A SENSORY spring sensation will provide a fine feast for all five senses of lovers of laid-back jazz, full-bodied wine and craft beer, excellent cheese and scrumptious snacks this spring at the first Jazzy, Boozy, Cheezy (JBC) Affaire.

It will be hosted at the up-market Africanos Country Estate outside Addo in the picturesque Sundays River Valley over the weekend of September 26 and 27.

Among the highlights will be cooking demonstrations by celebrity chef Reuben Riffel on the Saturday, and local chef Grace Duckworth on the Sunday.

The demonstrations will pair food with scents and flower art that will provide a sensory sensation built around the neroli scent – which is produced from the bitter orange.

“With the citrus trees in full bloom, we believe it is the perfect venue to host an event that will delight all five senses,” said organiser Jenni Honsbein.

“Delighting the ear will be live jazz which will be played throughout the weekend by an eclectic mix of some of the province’s top jazz musicians. Taste buds will be titivated by fine wines, full-bodied craft beers, aromatic coffee, local hand-crafted cheeses, artisan chocolates, oysters, sushi and more.

“We are bringing the Cape Winelands to the Sundays River Valley. Some of the top estates in the country will be represented at the JBC,” Honsbein said.

Beer lovers will be able to savour some of the country’s finest craft brews, some of which are new to the Sundays River Valley.

“Eyes will feast on a special floral display by German-trained designer Fayette Scherwinski.

“It will all come together as a feast for the senses at the JBC Affaire which, judging by the enthusiastic response to the concept, will become an annual event,” she said.
