It’s that time of year again when the De Grendel estate takes part in the fourth annual Soup, Sip and Bread Festival in the Durbanville Wine Valley. Winemakers and chefs from the valley will pair soups, stews and wines that will introduce some wonderful winter combinations.
It’s all happening over the weekend of 2 and 3 June, and De Grendel’s head chef, Ian Bergh, along with his kitchen brigade, will warm the cockles of your heart with their delicious cold-weather menu paired to match specially selected De Grendel wines.
Bergh and his team will combine comforting classics and around-the-world flavours to produce an epic three-course lunch menu at the new De Grendel Restaurant, which already has everybody talking.
Check this out:
Experience for yourself how well our merlot, sauvignon blanc and Winifred snuggle up to slow-cooked, spicy fare. Crispy croutons with molten gruyère top the classic French onion soup, while hearty dumplings round off the goulash. Just-baked corn bread accompany earthy potato, sweet corn and truffle chowder. Love naan? This delicious flat bread will pair up with dahl – a fragrant Indian lentil and tomato curry – and our classy Winifred. The soup and bread theme is taken right through to dessert with a moreish bread and butter pudding given a modern twist with vanilla ‘soup’.
Basically, you have little reason to miss out on this soulful soiree of the senses.
