More reasons to get excited...

This week we received celeb chef Reuben Riffel's final menu for the BBQ extravaganza on Friday night at the Revolution.

Revolutionaries need to be well fed, and there will be no shortcomings here.
A little sneak peak is in order I think...

Roasted & marinated tomatoes, olives, artichokes, capers & herbs
Fragrant turmeric potato salad
Fresh garden salad with croutons, bacon and grated cheese
Chickpea, peppers, feta, cumin and mint salad
Seafood salad, marinara mix with fennel and herb vinaigrette
and more...

Braai concept:
Chicken kebabs-peri peri flavoured
Lamb kebabs
Pork belly p
Beef sirloin and beef patties (free range)

Corn on the cob
Potatoes in the skin
Grill/roasted vegetables (aubergine/peppers/onion/baby marrow)

and, wait for it... Malva pudding!!

Make sure you are there to enjoy all of this, paired with some of the Swartland's best wines while the Kitchen Jamming Blues Band fills the night air with music and you try your hand at age-old jukskei.

Hope to see you there... Book Here tickets are selling fast!
