Travel & Tell Cooking Demo and Long-table Dinner

Talk about couple goals: not only have Ollie and Julz travelled the world, they’re a multi-talented, foodie-arty pair and the quintessential hosts with the most. Spain, Italy, Mexico, Indonesia, Vietnam… they’re the ultimate frequent flyers and have found that the best way to immerse yourself into a new and different culture is by eating the way locals eat. Join the taste adventure and let them take you through the exotic sights and sounds they’ve experienced, bite by delicious bite.

Highlights

  •  Themed cultural evening inspired by one of the destinations to which the couple have travelled
  • Full dinner and demonstration paired with wines and cocktails
  • Beautifully designed, complimentary recipe book included
  • Gorgeous outdoor setting in the Cape winelands
  • A relaxed, interactive and super-fun atmosphere

Overview

Ollie Swart and Julz Buchanan are the type of couple you want to be friends with: interesting, well-travelled, laid-back, funny and just about the best damn dinner party hosts you’ve ever met. By day, Ollie, who is a trained chef, cooks up a storm for a well-known Cape Town catering company, while Julz is an artist and fashion designer. Let them loose at night, however, and they team up to bring you unforgettable dinner experiences inspired by the exotic locations they’ve travelled to.

Their Travel and Tell evenings happen at Julz’s gorgeous, leafy family home in the Cape wine capital Constantia, and are the perfect FOMO generators for those just itching to get on a plane and see where their visas will take them.

Julz sets the scene with themed décor, a soothing soundtrack of traditional music from whichever destination you’ll be taste-travelling to that night, and beautifully designed menus and take-home recipe booklets.
To get everyone a bit better acquainted, the evening kicks off with a lil’ somethin’ somethin’ to sip and a couple of canapés to whet the appetite, before you’re invited into the impressive kitchen where Ollie demonstrates each of the courses you’ll be eating that night.

As he cooks, the couple shoots the breeze, reliving some of their favourite moments behind the dishes, whether it’s pulled chicken corn tacos, sublimely simple Margherita pizza or seafood paella. Each course is served around a long festive table overlooking the lovely garden, with drinks expertly paired, or course. It’s a no brainer really: good food, great wine, interesting conversation, all in the company of fellow travel junkies. What’s not to love?

Cam On Vietnam

What stayed most with Julz and Ollie about their Vietnam travels are the fresh, punchy flavours and interesting textures – from clear, hearty broths to the crispy pork rice paper snacks found at street food stalls. To set the mood for the evening, a couple of ice cold herb infused cocktails will be served alongside tasters of signature Vietnamese fare, like bite-sized bahn mi (Asia’s delicious answer to the Dagwood), before launching into the demos. Look forward to bright, flavourful noodly broths including beef pho, seafood dishes like squid with spicy green papaya salad and a dessert singing with flavours of lotus seeds.

Spice of Sri Lanka

It’s all about the fragrant, spicy curries Ollie and Julz fell in love with during their travels to Sri Lanka. Kicking things off will be cooling cocktails starring one of Sri Lanka’s most legendary exports, black tea, shaken up with cucumber and cardamom, and canapés like vade (think spicy lentil falafels) with green coconut salsa. The demonstrations will centre around creating the multi-layered flavours of the curries the country’s known for and the local ingredients they like to incorporate, such as Jackfruit and pineapple. Oh, and save space for the Ceylon-tea ice cream and cashew cinnamon crumb for dessert!
