Cabbage Is The Hero Of This Carb, Gluten and Plastic-Free Catering Company
No plate or cutlery needed to eat a McKay Cabbage Bowl
Who needs a bowl (especially a non-recyclable, takeaway one) when you can load a cabbage leaf with a colourful mix of raw and cooked vegetables, top it with meat or fish – or vegan options – and eat the whole thing?
That’s how McKay Cabbage Bowls are served, and are the result of a no-carb challenge by founders, Kay-Anne Soho and Michiel De Vogeleer, and a successful tasting event. Having replaced taco shells with cabbage leaves, the couple decided to try their cabbage bowls on 25 of their friends.
The bowls were such a hit, they were encouraged to turn their idea into a catering business, bringing together a shared passion for food, cooking and wellbeing.
WHAT’S IN THE BOWLS?
There are currently nine bowls on the menu. All bowls are priced between R70 and R85 and include a homemade sauce and chilli, if you like it hot. The vegan and the chicken bowls are two of the originals and are firm favourites.
There are also the halloumi bowl, breakfast bowl, salad bowl, beef, hake, boerewors, and biltong bowls. Mini cabbages are used to make mini bowls which are great for kids and for snacking and go for R35 each. You can eat the bowl without a plate or any cutlery, by wrapping up the cabbage leaf, but they do come with the option of biodegradable cutlery and packaging.

McKay Cabbage Bowls will deliver a minimum order of 15 fully-prepared bowls to your doorstep across the greater Cape Town area, including Stellenbosch. They are also fully equipped to come to your event and make the bowls on the spot. Just contact them with your address, number of attendees, and the type and number of bowls you want.
