When famous Swedish chef Anders Levén shares his tried and tested recipes with us, not only do we have to try them; we also have to share them with you.
Anders visits the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm about once a year. And he popped in again shortly before South Africa, and the world, entered a state of lockdown.
This chef hosts his own TV shows in Sweden, participates in weekly national radio shows, and works closely with the hotel and restaurant industry – as he shares his knowledge on the culinary world.
This time, he gets to share his ideas with you on how to jazz up fish (Red roman, seabass or snapper) – perfectly paired with our Black Oystercatcher Triton. This is the ideal Easter recipe – and a great way to entertain yourself and your family during lockdown.
Foil-baked Red roman, with lemongrass, chili, garlic and tomato (for 4 persons):
Season the fish with salt, pepper and roughly chopped vegetables, grated garlic and plenty of butter.
Put it all in a double foil package.
Grill over medium hot coals (on the fire).
And enjoy with a large salad and a glass of Black Oystercatcher Triton.
Once you’ve tried the fish, Anders suggests giving this snail recipe a try too. This recipe is called: Periwinkle snail with coconut cream (for 4 persons). You’ll need:
Mash the onion and garlic in butter.
Add the snail meat and fry until golden brown in colour, add the lemongrass and jalapeno in lightly.
Add coconut cream and cook some more.
Add salt & pepper.
Serve it with rice, and a glass of Black Oystercatcher Sauvignon Blanc.

Like so many in the tourism and hospitality sector, these have been 3 uncertain months for us.
There’s something so cheerful and festive about mezze-style spreads. You share, dish and chat intimately around
We’re holding a craft beer weekend and festival in August (hosted by the craft brewery we bought, Fraser’s Folly).
