Steyn City Golf Club

The restaurant awards ‘season’ has happened! Two weeks ago, the Rossouw’s Restaurant Guide had their awards ceremony at Steyn City in Johannesburg and this past Sunday, Eat Out had theirs at Thunder City in Cape Town.

The Rossouw’s event, held at the Golf Club at Steyn City, was a smart casual event, attended by about 100 people. The food by David Higgs of 500 at The Saxon, was paired with some awesome wines.

Food Superstitions

Zwilling Knife Set w Bamboo Stand

Zwilling Knife Set w Bamboo Stand

The internet is an amazing tool, and sometimes, sometimes, Facebook connects you to sites that some wouldn’t ordinarily visit. Bon Appetit is one such site: http://www.bonappetit.com/  We love this article about food superstitions, for example: Knives: passing a knife directly to someone is not advised, it will bring discord between you and that person. Instead, place the knife on a table and the person can then take it. Another ‘problem’ area with knives is the giving or receiving of knives as gifts. It is generally not advised, but the way around it is that the person RECEIVING the knife, must give a coin to the person giving the knife. Who knew? Take a look at all the other superstitions listed, it’s really just a little bit of fun on a Monday afternoon: http://www.bonappetit.com/entertaining-style/pop-culture/slideshow/20-food-kitchen-superstitions/?slide=1
