Condé Nast House & Garden hosted the eagerly awaited Gourmet Restaurant Awards, in partnership with Whirlpool and Waterfall Corner, on 18 October 2018. The awards honoured the most talented establishments and individuals that have made their mark on South Africa’s culinary sphere. The event took place at Life Grand Café in Waterfall Corner.
An event celebrating South Africa’s culinary elite cannot be held without a tempting menu of foods. Life Grand Café served a delectable lunch that began with a sushi spread, including Volcano Rolls made with fresh tuna and avocado, and Crispy Crab prepared with soft shell crab, black sushi rice and cream cheese. The tables were elegantly decorated with snacks such as green bean, cauliflower and onion pickles, biltong and hummus.
The main course consisted of grilled prawns bathed in Café de Paris butter, baby kingklip and chicken souvla. Added to the array of dishes was 90 day, dry-aged steak on boards, Greek roasted potatoes, roasted vegetables, jus and foraged mushroom sauce. For dessert, guests could indulge in artisanal winelands cheeses displayed on a cheese installation, as well as baklava shards, popcorn panacotta and death by chocolate.
The event ended off on a delightful note as guests were spoilt with a goodie bag filled with luxurious products from Healing Earth. These included the Lemon Verbena Shower Gel and Body Lotion, Healing Ocean Hand & Body Wash and Coffee, Cinnamon & Orange Polish. The goodie bag also contained wooden spoons and cutting boards from Whirlpool, and a copy of the November issue of Condé Nast House & Garden, featuring a special section for Gourmet.
