Soup, Sip and Bread Festival – another way to experience fine wine and food at De Grendel
Don your winter woollies and rain dance your way to the Durbanville Wine Valley’s annual Soup, Sip and Bread Festival, taking place on 2 -3 June 2012. De Grendel will warm the cockles of your heart with a delicious cold-weather festival menu at our new De Grendel Restaurant which already has everybody talking.
Chef Ian Bergh and his spirited kitchen brigade will steam up the kitchen preparing a three-course menu for lunch with comforting classics and around-the-world flavours to match De Grendel wines.
Experience for yourself how well our merlot, sauvignon blanc and Winifred snuggle up to slow-cooked, spicy fare. Crispy croutons with molten gruyère top the classic French onion soup*, while hearty dumplings round off the goulash. Just-baked corn bread accompany earthy potato, sweet corn and truffle chowder. Love naan? This delicious flat bread will pair up with dahl – a fragrant Indian lentil and tomato curry – and our classy Winifred. The soup and bread theme is taken right through to dessert with a moreish bread and butter pudding given a modern twist with vanilla ‘soup’.
So make your way to De Grendel for a soulful soiree of the senses. Bring family and friends along for the warm company, cozy ambiance and wrap-around views.
Date: Saturday, 2nd and Sunday, 3rd June
Time: 12:00 to 14:30
Cost: R210 per person for a three course menu, including De Grendel wine with starter and main.

*Did you know? French onion soup is not one of the world’s most-loved soups for nothing. Traditionally it was served as a early morning power meal to the workers of Les Halles Market in Paris. It has since become a symbol of Paris, served in casual bistros and swanky restaurants frequented by gourmands.
