Celebrate Your Heritage With Lanzerac And The Giggling Gourmet

If you’re a regular reader of Relax With Dax you would have seen my review of Lanzerac a few months back, you might also have seen my photo gallery. Lanzerac changed ownership about 2 years ago and has been steadily revamped since then. I was blown away by the place. The hotel looks amazing, the spa is stunning, the food was spectacular and the wines were fantastic. Not to mention the function venues, the deli, and so much more. I encouraged everyone to treat themselves to a visit and now you have the perfect excuse!

In anticipation of Heritage Day, Lanzerac has put together a fabulous event on the 19th of September. The hotel’s executive chef, Stephen Fraser and Jenny Morris will be collaborating to impress your taste buds. You’ll be welcomed with canapés and wines from the Lanzerac Heritage range (these wines are incredible). This will be followed by a 3 course lunch paired with wines from the Lanzerac premium range. There will be live entertainment, lucky draws and goodie bags. All of this for only R595 per person! Plus they have discounted the hotel rooms that night if you would like to stay over and experience the fabulous Lanzerac hotel.

Below is the full press release with all the details. I suggest you book quickly, before all the spaces are taken!

Treat your taste buds to a food and wine extravaganza as Lanzerac Hotel’s Executive Chef, Stephen Fraser and world-renowned foodie, Jenny Morris (aka The Giggling Gourmet) whip up a feast of gastronomic proportions. They will be treating your eyes (and appetite) to their culinary magic on Saturday, 19 September.

In celebration of National Heritage Day these two iconic South African brands, together with Lanzerac Cellar Master, Wynand Lategan, will be treating guests to an unforgettable day of delicious food, superb wines and awesome company.

Upon arrival at the estate you’ll be treated to a welcome drink as well as appetizing canapés. Whilst mingling use the opportunity to sip, sample and savour wines from Lanzerac’s limited release Heritage range. These include the Pionier Pinotage, The Mrs English Chardonnay and Le Général – three significant personalities within the Lanzerac range, representing the estate’s rich heritage. Wynand will demonstrate a sabrage, adding extra excitement to the day.

From there you’ll be escorted to the recently refurbished Cellar Hall for a gourmet three-course meal fit for royalty. Your dining experience includes an interactive food demo by Stephen and Jenny who will each take turns in keeping you entertained as they are tasked to create a course. Wines from Lanzerac’s Premium range have been carefully paired with the lunch to create the perfect culinary marriage between food and wine.

Live entertainment will allow for an all round experience, as well as one or two (or perhaps three) amazing lucky draw prizes on the day.  The perfect day out in the Winelands!

The cost is R595 per person and includes a three-course lunch; welcome drinks and canapés, wines served with the meal, the live entertainment, as well as a goodie bag.
