Cru Caf Wine Bar and Restaurant in Cape Town, owned by Jacques and Tom Castelein, has launched a newsletter to keep its customers abreast of the latest food and wine developments.

New dishes added to the menu following regular requests include: deep fried camembert and cranberry compote, three-bean and beetroot salad, and Portuguese-style chickpea salad as starters; beef fillet tagliatelle with mushroom sauce, spicy Swahili chicken coconut curry with papaya and red onion salsa, salmon fillet with citrus risotto and salsa verde, and beef Wellington as main courses; and a black forest gateau served all day as dessert.

New to the breakfast menu is oeufs en meurette, which consists of eggs poached in a red Bordeau blend served on thick-cut seared bread with a red wine reduction and accompanied by shallots, mushrooms and bacon.

Ingredients are organic and free-range wherever possible and do not contain preservatives.

Another 14 estates have been added to the already extensive wine list. The establishment now offers over 140 wines from over 70 estates from South Africa, France, Australia and New Zealand. Some 60 different wines are served by the glass.

An online sommelier can now advise patrons on food and wine pairing for home dinner parties. They simply email their menu through to the sommelier, who will advise what to serve when and recommend certain wines for specific dishes.
