In fact, like Dragon Tree, it loves spices and even chillies. It is gorgeous with: slow-cooked duck drizzled with a pomegranate and cardamom gravy and served with potatoes roasted in duck dripping as well as a green salad of bitter leaves.

In 1509 this wind-sculptured Milkwood witnessed the massacre by local Khoi San of 64 of d’Almeidas infamous, battle-hardened Portuguese marines, who had foolishly abducted a Khoi San baby and attempted to take the infant back to their ships waiting in Table Bay.
