Dinner Divas and Bentley & Clarence Launch
A cocktail party for a select list of VIPS took place on 2 December at Le Domaine’s Bonne Chance Restaurant to celebrate the launch of Dinner Divas and Bentley & Clarence. Each VIP guest was treated to delicious mojitos and bubbly, gourmet canapes, desserts and a range of bespoke sausages cooked in full view of the guests.
Leonie Kapp and Bronwyn Bentley have worked together for the past seven years managing the kitchen at Le Domaine in Hillcrest. While they loved the excitement of working in the restaurant environment, they wanted a new challenge, hence the birth of their catering company Dinner Divas.
The Divas believe that eating should be a blissful experience, with bursts of colour and flavour, using seasonal ingredients, prepared with love and joy. All their products are sourced locally (or as close as they can get). Their meat is pasture fed in Ladysmith and even their boxes are fully recyclable (you can use them to start your next braai).
You can look forward to dinner parties with a difference (they will cook on site for you, turning your home into an upmarket restaurant for the night) and their Dinner Divas’ Dinner Box will elevate you to Masterchef status (they will provide a handcrafted wooden box with everything you need to feed your guests – minus the chefs on site).
Dinner Divas will cater for most functions from inception to clean up (but not weddings, there is only room for two divas at a time)! The Divas promise to handle each event individually and work closely with you to create a unique menu customised to your specific requirements.
Bentley & Clarence, of which Bronwyn comprises one half and Steve Clarence comprises the other, is dedicated to producing the best possible meat products for the Divas (for their events, dinner parties and boxes). You can also order their products online and delivery for orders over R500 is free in the upper Highway area. The best part of all is that their meat is free of all the usual nasties that give it such a bad name, and they make their own sausages and spices (ensuring all their products are gluten and MSG free).
And if they’d not eaten enough at the launch, each guest left with a beautiful goodie box containing a coffee and peppermint crisp cupcake, chilli beef sticks and a Christmas mince pie.
