Cape Town | Valentine’s Day is about more than red heart cut-outs and gifts, and this Valentine’s Day Chef Judi is offering love birds the chance to create their own menu at her restaurant, Pilcrow & Cleaver, in the heart of Cape Town on Church Square.
If you ever wanted to have your own private chef and eat from a menu featuring your favourites, 2021 is your year (and after 2020 and all the uncertainties, we all deserve that).
Whether you want to recreate a special memory of a trip you two took to Thailand with its tantalising flavours, go the pasta route or devote date night to a charcuterie board of local finds, Chef Judi is all ears to create your dream dishes.
Sounds like the ideal date night, right? (Grandparents, we hope you are ready to do some babysitting.)
Pilcrow & Cleaver – a Cape Town favourite where the chefs personally listen to your requests, cook your food and serve you – invites you to dine in one of their private booths this Valentine’s Day. The booths, adjacent to the main section of Pilcrow & Cleaver, used to be elevators and were transformed into private spaces where you can safely socially distance from the world (and steal a few kisses while you are at it).
“Food and love are bound together, symbolically linked; we so often have memories connected to a special time shared over a meal or a bottle of wine, so why not recreate that? While I change Pilcrow & Cleaver’s menu every week, this Valentine’s Day I want to put the power in the hand of others by creating a unique three-course menu for each couple.” – Chef Judi Fourie
Pilcrow & Cleaver also boasts an extensive wine list featuring some of South Africa’s finest that you won’t find at your local store, as well as bespoke gintails with D’Aria Renosterbos, A Mari Ocean Gin and Blind Tiger Gin.
The Valentine’s experience at Pilcrow & Cleaver is priced at R500 per person, and there is limited space available for breakfast, lunch and dinner dates in the booths.
