Progressive wine calls for food to match, and six local chefs have been invited to showcase their own forward-thinking food. The chefs are also providing a glimpse into the breadth and future of culinary trends: everything is on offer: from a vegan dish of entirely foraged ingredients by Chris Erasmus to a whole wild hog, roasted Argentine-style over an open-fire. Wesley Randles has a street-food-style seafood dish up his sleeve, while Dave Schneider is sure to bring heritage produce from Franschhoek for his vegetarian dish. For a taste of Southern barbeque meander over to Callie Louw, and patrons with a sweet tooth will be catered for by chefs André Hill and Henry Vigar, who have planned a range of innovative, bite-size desserts. The chefs will be on hand to dispense food to attendees in a leisurely, informal fine-dining feast of small plates throughout the day.
The event is a true homage to all the producers and people who call the Cape home. It’s a food festival in the truest sense of the word: sure to be full of hedonistic and epicurean pleasures.
