Brian’s Kitchen Pop-ups launched

Brian Berkman showing off some of the fare that will be on offer at his Brians Kitchen Pop-Ups, which will take place at his home in Pringle Bay in December.

Public relations consultant and travel writer, Pringle Bay’s Brian Berkman will present a series of pop-up experiences in December and next year. Brian’s Kitchen Pop-Ups, initially with four engagements in December in his Pringle Bay home, is offering foodie experiences for up to eight guests at a time.

As a Banting/low-carb diet success story, Mr Berkman shed nearly half his body weight by following the diet popularised by Professor Tim Noakes.

“Meals will be Banting friendly. I avoid sugar and carbs carefully so there will be plenty to enjoy for others who do too, but also loads of options for vegetarians and for those who enjoy baked goods and confectionery,” he says.

Lunches are set for Saturday December 15, Sunday December 16, Saturday December 22 and Sunday December 23. The menu includes chicken liver pate as well as hummus with home-baked bread and crackers; smoked, slow-cooked and shredded beef brisket in a rich tomato sauce, vegetarian chickpea, turmeric and egg curry, cauliflower puree and steamed broccoli; green salad with a selection of local cheeses, followed by rich and 100% non-Banting chocolate brownies, carrot cupcakes and peanut cookies with coffee/tea. Guests are invited to bring their own wine. Dishes will be set up family-style for guests to help themselves as many times as they wish.

Guests will be hosted to ensure a convivial afternoon.The long-lunches cost R500.
