Take your taste buds on a journey of discovery at the Taste of Cape Town festival from 5 – 8 May at the Greenpoint Cricket Club. Fourteen of the top Cape Town restaurants will be offering taster portions of their most delectable fare; just one of the features, which includes cooking demos, produce stalls, beer, wine and whisky tastings, to name but a few.
Here’s what Cape Grace Executive Chef, Malika van Reenen, will be cooking at her open kitchen:
- Confit duck tart with preserved ginger and pickled shimiji mushrooms
- Cape Grace ‘Paella’
- Dark chocolate and toasted coriander seed croustillant tart
Malika says that when people express how much they have enjoyed her food it gives her great satisfaction and motivation. We encourage you to come and sample the delicious tasters that she will be preparing!
We’re sure you’ll enjoy Malika’s tasters so much that you’ll be coming back for more again and again – so we have made this exclusive Taste of Cape Town menu available at Signal Restaurant from after Taste of Cape Town until the end of July, for R195/person.
The festival currency used at all stalls are CROWNS, which can be bought as you enter or before the event from Computicket. A CROWN is worth R5 and prices range from 4 to 8 CROWNS per dish.
Entry to the event is R70 and entry times are:
Thursday 5 May: 6.30pm – 10.30pm
Friday 6 May: 6.30pm – 10.30pm
Saturday 7 May: 1pm – 5pm and 6.30pm-10.30pm
Sunday 8 May: 12pm – 5pm
According to Malika, last year was, “Brilliant! Really well supported and even rain didn’t stop it from being a huge success.” The last day of the show is Mother’s Day and your mother cannot fail to appreciate the gesture of taking her to a place where she can eat all she likes without having to cook!
Be sure to support Cape Grace’s Head Pastry Chef, Lorraine Meaney, who will be doing a demo in the Chef’s Theatre on Saturday 7 May from 9.30pm – 10pm.
Look forward to seeing you there!
