The #tastemakersjozi event on 5 April, which brought together a spectacular collaboration between Workshop55 and Nederburg for an evening of fine food and wine, was a great success.

South Africa’s leading tastemakers and celebrities were invited to experience a decadent menu that was paired with selected Nederburg Heritage Heroes Collection wines.

Workshop55 chef Alexander Webber personally introduced dishes to guests, while Nederburg wine ambassador Chris de Klerk and brand ambassador Walter Carrington Palk also provided insight into the brand’s signature wines.

Workshop55, which is based in Parktown, provides a dining experience that is far from ordinary. Guests pay a R210 entrance fee, enabling them to choose three different dishes.

Webber studied at Prue Leith Chefs Academy in Centurion, before completing an apprenticeship with Jackie Cameron at Hartford House in Mooi River. He explained that many of his dishes were inspired by his travel and food experiences, ensuring a fresh menu that always added something unique.

“Our food has an element of surprise, yet with a hearty, hit-the-spot quality. Each of the dishes work well by themselves yet also make great combinations with each other, depending on how you make your choice,” said Webber.

The menu at the tastemakers evening included dishes such as octopus with hickory smoke, cauliflower puree, truffle, squid ink mayonnaise, pickled radish, and beef sirloin with edamame beans.

Finishing off the mains were delightful desserts including white chocolate and olive blondies with white chocolate mousse, olive sprinkle and lime gel.
