Six courses of nose to tail bold flavours from foraged and sourced ingredients from the farm, the Swartland region and the West Coast, paired with wines from the region. An unusal and improvised setting, long social tables, roaring fires, and an informal atmosphere.
6pm till late / R750pp includes all drinks and food
A warm summer evening. A lush garden. Soft grass invites bare feet to meet. Stars peep through an darkened night sky. The exhilarating perfumes of food and nature mingle in the air. Welcome to another edition of the BK Smoke & Fire Food Fanfare. On the lawns behind the main house this time. An old-style garden dinner, with long tables, long stories, bold flavours. Lesley and Louise have invited charcutier Gil Ferreira from The Flying Pig cureSmiths in Darling to join the ranks and serve what you've come to expect from our unique pop-up affaires: sensual, unusual culinary compositions of crackling taste, honest ingredients and startling combinations.
