Chefs Warehouse hosted an intimate evening with Newton Johnson wines last week. Bevan Newton Johnson cracked open a few bottles of their superb wines, Liam demonstrated how easy it was to make some great-looking and delicious snacks and and everyone had a brilliant time enjoying them in the cooking studio.

Newton Johnson is a family run winery, with their wines all grown and made in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley near Hermanus. We drank their Rose, the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and the Syrah Mourvedre. If you haven’t had a bottle of their Pinot Noir, I suggest you get hold of some – this wine knocked our socks off.

Liam’s snacks for the evening were a Tataki of Tuna (seared tuna with ponzu sauce), Truffle Sandwiches (sliced truffle on toasted sourdough) and Strawberry Spider (strawberry consomme, vanilla bean ice cream and a dash of soda water) for dessert. Just the kind of thing you’ll be able to whip up once you’ve done his course.

Thanks to all that joined in on the fun, and to Newton Johnson wines. More pics from the night below…
