The powerhouse collab bringing a weekly culinary nosh-up to your home

This Women’s Month will see a powerhouse collaboration between five restaurants and five wineries founded by renowned female chefs and winemakers. The collaboration, dubbed Female Forward Feasts, is bringing a culinary banquet to you every Thursday for the month of August.

The objective is to support the local food and wine industry that the Cape’s diverse culinary scene has to offer while paying homage to the phenomenal women who work within it – all from the comfort of your own home. Menus will be available for pickup or delivery. Don’t forget to also order a selection of local wines that will be delivered as soon as the alcohol ban is lifted.

Below are the powerhouse duos, along with menus and wine pairings:
