De Tafel van de Chef a great success!

Our first De Tafel van de Chef was a great success! A group of patrons and friends gathered to pair Iona Wines with Chef Jana’s creations designed specifically for each wine. What an atmosphere! As one of the guests wrote on Tripdavisor “From very generous portions to good conversation, it was an evening, we hope will be repeated by this new team that heads up the floor & kitchen of Dutchies..” The menu consisted of Amuse Warm Cucumber Soup paired with the Iona Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Rose Goatcheese with beetroot salsa paired with Iona’s Sauvignon Blanc Salmon Trout paired with the Iona Chardonnay Lamb with the One Man Band red and then topped off with Chocolate Marquise for dessert with grappa Verrukkelijk…to say the least!!!...

You’re going to eat this up!

You’re going to eat this up! There’s no question about it. The dishes coming out of the Big Green Egg are going to delight your taste buds! Chef Mark, who has recently joined us from New York, is Master of the Big Green Egg! The roast lamb he prepared for Sunday lunch was a melt-in-your-mouth marvel. He’ll be cooking up a storm in the Big Green Egg on Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as for Saturday and Sunday lunch. If you haven’t tasted dishes prepared in the Big Green Egg you’re missing out. The Rocket Scientists The Big Green Egg is a ridiculously versatile cooker inspired by an ancient clay cooking device known as a “kamado” that results in food simply tasting better. You can grill, roast, flame-grill and even bake in it. We can’t wait to taste what Mark creates in it next! De Tafel van der Chef is on Wednesday 3rd June. First up is Iona Vineyards. We’ll be joined by one of their winemakers to eat, taste, compare and enjoy their wines with dishes designed by Chef Jana to match the wine. It is ESSENTIAL to book so we know how many to cater for. Space is also limited to ensure the evening is intimate. Looking forward to seeing you out and about this winter – there is no excuse for cabin fever – just head to Dutchies!  ...

On Wednesday the 3rd of June one of the winemakers from Iona vineyards will join us to eat, taste, compare and enjoy their wines with a dish designed by Chef Jana to match the wine. Iona is the coolest vineyard in the Cape, 420m above sea-level, high on the Perdeberg mountains above the picturesque Elgin Valley. They make Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and a divine red blend called ‘One Man Band’. This will be an evening filled not only with exciting tastes but also good conversation, the company of friends and (knowing our patrons) lots of laughter. It is ESSENTIAL to book before Monday 25th May so we know how many to cater for. Space is also limited to ensure the evening is...
