Top students from various schools around South Africa were invited to spend a day at the ICA and be spoiled with a three course wine paring dinner at Apprentice Restaurant in Stellenbosch.
The day started at 09:00, the students were welcomed one by one with hot coffee and sweet pastries. 12 Participants were divided up in 4 groups and they had to explore 4 rare ingredients, Truffles, Saffron, Vanilla and Rapadura. Everyone looked like they had tons of fun running around on the campus and solving riddles and puzzles. At 13:00 they had build up an appetite and lunch was served of sweet potato fritters and chicken wraps and to drink home-made apple and vanilla iced tea.
With tummies full and their taste buds satisfied they gathered in the dem area for a demonstration on recipes with the four ingredients they explored. At 17:15 the chef lecturers and students made their way down to Andringa Street, Stellenbosch where the teachers joined them for a three course wine paired dinner at Apprentice restaurant.
After dinner we said our farewell’s but the ICA hopes to see you soon again.
We are looking forward to the next Top Achievers!
