If the recent cold spell has put you in the mood for autumn food with an international flair, you're in luck. Cooks of Crocus Hill will be hosting a South African wine pairing dinner and demonstration class this Friday from 6 to 9 p.m.
Here are the details:
The evening's chef is Roy Goslin of Z Wines USA. A South African himself, Goslin has been working with South Africa's wine industry since he was a child, and he has over four decades of cooking experience, including three years running a Cape Town restaurant.
On the menu is a Cape Malay-influenced pickled fish with couscous salad, pasta in red wine with seared calamari, herb-crusted chicken tenderloin, potato and yam gratin, roasted vegetables, and malva pudding--a sweet and spongy apricot pudding with Dutch origins--served with KWV Van der Hum cream liqueur (also known as the original Cape Dutch cream liqueur). They will be accompanied by a fine selection of South African harvest wines.
The dinner takes place on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. and will cost you $75. Sign up on the Cooks of Crocus Hill website
