It's Winter in Cape Town

Welcome to the International Women's Club of Cape Town
Some people say that Capetonians hibernate during the winter months. If the IWC members are anything to go by, its actually quite the opposite! Many of our members of stretched their swallow wings and are still in their other nests around the world. However, there is a large contingency of ladies who are out there enjoying everything the club has sent their way.
Our wine-tasting enthusiastis had a glorious event at Eikendal Vineyard; the Friday lunch club settled into another wine estate, Groot Constantia, and enjoyed their lunch at the Jonkershuis restaurant; the Sunday Lunch club chose a cosy Italian venue A Tavola for their July get together; there was more food on the menu for the July “Outing” with a demo followed by enthusiastic eating at The Sweetest Thing in Simonstown; the hiking group was blessed with a day of sunshine to enjoy the spectacular views from Chapman’s Peak; and the merry-making continued with our One-Dish and Soup & Sweet Clubs.
It would appear we like our food and drink in this part of the world! For a look at some of those events and those who attended, scroll down in our gallery frame to the right of this Home Page.

A quick view of what we've been up to.


We thought it would be rather nice to mark the occasion of our 40th anniversary with something we can all keep. Ruby is quite a milestone! We would like to ask you all to come up with a recipe that somehow represents your own country. It can be starter, main dish, dessert or even just a favourite snack. We are going to compile a little cookbook at the end of the year so we all have something that will serve as a marker for this auspicious anniversary.

Please would you send your recipes to or hand it to any member of the board during a general meeting or at one of the activities. Remember to include your name, the name of your recipe and your country.

Look forward to seeing what you can “cook up” for us!!

We are now in the middle of winter and I am enjoying wearing warm clothes and sitting in front of a fire after being away in humidity and heat for 5 weeks.  As much as I love to travel getting back to Cape Town is always wonderful. We are very privileged to be able to live here and even more so to be part of our amazing club and thus have friends to share it with.
