Journeying westwards from Madagascar but keeping to Southern hemisphere latitudes we will be exploring the bounty and flavors of Argentina over the course of this dinner (and the Sunday brunches until then).
As usual this will be a multi-course fixed menu. BYOB encouraged. Please book with the barista on duty in the Mt. Lebo caffe.
As part of our regular weekly schedule of coffee and tea tastings. Clara will be sampling the Uganda Bugiso from 19 Coffee Roasters from 1-3pm.
Exotic Madagascar follows on from last month's Taste of Kenya dinner. Similarly a hybrid culinary mix of Asian and African elements but this time with a French colonial overlay instead of British. Strongly featuring vanilla, and ginger, an array of sub-tropical fruit, seafood and beef.
Traveling back to Africa for February, Kenya promises to be an interesting and flavorsome cuisine with traditional African, colonial and Indian elements.

Cost is $40 per person. BYOB encouraged.
