Successful Peninsula School Feeding Association Dinner

The Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) dinner, hosted at Reuben’s Restaurant in Franschhoek, was a huge success with a total of 240 children finding sponsorship.

100 guests, who each paid R370, attended the dinner with a twist: a menu designed around the ingredients used in the dishes the children eat everyday. Ingredients used included: dehydrated vegetables, pilchards in tomato sauce, baked beans, samp, soya, lentils, cabbage, rice, jam and fruit.

The chefs’ – Margot Janse, Reuben Riffel, Neil Jewell and Darren Roberts – did an excellent job. With each managing to turn these seemingly normal ingredients into delectable fine dining cuisine.

Who knew dehydrated vegetables and pilchards in tomato sauce could look and taste so delicious?
