Life’s good when a Saturday afternoon presents the decision to have beef or chicken at Societi Bistro‘s Tour Through France. Opting for one above the other is as challenging as choosing which pair of shoes to save in case of a fire. Impossible, I know so I did the sensible thing and sampled both.
By now you should be familiar with the 10 week culinary trip where restauranteur Peter Weetman and Chef Stefan Marais guides the restaurant’s patrons through select regions using food and wine pairing.
Having lived and cooked his way through France for about two years, Chef Stefan has mastered the art of French rustic cooking. Non of that fine cuisine, three squirts of mousse and a green sprig, Voila! madame, vibe. The kind where you need to hit McDonalds on the way home.
This is wholesome stick-to-your-ribs, straight-to-the-hips, winter comfort in a bowl goodness. Each meal comes paired with one of 10 popular South African wines, eliminating the need to spend time mulling over an extensive wine list. The team has done everything for you.
All that’s left is to sit back, unbuckle your belt and enjoy a hearty meal at one of Cape Town’s most hospitable eateries.
Peter and Stefan, thank you once again for an incredible afternoon.
Societi Bistro Tour Through France starts tomorrow, Wednesday 23 July and runs for the next 10 weeks. By making regular reservations you’ll get to eliminate my beef or chicken dilemna.Nothing easier.
love & light
