Instagram Roundup – Taste of Cape Town 2013

Last night my boyfriend and I attended Taste of Cape Town. I usually like to attend the first evening to avoid the crowds, but I was lucky enough to win a double ticket from for the Friday session. The crowds were manageable and the weather was pretty good. It was a bit chilly but the wind that had been blowing on Thursday night was completely gone. We had a lovely evening and got to taste some delicious dishes.

Here are the items we tried.

Duck liver cream, pickled red apple and leek mignonette from Azure. #TasteofCT Duck, edamame bean, five spice, potpourri risotto from De Grendel. #TasteofCT Brasserie Scotch egg with smoked paprika aioli from The Brasserie. #TasteofCT
Nobu-style thin slices of line fish with during onions& ginger, drizzled with hot sesame oil & finished with a soy reduction & wasabi mayonnaise from 96 Winery Road. #TasteofCT Karoo "lams sout-ribbetjie" braised with wild herbs & served with wild garlic potato custard from Fyndraai. #TasteofCT Black River Coffee Stout from @BostonBreweries at the @thecraftbeerpro stand. #TasteofCT
