The Bacon Menu

December is finally here and before you all think One Ingredient will be jumping on the Christmas band wagon by serving up a turkey menu, think again! As a treat for Christmas I thought I would spoil you all by serving up the most popular menu of 2014, before you start living on a diet of left over turkey sandwiches. For two nights only, I present to you the One Ingredient Bacon Menu…
 

Dates: 5th & 6th December

Cost: R500 per person

Home made BBQ beans, Crispy bacon, fried quails egg on toasted brioche

The wine paired with the bacon menu will be Painted Wolf Wines on December 5th and Mooiplaas on December 6th. Naturally the wine makers will be there to help us pay homage to the pig!
There will only be two One Ingredient dinners in December so get your reservations in early to avoid disappointment. 
If you can’t make it next week then I wish you all the best with your turkey!
