To alleviate some of the stress I’ve been having with the PaarlApp launch being 2 days away, Ryno told me this morning; “Let’s go to the beach” And so we did…
“Let’s go to the beach”
But as this was already an impulsive outing, I was hungry as soon as we got into the car, so we planned to stop somewhere on the way to get a snack… Oh no… We came across the Blaauwklippen Market. Quite a quaint market compared to the glorious Root44, but a much more enjoyable experience in my opinion. Where we had Pizza-in-a-Cone for the first time and we weren’t disappointed!
We eventually ended up at the beach – Gordon’s Bay specifically, for no reason..
And then the impulse…. JC le Roux completely-unplanned-but-absolutely-fabulous MCC tasting! What an experience. It cannot be put into words. Ryno had the deluxe pairing which involves pairing each of the 5 MCC’s with a different bite-size snack from maccarons to fudge. I opted for a less risky option (if at all); the Nougat Pairing where 5 different flavours of nougat are paired with 5 different MCC’s. For those who don’t know; MCC stands for Methodè Cap Classique, which is basically the South African version of Champagne – same process, different country.
We enjoyed the experience, ambience and venue so much that we made a booking for the day after Christmas with our Christmas guests..
