Kitchen Safari (sold out)

You’ll be a member of the LIONS or CHEETAHS prowling the Savannah of our town, or the GIRAFFES munching daintily along city treetops, or the ELEPHANTS browsing through the Vernon veldt!

The Fall Fundraiser for Grannies à Gogo: the Vernon – South Africa Connection is set for Saturday, November 7th. Each of our 4 host homes will offer a course of AFRICAN CUISINE for up to 10 guests, with each group moving on to a different host home for the next course. (Unlike the leopard, we WILL change our spots.)

5:00 Appetizer
6:00 Soup
7:00 Main course
8:00 Dessert

So get a group of friends together to carpool, and set out on a unique, delicious, and entertaining evening’s trek through South Africa’s cuisine.

You’ll experience dishes such as:

  • Afrikaans Bean Curry appetizer known as Bunny Chow along with a Biltong Quiche
  • followed by a scrumptious Sweet Potato Soup accompanied by African Corn Bread
  • a main dish of ground beef and tea-soaked fruit known all over South Africa as Bobotie served with two vegetables and a glass of South African wine
  • all topped off with, what else but, Tipsy Tart for dessert!
