What snacks will bs on offer,nead to now if I must eat before meeting.

For hors-d'oeuvre there will be a choice of pan-fried mushrooms, camembert and chopped spring onions and a sesame-flavoured calamari
The main course is scalloped springbok medallions, yellowtail or calamari steak
Sweets are creme-brulee, chocolate dipped asparagus, ice cream and hot chocolate sauce

Several wines will be served, complementing the dishes and ending with a chilled Noble Late Harvest, probably some Villiera 1983 which has been saved for the occasion


Just in case the chef is otherwise engaged, have a proper meal beforehand, but its up to you

Yes, there is one - differently set up from the CT one, but Cape Town passports are valid in Gauteng.  I think Andre and Rodney Gold are going there

There's no club, just a mob of (sometimes) unruly lovers of any reasonable drop getting together under the guise of the pursuit of high fidelity

dunno Kent i am still on the fence on this one - the formal structure (with minutes and chairmen) of the club is turning me off - anyways it is pencilled in the diary - maybe i just need some burn in time to get used to the idea - a music club appeals far more

thanks for the flattery
