What's on in the Cape Winelands and beyond

 

PRESS RELEASE:

The inaugural and irresistible mmm..McGregor Festival brings together galleries & gastronomy, entertainment & eateries… So say ‘mmm..M’ at the mastery of the cellar, kitchen and studio, in a weekend-long programme.

Why not? It’s a feast for the eyes…as well as the tastebuds!

Try tastings from local wineries & finger-food in the main ‘mmm..Marketplace’, including a challenge with TV Masterchef Peter Goffe-Wood, against local contenders. You too can compete with a creative pizza competition..

Friday;

Warm-up, with a ‘Quaff & Quiz’. Or start off seeing ‘Sideways’ – with a fun film? There is even fashion on show with Afro Couture & Cuisine …

Saturday;

Break from the main venue, for cool contemplation in creativity, echoed on plate and canvas, from a chef working alongside a leading local artist.

Or a top Master Brewer tutors you through beers in the pub nearby.

The pottery offers a selection of muscadel-inspired desserts, served on handcrafted, wood-fired dishes, or for film about French food, enjoy Babette’s Feast.

Return for a ‘final fling’ dance & cabaret comedy with Irit Noble to close the marquee, having worked up an appetite for nearby restaurants…

Party-peeps find ‘Curry & classics’ with more dancing to live music until the early hours….

Sunday;

Book ahead, for a ‘Spring Brunch in the Bush’. Or take in tamed tranquillity for ‘Art in the Garden’ (weather permitting)

The fingers of Benjamin Fourie play piano with the forte of wines to finish your wonderful weekend…

Happy hedonism here, as you even find antidotes with detox diagnosis & healing therapies!
