Supper Success!

On a wild, wet and windy night all was busy in our pop up kitchen. The table was laid and our guests gathered for our very first
Cape Kitchen Supper!

Well what a success, you need only look at the smiling faces of the lovely people who graced the table. The delightful Lynda Mellor contributed greatly to the success by being her warm, welcoming and knowledgeable self. In her very capable hands we were kept interested and charmed by her knowledge of the wines for the evening, leaving us to take care of the food.

On arrival we served Moreson Solitaire Sparkling alongside biltong pate. This gave everyone a chance to introduce themselves and get settled. We served spicy butternut soup which was complemented by Kanu KCB Chenin. There was just the right amount of oakiness in this to pair beautifully with the soup.
