A Vegan Taste of South Africa

  • September 8, 2007 · 6:30 PM
  • Wine By Design winery

Come experience a unique wine and food offering presented by The Savvy Chef, Sharon Picone (www.thesavvychef.com). Sharon's philosophy is that not only should vegetarian food look good, but it should also be a taste sensation. Her South African background has influenced her cooking and in many recipes, her incorporation of herbs, spices and wine are apparent. We invite you to discover a new approach to cooking as Sharon shares these flavor combinations with you. Some are subtle, some are bold, but rest assured they are never boring! One of the most exciting aspects of South Africa is that it's a fusion of so many cultures. In a country that has 11 official languages, it's easy to understand why it's called "The Rainbow Nation". Nowhere else is this fact more apparent than in its cuisine. Afrikaans, British, Cape Malay, Dutch, German, Greek, Indian, Italian, Portuguese, Xhosa and Zulu are just a few of the ethnic influences that have been integrated into the diets and daily lives of South Africans. Add to this South Africa's history as a top wine-producing country and you have a gastronomic gold mine. Journey with us as we explore the vast and exciting flavor combinations available to us when cooking vegetarian cuisine. Juice and water are available instead of wine if you prefer.

    I was disappointed. I was expecting more than 6 dfferent types of hors d'ouvers (sp). At 6:30 in the evening I (and at least one other person) was expecting something closer to dinner. Even though the company was nice and it was good to catch up with folks I haven't seen in a while, I had to leave earlier than I would have other wise liked so I could have dinner.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
