Out And About: Friday 15 May 2015

Where I have been Out And About: Friday 15 May 2015

I bought Dave an espresso machine and his own coffee grinder and we have been out and about buying beans from The Coffee Roasting Co. They are situated at Lourensford Estate and if you are looking for great coffee, this is the place to go.

My parents came to visit and we went to Winters Drift for a wine tasting. This wine tasting station can be found on the way out of Grabouw heading towards Villiersdorp In Glen Elgin. This is well worth the stop, and they have a small eatery as well.

René Taylor from De Kock Communications extended an invitation on behalf of The Red Table Restaurant at Nederburg to Dave and I to enjoy Mother’s Day lunch. They offer al fresco dining outside the manor house which was built in 1800. The menu is reasonably priced and all main courses have a wine pairing suggestion. To make this easy, wines are available by the glass (150mls) and by the bottle. We chose a Nederburg Winemasters Reserve Merlot 2013 (R90) which had a hint of strawberries and a lot of black currant on the palate. There was a set menu for the day at R250 and I was given the small bottle of rosé to take home with me. While we were reading through the wine list, pita bread with cream cheese was placed on the table. The meal begun with an amuse bouche of chicken wings with tzatziki and quickly moved on to the starter of deep fried Camembert. Dave had the oven baked yellow tail for his main course, and I chose the biltong crusted fillet which was served with the most amazing red wine jus. Dessert was a frosted Nederburg noble late harvest white chocolate drink and a delicious caramel fondant.

  11. Oh, yes to locally roasted coffee – we are lucky here in Hawke’s Bay to have a number of very good roasters.
