“Lucky Dip” Lunch at the Table at De Meye

Saturday, 4 May 2013 @ 12h30

The Table at De Meye, in the Stellenbosch wine region, is owned and run by chef Camilla Comins and her husband, food photographer Russel Wasserfall. They describe their philosophy of food as follows:

“The Table is the expression of our love of good food, fantastic produce and wonderful company. We serve a set menu brought to the table in dishes and platters where our guests serve themselves. It’s about the simple pleasures of sitting down to a beautifully cooked meal with family or friends. You will never eat the same meal twice at The Table”.

To read more about this prize-winning restaurant go to www.thetablerestaurant.co.za.

We have given Camila and her brother Jason the freedom to serve us a “lucky dip” lunch, with the seasonal local ingredients they usually use for their meals at this very popular restaurant. It will be a three course meal, and they will be able to decide on the menu after seeing what’s good and available during the week before our lunch. There will be a meat course, as well as a vegetarian option.

The cost for the lunch excluding wine is R280 per person for members and R300 for guests. For children between 8 and 12 years the cost will be R140. Wine from the De Meye farm will be available for your own account. Do visit the website to see the range of wines at reasonable prices www.demeye.co.za.
