Cognac is often sidelined as an after-dinner drink, but in fact it pairs beautifully with a wide variety of dishes.
This week, I got an invitation to a Hennessy Cognac and food pairing dinner at the Big Easy Durban by Ernie Els.
We savoured the flavours as Trade Marketing Manager for the Moet Hennessy portfolio in South Africa, Nande Mahlangeni grew our appreciation of the quality, and consistency of the Hennessy brand.
What I learnt is that Hennessy's various cognacs have been aged, nurtured and blended by a different number generations of masters.
The Big Easy Head Chef, Noel Kanyemba was also on hand as he guided us through the flavours that he crafted to pair with each selected cognac to create new experiences for our taste buds.
