We were privileged to be invited by our great friends John and Billie to a midsummer braai. It was a beautiful December evening and the views from their place at the foot of Table Mountain were stunning.
Their fabulous company and inspiring outdoor setting near Hout Bay was a memorable highlight of our trip.
John fired up his patio braai with some quality local hardwoods to get the embers going and started us off with a taster of some local boerewors ('farmers sausage' in Africaans).
Billie prepared another appetizer of grilled mussels in their shells, and some amazing cous cous and salads to accompany the massive fillet of kingclip.
Eight of us feasted on this delight. People, music, food, weather, dancing. You Capetonians know how to live!
