Dianne Braais with Welmoed Vin-atics!
February 25, 2011 in Uncategorized
Hey hey – well done to Dianne Tabberer for getting her act in gear and giving some of our braai dishes a go this month! Check out what she says below and the cool pics!
“I’ve been meaning to have a go at some of these menus but never quite got round to it. So when we had friends round just days after your braai on Food24, I thought ‘right! time to finally do it!’ So I did. I bought the Welmoed Chenin and the Shiraz from Ultra Liquors and then decided to make 2 of the dishes.
The Caponata was unbelievable. I normally serve chips and dips as a starter, but it was a lovely change to have something as tasty as this. I’m not quite sure which wine went best – probably the Shiraz – but the food itself was fabulous and I will definitely be making this again.
I then made the curried sosaties but I changed them a bit. I used just chicken breasts as I’m not keen on lamb sosaties and I used peach chutney instead of apricot – I couldn’t see apricot chutney anywhere so I wonder if that was what was meant to be used? Anyway, it worked PERFECTLY!! Except that I think you should warn people that they are going to end up looking like chain-smokers for the last 25 years after threading that meat on the sticks – the tumeric stains! The meat was amazingly tender and was still tasty even when we had it cold the next day. Again, we thought the Shiraz went better than the Chenin but we loved the Chenin as well.
Thank you so much for such great new recipes. I thoroughly enjoyed making them both and they are definitely things I will attempt again in the future. I am also going to have a go at the chicken wraps as well although I might not have enough time before the end of this month. I’ve attached a few photos above and hope you like them.”
