Book now for Riebeek Valley Braai Day

29 Aug 2014

Braai buffs and grill enthusiasts can join celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel, for a baa-baa-licious celebration at the charming Bartholomeus Klip in the Riebeek Valley, where he will fire up a Terroir to Table feast in preparation for National Braai Day on 13 September. 

Foodie firebugs will also be able to flex their own braai-ceps on the day during a team challenge, when each group will have to create a braai-inspired starter from a mystery box of simple ingredients.

Set on one of the biggest wheat and sheep farms in the Western Cape that includes a 10 000 hectare private nature reserve, Bartholomeus Klip, a mere hour’s drive from Cape Town, is the perfect retreat that allows one to get up close and comfortable with the gourmet side of the grill, while escaping the hustle and bustle with friends and family. 

Riffel will be joined by resident chef and author, Louise Gillett, to share sumptuous tastes and tricks straight from the open fire, and together this duo will let guests in on a few smokin’ hot secrets so that they too, can master this ultimate South African pastime.  

Gillet says whether you’re a seasoned ‘braaistro’ or a roasting rookie, this is your ticket to brush up on your skills and indulge in pure bucolic bliss while we celebrate our heritage. She says this will be a fun, carefree day for the whole family, fuelled by the excitement and daily operations of a working farm. 

On the day, Gillett will sizzle with a few dishes from her award-winning cookbook, ‘Life on a Cape Farm.’
