New Gourmet Braais at Hidden Valley

Head out into the winelands for an afternoon of gourmet braaiing and wine tasting with famed Overture chef, Bertus Basson.

Hidden Valley Wine Estate hosted the first afternoon gourmet braai on the 31 August, which I was lucky enough to attend with my dear friend Seth. Even though the weather was drizzly and chilly (Spring had not yet sprung), we had a lovely afternoon cosying up to fireplaces, sipping great Pinotage and Shiraz and enjoy course after course of fabulous foods cooked over the coals.

My dear friend Ilse (whom many know for her blog The Food Fox) was also there with her beautiful and energetic little toddler, but thanks to the great 'kiddies' section and child minders on hand, she was able to sit back, relax and enjoy the afternoon as much as any of us.

The spread of food on offer was simply sumptuous and course by course platters of steaming sweet potatoes, calamari, breads, pates, fish, beef, salads, steamy puddings were all plonked down on our tables. There was far too much to consume. But we did our best... And I tried something of everything (it was rather difficult to hold back).

The next braai day takes place tomorrow 14 September, with the final event on National Heritage Day on 24 September.

R350 per person (R50 for kids), which includes a gourmet braai feast cooked by Bertus Basson; a special barrel wine tasting as well as a tasting of Hiden Valley wines currently bottles; a bottle of Pinotage or Sauvignon Blanc per couple; entertainment for kids; live music for adults.
Lunches start at 12noon and go until 4ish.
