Silwood Cookery School 1st year’s Spring Lunch

Silwood Cookery School 2013 First Year Students

Last week I attended a Spring Lunch at Silwood Cookery School in Rondebosch.

First Course
Confit Chicken Terrine, Pistachio Ensemble

Having recently judged the cookery of Reach for Young Stars arranged and presented by the indefatigable Annette Kesler and Chania Morritt Smith of Showcook, my palate was in training for this incredible experience.

Palate Cleanser
Celery & Apple Sorbet

Have run a National Top Ten Restaurant, I would have been happy to see any of these dishes leave my kitchen, they were top class stuff.  And prepared by students on the first – of three – years at The Silwood Cookery School in Cape Town.

Main Course
Grilled Kob, Garden Pea Risotto, Carrots a la Vichy, Citrus Buerre Blanc

The wine – Villiera Chenin Blanc 2011 and the Villiera “Down to Earth” Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011.

White Chocolate Panna Cotta, Lavender Ice Cream, Biscuit Crumble, Meringues, Dessert Wine Jelly
