J.C. Le Roux to partner with award winning chef on tantalising tasting menu

Chef Martin Kobald.


The Austrian born Kobald, who is an honorary President of the South African Chefs Association, will present four bespoke pairings that will each bring out the unique flavour profile of J.C. Le Roux La Vallée, La Vallée Rosé, Brut and the signature Cap Classique, Scintilla 2008.

Boasting creamy buttery tones, the palate pleasing demi-sec La Vallée will be paired with a Thai inspired chicken salad in a crisp wonton cup. A pairing the chef thoughtfully selected to enhance the irresistible flavours of lemongrass, coconut and coriander.

For the blushing La Vallée Rosé with its hint of sweetness, Kobald has created a local favourite of Cape Malay beef curry bunny chow topped with fruity mango chutney. “As the curry spices tantalise your taste buds, the mango chutney and fruit tones of La Vallée Rosé leave a sensation of sweetness in your mouth resulting in the perfect bite!” Kobald expressed.

Kobald is no stranger to the international culinary field, he is currently the Global Chairperson for the World Chefs Without Boarders, as well as the figurehead for his own personal brand ChefMLK. He received international accreditation from City & Guilds in London to train inspiring cooks to become professional chefs, with the first intake of students for the eight month Certificate Course which started in March this year and again in July.
