About once a month Horst Frehse, the General Manager at the Twelve Apostles Hotel, invites a small group of diverse locals to join him at his ‘Table of Friendship’. To meet, chat, mingle and relax in his superb company. These events are organised with the help of Janie van der Spuy of Five Star PR. Yesterday I was lucky enough to be at Horst’s table.
After a relaxed glass of bubbly in the lounge, we took up our table in the Azure Restaurant and were treated to a perfect match of wine and incredible cuisine by Executive Chef Henrico Grobbelaar. An interesting and charming character who kept us entertained as he introduced to us the treat that lay ahead.
The menu included Scallops, Springbok and Chocolate Cremeaux, and for me, who had requested Vegetarian, giant mushrooms, roasted red onion, beetroot and so very much more. Being more of a travel than food blogger, and amid the excitement with which I not so graciously ’attacked’ each dish, I forgot to photograph my main course. But I did capture these images of my and Janie’s Amuse-Bouche, starters and dessert. How amazing! Flavours were intense and beautifully balanced. Henrico’s food excited me!
I love the concept of Friendship. The value being placed on relationships and the philosophy that these lunches embrace. Tomorrow I return to do a full site inspection of the Hotel, which cannot be beaten for location. More pics and posts will follow about the rooms, Spa and activities on offer.
For now I thank Janie and Horst’s for the wonderful long lingering lunch. An honour to have been at your Table of Friendship.
