Impress your guests with Chef Allistaire’s charred oysters on the fire.
This light starter with a hint of zesty lemon and fresh garden herbs, is the perfect way to kick off your Heritage Day braai. Chef Allistaire’s recipe calls for fresh, ethically-sourced Saldanha Bay oysters, lightly poached in a dash of Cap Classique on the open fire.
This dish is best served with a homemade sauce of Cap Classqique, garlic, onion, peppercorn and thyme. Chef Allistaire suggests squeezing a dash of fresh lemon juice over your prepared oysters before serving to enhance the natural flavours of the oysters without overwhelming them.
You simply can’t go wrong with a chilled glass of our Boschendal Grande Cuvée Brut alongside this dish. With hints of citrus and creamy almond notes, this MCC is a well-balanced addition to the dinner party.
