Wine farms a superb addition to second annual Gourmets & Gourmands festival


Gourmets & Gourmands fundraising evening for the Carpe Diem School

The second annual Gourmets & Gourmands fundraising evening for the Carpe Diem School was held on 28 August 2010, and the sell-out event saw guests once again being wined and dined by some of the Garden Route’s finest restaurants. An added attraction this year however was the pairing of each restaurant with a wine farm to take the culinary experience to another level altogether.


Garden Route & Klein Karoo restaurants

The pairing of Garden Route & Klein Karoo restaurants with specially selected wine farms was a new flavour added to the already fragrant evening. Guests were treated to an unrivalled food and wine experience where chefs and wine farms carefully selected the perfect flavour and aroma combinations to guarantee a perfect taste explosion in every bite.


Wine circles in the Southern Cape

One of the companies who managed to get 7 of their wine farms involved in this incredible evening of giving and gourmet is NLR Wines. Owner Nell-Marie le Roux is well-known in wine circles in the Southern Cape and wanted to align not only her brand, but the brands of her restaurants and wine farms to this wonderful cause. When asked about her involvement with Gourmets & Gourmands this year she quite candidly said, “I would like NLR Wines to become synonymous with the Gourmets & Gourmands brand, because we have the same goal at heart – to help a school like Carpe Diem to keep doing the amazing work they are doing and to facilitate, even if in a small way, seizing the day and helping open doors for the kids who attend the school.” NLR Wines represent 12 wine farms in South Africa and supply fine wines of distinction to the restaurant industry. The 7 participating wine farms who came to the party from the NLR Wines stall were Bon Courage (Robertson), Hermanuapietersfontein (Hermanus), Hartenberg (Stellenbosch), First Sighting (Elim), Weltevrede (Bonnievale/Robertson), Raka (Stanford), Ormonde/Ondine (Darling).


Auction steered by co-owner of the Eden School of Culinary Art, Francois Ferreira.
Making the event even more spectacular was the auction of incredible experiences, paintings and select wines graciously donated for the occasion, skilfully steered by famed foodie and co-owner of the Eden School of Culinary Art Francois Ferreira.


Carpe Diem School were able to raise an incredible amount of R60 000
Through the Gourmets & Gourmands evening, the Carpe Diem School were able to raise an incredible amount of R60 000 to further the school’s important work with the special needs learners in our area. A visibly touched headmaster, Karools Hauptfleish, thanked everyone for their part in the second staging of this glorious event and was extremely excited about the 2011 event that will coincide with the George 200 year celebrations.
So with a sweet treat in one hand and a sip of delectable dessert wine in the other, a toast is raised to another successful event and a dream is cast towards the festival of festivals in George in 2011 and yet another chapter opened for the creative culinary cast to make food and wine pairing magic.

Gourmets & Gourmands Fees - Carpe Diem Skool in George


Gourmets & Gourmands Fees - Carpe Diem Skool in George

Die tweede jaarlikse sitting van Carpe Diem Skool in George se Gourmets & Gourmands feesete vind plaas op 28 Augustus en die opwinding is behoorlik besig om monde te laat water, nie net vir die gastronomiese fees vir die oog en vir die maag wat voorsit gaan word vir gaste nie, maar spesifiek vir die opwindende verskeidenheid lotte wat opgeveil gaan word ten bate van die Carpe Diem Skool.


Verskeie deelnemende restaurant van die Tuinroete en Klein Karoo

What a lot I’ got - Met verlede jaar se veiling nog vars in die geheue van gaste, is die gedagte aan die veiling net so aptytwekkend soos die spyskaarte van die verskeie deelnemende restaurant vandie Tuinroete en Klein Karoo. Die heerlike kombinasies en interessante avonture wat opgesluit lê in van die lotte laat die ou Smarties slagspreuk behoorlik herleef en sal vir seker nie teleurstel nie.


Gasheer Francois Ferreira van die Eden School of Culinary Art en Glanskok van RSG

Die veilingfee van die geleentheid is niemand anders as die nimlike gasheer Francois Ferreira nie, mede-eienaar van die Eden School of Culinary Art en Glanskok van RSG se immergewilde Huiskok-Glanskok program. Sy skerp sin vir humor en pittige kwinkslae beloof om van die veiling ‘n geleentheid van formaat in eie reg te maak.


Naweekpakette by eksotiese Suid-Afrikaanse bestemmings en uitsoekwyne
Van die lipleklekker lotte waarop gaste die aand van die geleentheid hulle hande kan lê is naweekpakette by eksotiese Suid-Afrikaanse bestemmings en uitsoekwyne van die betrokke wynplase wat enige wynkenner na ‘n droomwêreld van smaak en aroma sal vervoer. Daar gaan ook ‘n verskeidenheid skilderye opgeveil word; sommige wat deur Carpe Diem se eie aspirant Van Gogh’s geskilder is en ander wat geskenk is vir die fondsinsamelingsgeleentheid.
Alle skilderye kan hierdie week nog besigtig word by Calorosso Coffee in Meade Straat, een van die deelnemende restaurante.


Bespreek jou kaartjie
As jy nog nie jou kaartjie bespreek het vir die glansaand nie, skakel gerus vir Karools Hauptfleish by Carpe Diem Skool , 044 874 4074 or email admin@carpediemskool@wcape.school.za /
om te hoor of daar dalk ‘n kansellasie of twee was. As jy wel jou kaartjie het kan jy vandag soos een van die 5 uitverkorenes voel wat elk ‘n Willie Wonka Goue Kaartjie gekry het in Roald Dahl se klassieke verhaal van “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, want elke lot is jou beskore en die tafel van vele is reeds gedek, wagtend op jou besoek.

Gourmets & Gourmands festival at the Carpe Diem School in George, South Cape


Gourmets & Gourmands: There’s perfect harmony in food & wine pairing

Food and wine pairing for the connoisseur and the food lover

One thing we all remember from either taking home economics or dating someone who did, is that you have to include all basic food groups in order to create a healthy balanced meal. So it stands to reason that, to most of us, the term food pairing implies serving some vegetables with a portion of carb’s and meat. But to the expert, the connoisseur and even the food lover, the term implies that you have a little Van Gogh in you coupled with a bit of Brangelina; flair and chemistry.

Wine and food pairing is the process of matching food dishes with wine to enhance the dining experience. In many cultures, wine has had a long history of being a staple at the dinner table, and in some ways both the winemaking and culinary traditions of a region will have evolved together over the years.


Gourmets & Gourmands festival at the Carpe Diem School in George

The second annual Gourmets & Gourmands festival at the Carpe Diem School in George takes place on Saturday 28 August 2010.


Top restaurants from the Garden Route and Klein Karoo

This prestigious fundraising event includes top restaurants from the Garden Route and Klein Karoo.
Each restaurant will prepare a four course meal for guests to enjoy and will serve wine to complement their food. Guests will be able to meet the chefs in the open air tented kitchen.

Live music, Francois Ferreira as MC and prizes will make the evening unforgettable.
Please support the Carpe Diem School and come join in this evening of delectable delights!

Delicious food, fine wine and good company is the winning recipe for this evening!

Tickets include a four- course meal, wine, music and entertainment.
Tickets are available from Carpe Diem and sell at R500 per person.

For more information, please feel free to contact Karools Hauptfleish at the Carpe Diem School, 044 874 4074 or email admin@carpediemskool@wcape.school.za .

And until we can get a first-hand taste of how the experts pair, I’ll leave you with this thought. My dearest mother was right about a lot of things in life, but food pairing was clearly not one of them, so I am happy to set the record straight – go ahead, play with your food!

The House of Ngamathuba Glass factory in George focuses on the creation of sustainable and viable opportunities towards empowerment through recycling. They believe that the only way to use recycling as a contributor towards the reduction of carbon footprint is to produce creative functional items that people can effectively use in their homes. Through their fieldwork they discovered that a town such as George contributes over 2 million bottles to the landfill site every year, and that is only one town.

House of Ngamathuba - unique wine glasses and tumblers

The House of Ngamathuba opened up a factory in February 2010 to produce a wide variety of wine glasses and tumblers. They have already produced more than 2000 unique glasses.

Add your company logo or other design to wine glasses

Each bottle is cleaned, sterilized and the paper labels are removed. The bottles are then cut to produce, usually, a tumbler from the lower section and a flute for a wine glass from the top. The wine glasses are completed by attaching an artistic base using UV-adhesive. In some cases the stems of the glasses are decorated with a pewter band or beadwork. Foot pieces can be designed in accordance with the requirements of each client. Your company logo or other design can also be added to the glasses!

Wine glasses and tumblers for use in restaurants and bars
The glasses and tumblers are ideal for use in restaurants, bars and accommodation establishments like guest houses and lodges.
