In a country as diverse as South Africa, we should be celebrating the unique ingredients and flavours that tell the stories of our people and our places.
From biltong and droëwors, braai and shisanyama, to Cape Malay cooking, koeksisters, chakalaka, pap, and bunny chow.
With this in mind, chef Jerry Kennedy and his team at Nederburg’s The Manor restaurant have recently introduced a fun series of eight-course dinners aimed at discovering and showcasing the distinctiveness and versatility of some of the South Africa’s diverse local ingredients.
The Manor’s Journey of SA Flavours dinner series takes place on the last Saturday of each month, up until 31 July.
The Manor’s Journey of SA Flavours dinner series dates and flavour themes:
- 24 April: Maize
- 29 May: Cape Malay spices
- 26 June: Venison
- 31 July: Foraged ingredients such as waterblommetjies, wild mushrooms and suuring
Time: The Saturday-night dinners start promptly at 19:00. Guests are advised to arrive no later than 18:30 to enjoy a welcome drink while watching the sun set over the majestic Drakenstein Mountains.
Cost: R850 per couple (or R450 per person), including a 750ml bottle of your choice of Nederburg’s core range of wines to enjoy with your meal.
