Nobu Cape Town has conjured up a magical feast for the senses with the announcement of its programme of elegant dining events for 2015, raising the standards for exquisite food and wine events. Each month the restaurant will host some of South Africa and the world’s finest wines and bubblies, paired with passion, taste and flair to Head Chef Dil Tamang’s and Head Sushi Chef Keisuke “Keke” Itoh’s delightful contemporary Asian cuisine.
Assisting in the pairing and service of both events will be Nobu’s highly regarded wine steward, Mercy Mwai. Kenyan-born Mercy was recently named ‘Up-and-coming Wine Steward of the Year’ at the Inter-Hotel Challenge and she has relished the chance to test her creativity and love of food and wine to make some imaginative and delicious pairings over the coming months. With the evenings hosted by charismatic MC and One&Only Cape Town’s effervescent ambassador Aubrey Ngcungama, Nobu Cape Town’s food and wine events promise an unbeatable combination of the very finest food, wine, flavours and flair.
The high standard of Nobu Cape Town’s fine dining programme is indicated from the very start with a trio of some of the world’s best-loved champagnes playing host at the beginning of the year. On 12th February, Taittinger showcased French sophistication and style as they matched their range of champagnes to Nobu’s delicately layered food. Hard on their heels comes perhaps the best-known champagne marque, Moët et Chandon on the 4th March. For more than 270 years, Moët has been supplying champagne to the crowned heads of Europe, including their current Royal Warrant from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England and Nobu chefs have concocted a truly royal feast to pair with such noble wines.
For the third month in a row, Nobu Cape Town will welcome a champagne house to their restaurant and on 7th April it’s the turn of Veuve Clicquot. With its famous ‘yellow label’, this champagne pays tribute to one of the first ladies of Champagne, Madame Clicquot herself. Also suppliers to the British Royal Household, Veuve traditionally pairs well with food and the chefs will have some delicious combinations in store for their guests.
The three extraordinary champagne dinners in February, March and April as well as the Sake101 dinner in November are priced at R895 per person and includes a four-course dinner. The handpicked four-course wine evenings are priced at R495 per person. The Nobu Cape Town Wine&Dine Calendar is strictly limited as to numbers and bookings are advised as soon as possible.
