I had no idea what to expect. I mean I have had a nibble of his work here and there, but never a complete David Kramer creation, from start to finish. Paired with a glass of Solms Delta Cape Jazz it was a sumptuous evening.

David Kramer and 10 other brilliant preformers lit the concert hall at the baxter on a night of Wine and Theatre (you thought I would say food, didn’t yeah) but David Kramer’s Breyani recipe requires no rice, or spices, nor chicken or prawns. Still many left the evening bursting at the seems filled with delight (and a glass or 2 of Vastrap or Langarm)

Greeted in the early evening by men in shiney hats, ready to pour happiness into a glass, many milled around chatting, meeting and tweeting (a screen was set up to follow all the tweets) awaiting the presentation of the classic Cape Town dish
