and wondered how you could ever attend one of my Cape Town cookery classes when you live so far away? Ta-da! Now you can invite me into your kitchen and we can go on a culinary journey to Lebanon together! Eleven easy-to-follow videos teaching you how to prepare eleven authentic Lebanese dishes, with a downloadable eBook with recipes, notes and tips.

Sophia’s Cookbooks

I’m a storyteller at heart, so my cookbooks are more than just page after page of recipes. They are a journey, in words and pictures, through the food and places and people that I love. I tell stories of the food I love – simple, wholesome and nostalgic, yet contemporary – in my collection of eight cookbooks, and there are more on the way.

Kitchen Essentials

Because I spend so much time in the kitchen, I’m mad about functional kitchen accessories but it’s often difficult to find beautiful stuff that actually works. Practical as ever, I went to source and put together a collection to share with you. My range ships anywhere in South Africa. Visit my online shop.
