To set the mood the winners will enjoy a complimentary glass of wine from Klein Steenberg’s selection of Sauvignon Blanc or Cabernet Sauvignon, while taking in the breathtaking scenery during the garden walk.
At dinner, you’ll look forward to a Grilled Watermelon Canapé with shaved fennel, pomegranate, baby mozzarella, walnuts, watercress and chive oil.

Slow Food Mother City is a local convivium (chapter) of the international Slow Food movement. The Slow Food movement, supported by 150 countries across the world, celebrates, protects and promotes foods that are good, clean and fair. ‘Good food’ is delicious, natural and part of a cultural heritage. ‘Clean food’ is grown sustainably, in an environmentally responsible manner. ‘Fair food’ is produced by farmers and artisans who have food sovereignty: they are free to choose how, when, where and what food they produce, and are adequately remunerated and respected for their work.
Locally, Slow Food Mother City with 100 enrolled members has followed international trends, which has seen an increasing number of members joining to participate in interesting monthly activities that include meals, tastings, lectures and producer visits – all to promote these values.
