Since our one true love is chocolate, we want to put it in everything this Valentine’s Day. So we decided to challenge chef Ballot to create a unique chocolate-inspired savoury dish just for MyKitchen. He rolled a scrumptious pork loin in a cocoa-coffee rub, that resulted in the yummiest, crispiest crust when it arrived on the plate. Served with carrots, baby marrow and a white chocolate and cranberry sauce (white chocolate, coffee and pork are a match made in heaven, by the way), we ate every last bite.
To celebrate the month of love and our one true love, chocolate, we challenged Chef Westley to create a choccy-inspired savoury dish just for us, but in true Haute Cabrière style, of course. We were definitely not disappointed as we scooped up every bite of his grilled springbok leg and dark chocolate sauce, served with grilled peaches and crispy kale. This dish pairs surprisingly well with the vineyard’s Pierre Jourdan Bell Rose, and we enjoyed a glass or two with our meal as cellar master Takuan explained to us that you can serve sparkling wine with almost anything, should you be worried as to what to give your guests to sip at dinner.
