Taste Of Cape Town - A review via Twitter

I've said enough about the Taste of Cape Town Festival so I'm not going to do a whole post about what an awesome time I had there last night. Instead let's have a look at my tweets from the event shall we? Things should be pretty obvious.

2 glasses of Steenberg 1682 Brut and some yellowtail sashimi to kick off @TasteofCT


5:29pm, Mar 24 from mobile web

Salmon in Miso from The Greenhouse and a glass of bush vine Chenin from Bosman Family Vineyards...

there's always going to be a disappointment on a night like this. and it comes in the form of Myoga's salt & pepper prawns. pathetic.

You've got to expand on the argument with the old bat about the ice-cream container, my favourite part of the night!
"What do you want me to do - scoop it off a bed of roses?" Ha ha ha ha ha
