Chocolate. yum

Raw Evening at Closer II: Raw Cheese, Chocolate and Wine Pairing

Talk about decadent! Yes, you read correctly – raw cheese. Finally. And trust me, this cheese is really something! Now I know wine isn’t exactly considered to be part of the raw diet so if you are an old hand at the raw thing and no longer consume any alcoholic beverages, kudos for you; we follow in your footsteps. But for those of you transitioning, and for those of you who are raw but enjoy wine with your meal occasionally, is the perfect opportunity to get out of the house and be treated to a fabulous raw meal.

There will be a number of cheeses for each person to taste, paired specifically with a white wine, a rosé and two darker, more complex red wines. All wines will be vegan and organic. A raw vegan pasta will be served as main course, followed by a sweeter cheese paired with a dessert wine. To
finish off the evening, an assortment of raw chocolates will be served.

During the course of the evening the cheese maker and chocolatier will talk about their brands and answer any questions you might have.

Please book to secure your seat by sending a sms to 079 524 0848 with your name and the number of people attending and get your taste buds ready for a cornucopia of delights!

Cost: R180 per person or R220 per couple
Venue: Closer, 42 Palmer Road, Muizenberg
Date: Friday, 21 October 2011
Time: 18:30 for 19:00

Chocolate Love affair.....

It seems that there is a whole lot to learn about raw chocolate. Unfortunately chocolate is still for treats, gifts, moments of pleasure and sweet dessert fantasy and not so much a food to replace all other foods. But luckily, life is full of all those gorgeous moments where chocolate makes sense so why not enjoy them with a chocolate that is free of sugar, processed milk products, and other wierd stuff (take the time to read the ingredient labels on chocolate bars).

Raw chocolate is a far healthier way to enjoy chocolate, especially combined with other heavenly foods such as good quality nuts and dried fruits. New tastes are on their way such as blueberry and pecan, walnut and fig, and maca, mint and cranberry..... such goddess juciness. yum!
