Pick ‘n Pay grass-fed meat and wine event – 25 June 2015
What a ‘rare’ pair!
Friday, 26 June 2015: Guests were treated to an evening of fabulous food and wine at the Pick ‘n Pay Good Food Studio on William Nicol Drive on Thursday 25 June. Not just another standard food and wine pairing, the event centred around grass-fed meat from the Rare Meat Company with an educational focus on its health benefits.
“As much as we are a nation of meat eaters, few of us actually question the quality of our cuts. Free-range and grass-fed meat comes from cattle that feed only on grass and are farmed in a much more ethical, sustainable manner than grain-fed cattle,” says Derek Bresgi of The Rare Meat Company, an exclusive supplier of high quality, humanely produced, free-range and grass-fed meat products.
“The benefits of eating grass-fed beef are numerous. The meat contains more Omega-3 fatty acids as well as Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), both of which can protect against various heart diseases. It also has more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than grain-fed beef and is free from any antibiotics and hormones,” says Bresgi.
Perfect for a chilly Winters evening, the menu for the evening comprised mouth-watering dishes including French lamb trim chop with potato and marrow bone croquette with a cream caper sauce and beef burger on a brioche bun with a red wine glaze and smoked maple bacon. These meals were perfectly paired with a selection of white and red wines from the Bottega Family Idiom Wine Collection. At the end of the evening, guests walked away with complimentary packs of grass-fed, free-range biltong, feeling well satiated after unforgettable food and wine combinations.
