Fusion : Europeanwith a blend of Cape Malay. Cape Malay cooking has had a considerable influence onSouth African culinary traditions and its virtues have been extolled by such writers andepicures as Laurens van der Post and Louis Leipoldt. Although it is predominantly Indianin origin, Malay cooking has been largely influenced by Indian cuisine, hence thecurries, rotis and samoosas. The name Cape Malay is perhaps something of a misnomeras it refers to followers of the Islamic faith, whose forefathers were brought to theCape as slaves from the Indonesian island of Java, over 300 years ago. They were notassociated with Malaysia in any way, except that they spoke Malay, a kind of universallanguage in that part of the world. From its very beginning, South Africa has been aMelting Pot where east meets west.
