INTER HOTEL CHALLENGE! CELEBRATION DINNER

 

It was a glittering evening at the historic Vineyard Hotel & Spa on 26th September 2013. The culmination of much preparation, press lunches with Executive Chefs to introduce their candidates chefs and wine stewards. There were grape to glass experiences in the splendid vineyards with top winemakers and finally a two day cook-off at the South African Chefs Academy with the ten hotels who entered for the first Inter Hotel Challenge in Cape Town and a first in South Africa.

As pretty as a picture! Salmon mi cuit and asparagus with a citrus and pine dressing was a good combination with the Durbanville Hills Biesjes Craal Sauvignon Blanc, echoing the flavours. The wine with a tinge of green pepper, the tartness of gooseberry and light asparagus, and the crisp and fresh fruit finish was a good foil to the salmon.
