The Red Table to Delight with Bright Summer Flavours during Restaurant Week

Nederburg’s The Red Table restaurant, situated in its historic manor house dating from 1800, is once again participating in South Africa’s Restaurant Week, from 19 October to 5 November 2017.

Expect pure country hospitality, matched with full-blown flavour!

Enjoy a refreshing welcome drink on arrival, while you take in the beautiful surroundings alluding to the stories of those who have laboured to establish Nederburg as one of South Africa’s most loved, award-winning wineries. Scan the landscape, relish the wide, open skies and enjoy the majestic mountain views.

Then settle down for a lazy lunch featuring a main course of smoked snoek fisherman’s tart, served with a fresh summer salad, and accompanied by a complimentary glass of Nederburg’s expressive, exuberant and delicious The Anchorman Chenin Blanc 2016 from the Heritage Heroes collection. This wine is a stunner, featuring impressive awards such as best South African Chenin blanc at the 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards, and listed as a 2017 Standard Bank Top 10 Chenin Blanc Challenge winning wine. It is named to commemorate Philippus Wolvaart, who founded Nederburg in 1791. Read more The Red Table to Delight with Bright Summer Flavours during Restaurant Week

Within Cape Town’s crowded and critically demanding restaurant scene, Dash at the Queen Victoria Hotel in the Waterfront, is currently rated as one of the best in the city. Dash is now excited to announce the appointment of Stellenbosch born and bred Germaine Esau as its new Executive Chef. Arguably one of the most innovative chefs in the country, Germaine is described as a visionary genius and someone who can create combinations and masterpieces that other chefs would not attempt. “I come from a family of brilliant cooks and have always loved cooking. As a young boy I used to help my father create new dishes in the kitchen and this is probably where my passion for cooking was sparked, “says Germaine.

Germaine, who initially studied Geology, decided to enter the Chefs Secret competition in 2008 during his final exams and, to his surprise, he won. The prize was a fully paid bursary to study at ICA for 2 years. “I enjoy competitions”, explains Germaine, “because they challenge my culinary ability, creativity, and basic cooking techniques.” Read more Dash Restaurant has a new Chef
