Food & drinks to feed your senses
’Tis the season…
Let me entertain you!
Set a Table (R380, Jacana Media) is restauranteur Karen Dudley’s third offering, following in the footsteps of her much-loved A Week in the Kitchen cookbooks. Hosting a dinner party – whether for strangers, acquaintances, family or friends – is a big deal and, according to Karen, when we set the table, we reveal ourselves in an intimate way. With this collection of mouthwatering tried-andtested recipes, Karen explores the ritual of entertaining and creating memorable experiences.
IN FULL BLOOM
Van Loveren Family Vineyards in Robertson has dedicated its first Perléstyled Pinot Grigio Rosé to the late Retief matriarch Jean, who was well-known for her love of gardening and the lush garden she and her husband Hennie established at the estate in 1939. This passion is reflected in the label design of the Perlé de Jean Pinot Grigio 2018 (R69.99, thewinehub.membernet.co.za). Beautiful!
The art of glass
Every year, Belgian beer company Duvel selects an international artist to contribute an artwork that will grace a limited edition of their signature glass. This year, Duvel is celebrating the ‘Art of Glass’ and its first collaboration with an African artist! A striking artwork by Lizette Chirrime dubbed ‘Madonna’ illustrates the multiple facets and layered complexity of the female form. This new Duvel glass will be available at select bars and restaurants in Cape Town and Johannesburg, with a limited quantity available for the beer-loving public to purchase. To find out more, go to belgianbeercompany.co.za.

This dry, slightly-sparkling wine is a pure expression of summer and will partner very well with pork chops and grilled peaches, summer salads, sushi, grilled vegetables and fresh berries. – Johline Barnardt, Perlé de Jean brand manager
