If you appreciate savouring your food one mouthful at a time while truly appreciating every taste nuance that crosses your tongue, then attendance at one of the recently launched Dégustation Dinners at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is mandatory. Starting on the 5 May 2017, the hotel will be holding these culinary events, on the first Friday of every month, in the award-winning Azure restaurant.
Since ‘Dégustation is the careful appreciation of various foods focussing on the gustatory system, the senses, high culinary art and good company’. Executive Chef Christo Pretorius’s menu will incorporate a variety of sampling portions, to tantalise the five taste modalities, as well as several of Christo’s signature dishes.
Hosted by Chef Christo and ably accompanied by Head Sommelier and co-host, Gregory Mutambe, the six-course ‘surprise’ will be prepared specially for guests… on the night and paired with a selection of South Africa’s best wines, chosen by Gregory.
“These events are for all those fanatical foodies out there who truly appreciate the sensation of tasting a variety of food at a single sitting,” says Chef Pretorius. “Our menus will present a wonderful combination of flavours and textures and we guarantee a great night out.”
Space is limited to between six and twelve guests. The cost to book an exclusive place at the Chef’s Table is R2150 per person - price includes meal, wine/tea pairing, water and gratuity.
