Sophia Lindop


I am Sophia Lindop – farm girl by birth, city girl by marriage. The only constant in my life has always been good, wholesome food, wine and company.

I recently published my sixth cookbook – GOING HOME is a personal journey back home to Lebanon that takes the reader along on my pilgrimage to find my clan and shares recipes of all the deliciousness we encountered along the way.

Learn to cook Lebanese with me. Hands-on interactive cookery classes are hosted from the comfort of my home kitchen in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. Saturday mornings start with a snack and a cup of coffee before we get busy preparing our lunch together. I also teach in other venues around the country, especially in Johannesburg. You can also buy a cookery class gift voucher.

Join me on a Food Tour to Lebanon. The sights and sounds of Lebanon – the baker with his ka’ak hanging on a rod, ringing his bicycle bell to announce lunch on the bustling corniche; the clanging of the coffee cups inviting everyone to enjoy a quick shot of ahwe (coffee) at the mobile coffee bar outside the souk…

I’m social too. Connect with me on Instagram and Facebook.
