Cellarmasters in the Kitchen: Cape Winemakers Guild, 30 years of excellence. By Wendy Toerien

Cellarmasters in the Kitchen: Cape Winemakers Guild, 30 years of excellence. By Wendy Toerien

Reviewed by Shante Hutton

"The book itself is a beautiful blend of insights and stories from the 45 Guild members that are inspiring and often humorous combined with two of their much loved recipes which they pair with their own wines. 

The photos are gorgeous and the recipes that are chosen look so good I want to rip them from the pages. If I had to pick just one it would be the GM of Graham Beck Enterprises and winemaker of Silverthorn, John Loubser’s  Spicy Tomato Consommé of which he says ‘The rich flavor of the prawns marries well with the fresh, but slightly fat texture of the Semillon.’"

About the book:

This coffee table book primarily focuses on the winemakers and their thoughts, opinions and philosophies on all things to do with wine, from the growing, making and enjoyment of it, to its integral role – past, present and future – in the culture and lifestyle of the Cape and South Africa.

Beautifully written by Wendy Toerien, the text is both light-hearted and entertaining as well as evocative and informative. Each of the 45 Guild members is featured in a profile piece that includes anecdotes, insights and experiences of a life with food and wine. Also included are two of each winemaker’s favourite recipes, matched with one (or more) of his (or her) top wines.
