The Franschhoek Cap Classique and Champagne Festival

December 20, 2011

I set off, with the Rosettenstein’s, for Franschhoek last swelteringly hot Sunday. By the time we arrived in Franschhoek village, it was 40 degrees celcius outside. But we were ready for the “Magic of Bubbles” festival.


The event, now in its 5th year, has become extremely popular, always offering a jolly good atmosphere.

Live entertainment, prizes for best dressed, and exciting stalls add to its success. The bubbles and champagne flow constantly, and all gastronomic offering is always sensational.

Here are a few of the beautiful stands:


Marvellous looking meat platters.

Typical scene – friends sharing a platter and a bottle of bubbles 🙂

The catering in the Investec tent was OUT. OF. THIS. WORLD!

GREEN CATERING had outdone themselves. 

  • Catering perfectly for the occasion, their various food stands were set up to allow the guests to help themselves throughout the day. 

Caesar salads – fresh and read to be taken to your table. SUCH well thought out presentation.

Asian noodle salad – as well as bottles of various pate’s and spreads.

All the ingredients ready for steak rolls. A chef was on standby to take our orders, and creates each of us a steak roll, according to our personal preferences.

The staff were all so friendly and eager to please!

Macaroons – quite enjoyed the lemon ones. They’re not usually my thing at all.

A craaazily chilled out Possum!

Dee-Anne and The Renster

Bubbles with Pomegranate …Yummy!

We had such a stunning day.

  • The ‘Magic of Bubbles’ ran this year from the 2nd to the 4th December. I will be sure to remind you next year. (sorry Possums 😉 )
