Plett Tourism’s 4th edition of Food & Film got underway on Monday night at The White House Theatre with the screening of the 60’s controversial and once banned movie Katrina, a shocking exposé of the horrors of apartheid and the racial classification system. The film, which originally premiered in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia), was attended by the star of the story, Jill Kirkland, who now lives in Plettenberg Bay.

Nguni chef Murray Pienaar prepared select Cape Malay inspired dishes which were paired with beautiful Kay & Monty wines, one of Plett’s premier wine farms. The delicious food and crisp, clean Kay & Monty wines were plentiful and the film was followed by an impressive spread of traditional Cape Malay desserts and fresh koeksusters to the delight of guests.

Plett Food & Film continues tonight (Tue 11th July) with the screening of the film Tangerines, and on Wednesday night it’s the Hollywood classic – Casablanca. The Plett Food & Film is sponsored by Plett Tourism, Wesgro and Checkers. The opening night of Katrina was co-sponsored by Pam Golding Properties Plettenberg Bay & Knysna.
