MyBraai Chef, Temba Dube, has been working closely with sommeliers to create a really tasty menu for the Fire & Feast Meat Festival
Flame-grilled skewers of cubed beef filled where the beef is marinated in a dukkah spice and olive oil combination, drizzled with a roasted red pepper coulis.
This will be paired with the Leopard’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, a full-bodied, French oak barrel-matured wine with prominent dark fruit aromas (mulberries and blackcurrant) underlined by subtle nuances of violet and cassis. These flavours are enhanced by rich red meat dishes, such as this, as well as desserts with hints of cinnamon or cloves.
Lemon and Thyme Lamb Cutlets
This rich dish with a zesty citrus finish will fuse with the taste of Leopard’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2016, a this full-bodied, gently wooded wine which has upfront aromas of blackcurrant and cassis, supported by undertones of wild flowers, dark chocolate and soft fruit scents with an elegant palate experience.
It’s best served with flavourful meat dishes such as lamb.
The tacos will be filled with slow-roasted chicken breast with a spicy mayonnaise, all enhanced by the Leopard’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2017. This fresh, crisp, full-bodied wine has aromas of bright green bell pepper balanced by playful undertones of fig. It’s a really refreshing wine which pairs well with fresh salads and simple, seasoned ingredients such the tacos.
Biltong Caesar Salad with Anchovy Dressing
This typically South African dish has the mixture of salty biltong and anchovy flavours and zesty lemon. It will be paired with Leopard’s Leap Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2017 which matches the elegant bursts of citrus in the 70% Chardonnay, the flavour of which is beautifully complemented by the red fruit and raspberry aromas of the 30% Pinot Noir. There is a perfect balance between the acidity, of the Chardonnay and the lingering fruitiness of the Pinot Noir, making it the perfect aperitif and a versatile food companion to salads.
