Veld + Sea #playwithyourfood

My new re-branding is happening slowly with Veld + Sea branching out from Good Hope Gardens Nursery and organically taking on its own roots in a new and delicious field.

Bringing you wild food catering and pop-up events inspired by veld and sea and of course, our seasonal and sustainable foraging courses. There are even sweet whispers of a new product range at summer markets and a recipe book in the creation stages.

Here are a few beautiful images taken by the very talented Gabrielle Holmes at the last pop-up food event held at the foraging classroom at the nursery – a Spier Secret dinner.

“Building up to the Spier Secret festival, we will be hosting a series of intimate secret dinners with selected industry leaders in various locations across Cape Town. Focusing on community and sustainable and ethical food production, hosts will be creating unforgettable experiences in which they will share their knowledge, skills and ultimately, their table with you.”

ROUSHANNA GRAY

Roushanna Gray, an indigenous edibles expert and an innovative cook, will be presenting a four course dinner inspired by veld and sea.

Roushanna has been experimenting in the kitchen with Cape Point Fynbos since she moved, nearly a decade ago, to the Good Hope Gardens Nurserywhere she teaches adults and children about foraging, propagating, and cooking with indigenous edible plants. Her culinary style draws on her own eclectic Cape Malay, Jewish and Christian background while her palate adapts to the seasonal availability of edible flora.

The supper will be hosted by Professors Jeremy Midgley and Nicci Illing of UCT’s Biological Sciences Department at their home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and nestled at the foot of the Apostles (and only ten minutes from the City Bowl, mind!).

Pledges for the supper are R295 per person. Expect an exciting four course menu and a Fynbos tipple, two immensely knowledgable hosts and a small cohort of interested diners enjoying a beautiful location.

Hope to see you there!

The Secret Garden Feast photo story

In the beginning of October we held a magical dining experience in a unique stetting- right in the middle of our plant retail.

Transporting guests to a place of community, nature and kindred spirits, enjoying feasting and festivities, belly dancing and the Gypsy melody’s of fantastic Ottoman Slap.

Not to mention lots of organic wine and Buchu ale.

A huge thank you to Juliette de Combes for taking these beautiful photos.
