This year is going way too fast for me. So fast that even I, quite the fan of Valentine’s Day despite all the red hearts and cheesy love bears, forgot that it’s today.
So, the question is: How do I save the day?
There is still time for a couple of rescue dates. Consider these:
Couples Cooking Class
If you live in Jo’burg, book yourselves a couples cooking class with the Wooden Spoon Kitchen. The evening includes a welcome drink. You’ll also learn how to make maki rolls with pickled ginger and soy sauce, Vietnamese spring rolls with hoisin and peanut butter dip, as well as mango and lime sorbet with passion fruit.
Cost: R900 per couple
Date: 15 February 2019
Venue: 51 Eleven Street, Linden
Time: 18:00 – 21:00
Steenberg Bubbly Tasting
Enjoy a complimentary pairing of note at Steenberg Farm, the Cape’s first farm. Enjoy a magical, romantic pairing of Steenberg’s blushing Pinot Noir Rose Méthode Cap Classique and heavenly macaroons. This tasting will be available at Steenberg’s tasting room from today until Sunday, 17 February 2019.
Bring the Cape up North
Not from the Cape, but still feel like enjoying a good bottle of bubbly or wine? Try Kleine Zalze‘s 2018 Cinsault Rosé (R56). It is an easy drinking wine, the ideal summer companion, and can be enjoyed on its own or with a spread of fresh summery snacks. It’s perfect for a picnic under the stars (if the rain allows). Or, if you are feeling in the mood for a dark red, consider Alto‘s Rouge 2016 (R112). It displays powerful berry fruit with cigar box and dark chocolate flavours, followed by vanilla and oak spices. Light a fire, create a romantic ambiance, prepare a tasty red meat dish at home and enjoy each other’s company.
