Jazz lunch: the key is good taste
If you are a bibliophile with a penchant for jazz and good food, then this one is right up your alley.
To coincide with the Franschhoek Literary Festival (May 19 – 21), Grande Provence is hosting a jazz luncheon — at The Gallery on the wine estate — featuring the Dan Shout Quartet.
Accompanying Shout, a tenor saxophonist, is Andrew
Ford on piano, Sibusiso Matsimela on double bass and Kevin Gibson on drums.
And preparing the delectable harvest style "farm to table" platters is Grande Provence’s executive chef, Darren Badenhorst.
On the menu will be 24-hour cured and barrel-smoked Franschhoek trout, locally made burrata salad with saffron tomato marmalade and rare seared organic beef fillet with foraged mushroom dust and estate-pickled mustard.
The luncheon is on Saturday, May 20 and tickets are R660, including a welcome drink.
