Fran­schhoek fes­ti­val

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

THE in­au­gu­ral Fran­schhoek Craft Fes­ti­val takes place at Môre­son next Satur­day be­tween 11am and 5pm. The def­i­ni­tion of a craft is “an ac­tiv­ity in­volv­ing skill in mak­ing things by hand in a tra­di­tional or non-mech­a­nised way”. This will be an op­por­tu­nity to sam­ple and pur­chase a se­lec­tion of spe­cially cu­rated hand­crafted food and drink as well as spe­cialised and lim­ited edi­tion pieces, in­clud­ing art, jew­ellery and lux­ury leather goods. Plenty of lo­cal wines, cap clas­siques, craft brews and small batch spir­its will slake your thirst while Môre­son’s restau­rant, Bread & Wine, will show­case its ar­ti­sanal char­cu­terie and breads, with many other craft and food pro­duc­ers of­fer­ing cheeses, pas­tries, choco­lates and more, all to the tune of live mu­sic. “This will be hands-down the best show­case of all South Africa’s lo­cal craft pro­duc­ers. Come see for your­self,” said Nikki Fried­man, GM of the fam­i­ly­owned and run farm which is where the lovely Miss Molly bub­bly comes from.
