Out & About: Table of Friendship Lunch at the Twelve Apostles

I had the pleasure of joining Horst Frehse at Horst’s Table of Friendship and his guests at Azure restaurant, The Twelve Apostles Hotel.  Executive Chef, Christo Pretorius introduced two mouth-watering Tasting Menus:  Taste of the Sea and Taste of the Earth.   The food was superb and perfectly paired with the wines.   Have a look at the dishes below:
