Head Chef of The Big Easy Durban Bar & Grill – Janine Fourie – has once again devised a five-course menu for the upcoming Wine-Pairing Dinner on Thursday 28 July. Each course will complement the featured wines from the L’Ormarins estate in Franschhoek in the Western Cape.
The prestigious Anthonij Rupert Wyne has its beginnings on L’Ormarins, which is one of five estates within the collection.
The grapes which produce the wide range of wines are very terroir-specific and endure extremes in weather conditions, altitude and topography. The vineyards on the property are situated mostly on the northern and eastern slopes of the Groot Drakenstein mountain range. Consideration always needs to be taken of the intense heat from the afternoon sun, the high winter rainfall and the south-east wind when planting.
The first Methode Cap Classique has proven to be a winner both locally and abroad but other grapes that have been planted on the estate include the Syrah, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Broaden your wine knowledge and explore the various wines from this exciting estate – paired with Big Easy Head Chef Janine’s delicious menu.
This event will take place on Thursday 28 July, 2016 at a cost R295 per person. Booking essential. To make a reservation, telephone 031 336 8166 or email email@example.com

Enzo – first KZN pizzeria recognised in nationwide challenge
Scottburgh’s renowned Enzo Pizzeria Trattoria has become the first KwaZulu-Natal restaurant to make it into the Top 10 of the nationwide Porcupine Ridge Pizzeria Challenge 2022.
Owner Enzo Tilli is over the moon for making it to the number five spot despite stiff competition from around the country. No KZN restaurants made it into the top 10 in the 2021 challenge.
In 1990, at the tender age of 18, Tilli decided to follow his passion for creating authentic Italian food and with the help of his mother, embarked on an adventure into the unknown opening Enzo Pizzeria in Johannesburg’s West Rand. The authentic pizzas he dished up were an instant hit and it was not long before Tilli opened a second branch at Gold Reef City.
Seven years later Tilli sold his two eateries and moved to KwaZulu Natal to open Enzo Pizzeria Trattoria in Scottburgh. As was the case in Gauteng, it did not take long for Enzo to become a popular destination for locals and tourists who – 25-years later – still can’t get enough of his mouth-wateringly good pizzas. Says Tilli: “Like all good pizzas, ours are made with the finest ingredients and cooked to perfection in a wood-burning clay oven.”
Despite the celebrations, Tilli made some time to answer a few questions about Enzo and – more importantly – his coveted pizzas!
Tell us a bit about your restaurant and what makes your pizzas so popular
Enzo’s is more an eatery or as we say in Italy a ‘trattoria’ which means casual and relaxed dining. Our pizzas are made in the authentic Neapolitan style, in a wood-burning oven. They have a light and airy base, and we use only the best quality ingredients. We believe that whoever is making the pizza should have lots of love for what they are creating and that their passion is a big part of what makes them so good.
What is your signature pizza or best-seller?
Without doubt the Del Greco pizza which has a bacon feta and fresh avocado topping. We also have four different starter pizzas, three Calzongino choices (foot long, fold over pizzas), six different vegetarian pizzas and 19 more other options from which to choose.
What’s better, a thin crust or a thick crust?
For me, it must have a thin, light base and slightly charred on the bottom and must always be cooked in a wood-burning oven just like in Naples, the home of the pizza.
What is your favourite pizza topping?
I still like the classics – a Regina, a quattro stagioni or a simple Margarita with anchovies.
