Le Quartier Français in October

Today I head off to the USA where I will be visiting Le Quartier Français friends and contacts; I’ll also be investigating new and emerging trends in the hotel and restaurant world. It promises to be a very exciting trip and I’m going to try keep everyone updated, through this blog, throughout my travels.

On the home front, the weekend of the 10th and 11th of October sees the valley play host to the third annual Franschhoek Uncorked festival. The majority of Franschhoek wine farms use this event to showcase their latest vintages; often choosing to release these vintages at Uncorked. This tradition makes for a tasty weekend!

At Môreson and Bread & Wine Neil Jewell, head chef and South African Charcuterie King, is going to be whipping up a food market of note; and I can guarantee that his famous mussels will definitely be on offer. On the wine front Môreson will be officially introducing their new range Miss Molly wines to the South African public.

Then – come mid-October – Linda Coltart, Margot Janse, Annemarie Steenkamp (the Culinary Concierge) and Neil Jewell are going to be visiting Italy. They will be taking part in the TTG INCONRTI PADIGLIONE B1. So you can expect some lovely updates and perhaps (cross your fingers) a few video clips showcasing their adventures.

October 2009, in the Le Quartier Français family, really looks like it’s set to be a delicious month!
