CAFE CHIC

 

 Recently I was invited to a fabulous evening of fine dining and wine pairing  at Cafe Chic in Cape Town.  The meal consisted of a 7 course canape dinner paired with different wines.

OYSTER,PEAR,RADISH,CUCUMBER,SOY,CORIANDER paired with GRAHAM BECK BRUT ROSE

I am a huge fan of oysters,  I usually have it with Tabasco, but this was delicious, I didn’t need anything extra  thanks to the radish, what a great combination and it went so well with the Graham Beck.
 
PEA, CAPPUCINO,CAPE LOBSTER,SWEET PIMENTO paired with CREATION SAUVIGNON BLANC
 
What can I say I really loved this combination together and the sauvignon blanc brought out the cape lobster taste perfectly.
 
KINGLIP,BETROOT,SWEETCORN,PARMESAN GNOCCHI   paired with WARICK ESTATE WHIE LADY
 
Huge fan of kingklip and it goes surprisingly well with beetroot and the Warick  Estate White Lady whuch brings out all the flavours.
 
BRAISED DUCK PUY LENTILS BUTTERNIT FRIED QUAILS EGGS  paired with HAMILTON RUSSEL VINEYARDS PINOT NOIR
 
I admit I did not eat the duck because I dont eat duck after having had 2 as pets when I was younger, but according to everyone it was amazing! One of my favourite wines is Hamilton Russel Vineyards especially their Pinot Noir, which went well with the quail eggs and butternut.
 
BEEF FILLET  CREAMED WATERCRESS MUSHROOM RAVIOLI  TRUFFLE HOLLANDAISE  paired with KLEIN CONSTANTIA MARBROOK

This beef fillet was  so good, very tender and the truffle hollandaise   and everything else went so well together.
 
CASHEL BLUE CHEESE FIG MARMALADE HOT TOAST paired with ALLESVERLOREN PORT
 
This combination is the best way to end a meal, the blue cheese, the port and  the fig marmalade is by far one of my favourites.
 
BITTER CHOCOLATE PARFAIT MANGO SORBET CANDIED ALMONDS paired with KLEIN CONSTANTIA VIN DE CONSTANCE
The chocolate, sorbet and almonds are a unique combination and textures that compliment the the Klein Constantia Vin De Constance
