Stop what you are doing. Pafoof sent me details about this and I think you should know about it. R385 for 5 courses prepared by Dish food paired with premium Cloof wines, including the much talked about Inkspot Vin Noir. This wine was recently awarded 4 stars by The John Platter Wine Guide and with the unusual blend of Pinotage, Shiraz and Cinsaut plus the jet-black colour I cannot wait to try it. The wine will be paired with miso-marinated tuna. But, before you get into that, you will have to struggle your way (whatever) through crispy tempura linefish on black sushi rice. You'll be forced to wash it down with the Daisy Darling Sauvignon/Chenin Blanc blend. Oh the horror! What are we? Animals?
After the tuna and Inkspot combo you'll move on to Szechuan-peppered ostrich terrine served with herbed aioli. Okay, not too kak. Can I get a drink with that? Oh, some Duckitt Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon 2006...why thank you. Next up will be lamb-belly on a bed of bobotie spiced lentils, with butternut croquettes and a banana and red onion salsa. Jeepers. A man could get thirsty eating that. Wait, what's this, a glass of shiraz 2006. Ta.
The final course is a pineapple disk served with pineapple sorbet and berry marshmallows topped with a chocolate froth. Okay, I see what you've done there but I'm a bit parched. What should I have to quench this? The Natural Sweet Chenin Blanc naturally...
This evening has me more than a bit intrigued. Very funky menu, very innovative wines. It's on the 13th of August. See you there?
