The Big Cook-off

In a mere short weeks we are hosting the first in a series of dinner evenings as part of the launch of Passionate Pomegranate Co’s range of products which we had quite a hand in developing. Charlene and Lena from Old Gaol restaurant here in Swellendam were on hand in the kitchen to help and bring with some of their vast experience with delicious food.

On todays test list was a great little beetroot and pomegranate soup which we shall henceforth call The Bonnievale Borscht and also a most amazing Beef Fillet with Pomegranate Jus as well as simple roasted Rosemary Roasted Vegetables. It was all just perfect. BUT will it make the final menu? It has some stiff competition in the shape of Duck Confit, some tagines and an Augusta favorite, Porcini & Garden Herb Risotto with Shiraz & Pomegrate dressing.
