On Wednesday, 30 September 2015, not on the usual last Thursday due to Heritage Day, The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel welcomes Stony Brook Vineyards for another instalment of the Hotel’s popular monthly Wine & Dine Evenings.
Executive Chef, Hajierah Hamit, has planned a five-star gourmet set menu, each course specially prepared & paired with a complementing Stony Brook wine. An ambassador from the respected Vineyard will join on the evening to educate guests on the art of winemaking, the qualities and attributes of each wine, as well as the reasons for each food pairing.
To compliment the craft and dedication which has made Stony Brook Vineyards a triumph, Chef Hajierah’s menu will start with Sugared Parma Ham and Melon Salad with a Mint Dressing. For an intermediate dish, guests can look forward to Smoked Duck with an Asian Coleslaw and Teriyaki Reduction.
To ensure guest enjoy the full flavour profile of the wines on offer, a palate cleanser of Lemon and Mint Sorbet will be served before moving on to the Main Course.
For the Main Course, the Chef has prepared Char Grilled Beef Fillet with Lemon Butter-infused Crayfish.
To end off the evening, guests will be treated to a Mad Hatters dessert prepared to offset the vibrant and full flavours of the Stony Brook offering.
“I have chosen very specific, fresh, inventive dishes to complement the distinct aromas, blends and flavours of the wines on offer. We are very excited to bring Stony Brook Vineyard to our guests this month,” says Chef Hajierah.
Stony Brook Vineyards is a boutique family-run wine farm in the beautiful Franschhoek valley. Owners, Nigel and Joy McNaught, founded Stony Brook to satisfy their love of quality wine and to produce wines that reflect the unique micro climate of this southern-most corner of Franschhoek.
The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel’s Wine & Dine evenings usually take place on the last Thursday of every month and are enjoyed as much for their exceptional cuisine and wines as for The Peninsula’s stunning location along Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard and the hotel’s enduring reputation for true Cape hospitality.
The Wine & Dine evening will commence at 7:30 for 8:00pm. To make a booking at R225 per person (including wine), call the Peninsula All-Suite Hotel on 021 430 777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
