Who

Farmer Angus

Farmer Angus

"I ditched a London-based career in finance to return to South Africa where I grew up. I began farming at Spier in 2008. Inspired by biodynamic principles, I believe in farming as naturally and holistically as possible. Our happy cattle, pigs and hens are all free-roaming in pastures. The meat and eggs are used in the restaurants across the farm."

Grilled sirloin steak with roasted aubergine puree and gremolata

GRILLED SIRLOIN STEAK WITH ROASTED AUBERGINE PUREE AND GREMOLATA

Whole roasted aubergines result in marrow-like flesh, deeply aromatic (even better when done on an open fire) and moist and just exquisite with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Serve with a sprinkle of punchy gremolata and aged grilled sirloin and 21 Gables Cabernet Sauvignon for a feast of note.

No-raisin beef bobotie with curry leaves

NO-RAISIN BEEF BOBOTIE WITH CURRY LEAVES

Mildly spiced beef mince bobotie remains a true classic and such a favourite all across South Africa. This version is a little less sweet, omitting the dried fruit and apricot jam for a more savoury result. The addition of curry leaves lends a deliciously nutty, complex flavour. Perfect with a crisp, dry white wine like the Spier Signature Chenin Blanc.
