Welcome to July’s Vinatics with some
fabulous and affordable wines from KWV.
This South African institution is having an unprecedented run of success at the
moment with the top range, The
Mentors, winning a host of medals both locally and overseas. The focus
on quality has filtered down through the ranges and now, what was formally known
as the Lifestyle range is being revamped and re-launched as the Classic
Collection. Read more about it here.
We’ve been having a wonderful run of truly lovely people to dinner over the
past few months and feel sure this coming month will be no exception! Joining
us at Chef Caro’s this month will be some great food and wine bloggers,
tweeters, marketers, chefs and then, of course, the usual motley crew from
Food24! Hopefully everything will be slightly less surreally-Star Wars than
last month’s triumph, but you never know! Follow us all on Twitter on the
evening of Wednesday 13th July to see how we get on.
Caro is on a gourmet strike and refuses to do anything other than lovely,
tummy-warming comfort food at the moment – fine by me! Just reading the six
dishes she’s come up with is giving me an inner glow! Here’s our menu for the
month and click
here to see why Caro thinks these pairing will work.
fillets with Hollandaise sauce
chops with salsa verde
cheese balls rolled in crushed nuts
chowder with smoked paprika butter
bacon and tomato pasta
chocolate and black cherry pancakes
