’Tis the sea­son…

Home (South Africa) - - HELLO - By Jo­hané Neil­son • Pho­to­graphs sup­plied

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.

A SWEET DEAL

These MCC truf­fles (R39.99 for a box of three, wool­worths.co.za) make a de­li­cious gift!

For the love of choco­late

Make Christ­mas even more spe­cial with iconic 100g Lindt ted­dies (R54.95)! If you pur­chase two and en­ter the unique codes on their mi­crosite, Lindt will do­nate a school­bag to a child from the SOS Chil­dren’s Vil­lages South Africa. This of­fer is avail­able un­til 25 De­cem­ber 2018; for de­tails, go to lindt.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
