Some pairing fun with Perfect Pairing SA

by Karisa

I recently attended an interesting little pairing event hosted by Perfect Pairing SA.  Who is Perfect Pairing SA? Well they’re a group of cool folks who’ll be hosting monthly events during which they aim to deliver the “perfect pairing” of food, drinks and experiences, all the while supporting 100% local producers.

The May event took place at the very sexy Ghibli Bar and Pool Terrace of the all new Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence, Cape Town


Very sexy indeed…

On the pairing menu for the evening we had 3 cocktails made with Triple Three Gin which had been carefully paired with 3 dishes created by Radisson Blu Cape Town’s talented chef.

I didn’t get a pic of dessert, because by then the sun had set and the lighting was bad… but I can say that it involved chocolate and of course more gin #highfivetothat

I may not have gotten a photo of dessert, but I did get some great sunset shots…

Inner-city prettiness at it’s best, that’s for sure…

Wanna join Perfect Pairing SA for their next event?  Then take note of the following details for The Village Idiot X Sxollie Cider:

  • Date: 24th June
  • Venue: The Village Idiot, 32 Loop Street
  • Time: 16:30 – 19:30
  • Cost: R150 pp & tickets are secured by emailing –

There’s also a chance to WIN a R500 The Village Idiot meal voucher and / or a Sxollie Cider hamper on the night, PLUS you get 25% off dinner on the night with The Village Idiot if you book a table through Perfect Pairing SA.  As you can see from my pics your pairing dishes are starter/tapas size, so you’ll still have space for something more substantial after if you’ve got a decent appetite.

Event details can also be found over here

So yeah, if you’re keen to try something a little different.  Check it out.  I’m personally a big fan of both Sxollie cider and The Village Idiot, so I predict it’ll be a goodie.
