Swedish-born sommelier Mia Mårtensson from the Winery of Good Hope will guide guests through the art of food and wine pairing in this fun evening, the first of our August classes. Together with 12 dishes prepared by Liam himself, Mia will take guests through 6 different varietals to explore the flavour dynamics, show the versatility of food and wine and provide a new perspective on the relationship between the two. The objective is to encourage one to build a broader understanding of the subject through combinations that really set off the wine and food partnership perfectly.
Mia is a qualified chef and sommelier (Restaurant Academy in Stockholm) that worked in Michelin-star restaurants in Europe for several years before heading to South Africa in 2005. Before joining the Winery of Good Hope she was the sommelier at the Relais & Chateau Grand Roche Hotel in Paarl for three years.
On the evening, Liam will provide recipes to go with dishes and will answer any questions regarding the food preparation. The class is on 4th of August from 18h30 – 21h30; cost is R650 per person. Seating is limited to 16 people to ensure an intimate and truly interactive food & wine experience. Please get in touch to reserve your place now!
