Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – and with it an excuse to revel in all things romantic. Make your 2015 Valentine’s Day memorable at one of these special Valentine’s Day meals and events taking place around South Africa.
French cuisine is considered the most ‘romantic’, and A la Bouffe in Linden sets out to prove this with a 5-course menu and wine pairing. For the adventurous eater, try the frog legs paired with Kir.
Grande Provence is offering a delectable Valentine’s Day special, a seductive 3-course meal with tempting extras and wine suggestions by a pro Sommelier, starting off with a glass of bubbly and oysters. Culinary highlights include yuzu caviar, cured Franschhoek trout tartar and Valrhona and hazelnut fondant.
Spend the evening at one of the most beautiful and romantic venues in South Africa, as voted by the World Luxury Awards in 2014. Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa is hosting an extra special Valentine’s Day affair showcasing modern cuisine – including salmon roulade, oysters and champagne sorbet! End the evening “Dancing under the Stars” in the garden to the soulful sounds of Bornfire.
Delicious food makes for a delicious evening and the duet of preserved ginger and strawberry marinated oysters with ginger beer jelly at The Tobago Restaurant will set just the right mood for your romantic evening. The special Valentine’s baked red velvet cheese cake with berry compote and vanilla ice cream at Parc Fermé is bound to get anyone in the mood for love.
For something a little different, there will be a DJ, Latin Band and Dance Show for your Valentine’s entertainment at Rodizio in Fourways.
If you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day this year, just remember, “All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
