How does a starter of chicken liver paté and hummus with home-baked bread and crackers, followed by slow-cooked beef brisket in rich tomato sauce tickle your tastebuds? Vegetarians will find a chickpea, turmeric and egg curry, with green salad, while Banting devotees can enjoy steamed broccoli or cauliflower puree with their beef. Local cheeses make the finale but – those who indulge in sweet treats - can tuck into non-Banting chocolate brownies, carrot cupcakes and peanut cookies. Make as many return trips to the pop-up buffet as you wish and finish with tea or coffee. Bring your own wine to the occasion and relish the friendly ambience where no more than eight guests will gather at one time.
Make a delectable date for an informal weekend seaside lunch with Brian Berkman in his airy Pringle Bay home. Deciding to join the trend of pop-up kitchen experiences, this well-known public relations consultant and travel writer is presenting a series of long, slow buffet-style lunches next month. The dates to diarise are December 15 and 16 and December 22 and 23.
Brian will be on hand to chat about the dishes and make sure that those avoiding carbs and sugar choose the acceptable fare.
The cost is R500 a head and bookings should be made via Quicket or by following the link at BrianBerkman.com.
