Veggie Vin-atics!

If you feel like seeing more gorgeous vegetarian dishes, go to our vegetarian page with hundreds of lovely recipes.


Hello wine-lovers,

And welcome to Vegi-natics!! Yes, that’s right, we are meat-free this month at Vin-atics as we try to see if pairing wines with veggie food is any different from meaty matches.

And the answer?

Is absolutely not! We had a fantastic menu of delicious, fresh, tasty everyday dishes which would appeal to the whole family but which just happen not to have any meat or fish used in their preparation. I was astounded how tasty this food was and how absolutely-not-at-all I missed the meat.

And I wasn’t alone – check out the report of our dinner to see the comments made by some of our lovely guests. I think veggie food crept up on them and took them all by surprise as well! Everyone of the wines found a supporter amongst our guests with one dish or another – this is actually more unusual than you might think as up until now, I think there has always been one wine which has proved a bit of a food-matching dud!

And now it’s your turn!

So great food, great wines, fabulous matches and a healthy night for you and your friends – what more could you want? And you could win yourself a R500 voucher from Cybercellar as well – look at Sue and the totally hilarious time she had last month going Zef! All you need to do is:

- Pick a couple of the dishes

- Pick a couple of the wines

- Pick a couple of your friends to come round for supper

- Pick up the camera and take pictures and make notes

- Pick the funniest, tastiest, most enjoyable bits of the evening and write about them

Send it to us and win!

So that’s it really. Email your entries or your link to before the end of the month so we can choose the winner. C’mon all you veggie-folk out there – you know your food is AWESOME, so strike a blow for ‘meat-freedom-forever’ and show the rest of the world!

Happy peeling!
