Baobab Lounge at PRD to Host Bao Bites Reception Featuring Kumusha Wines on April 22
This event will feature small plates of authentic African cuisine prepared by the award-winning culinary team at Plant Riverside District as well as acclaimed Kumusha Wines.
Plant Riverside District will host Bao Bites, an upscale food and wine pairing reception at Baobab Lounge, an immersive African lounge at Plant Riverside District. This event will feature small plates of authentic African cuisine prepared by the award-winning culinary team at Plant Riverside District as well as acclaimed Kumusha Wines.
World-renowned sommelier Tinashe Nyamudoka, the founder of Kumusha Wines, will be in attendance and will share his tasting notes and insight into the winemaking process behind four signature wines. In the Shona language of Zimbabwe, “Kumusha” translates to “your home,” “your roots” or “your origin,” all of which Nyamudoka used as inspiration for Kumusha wines.
Born in Harare, Zimbabwe, Nyamudoka worked his way up to the position of manager at a grocery store when Zimbabwe fell into an economic crisis. After moving to Cape Town, South Africa, he found work polishing cutlery at the fine dining restaurant, The Roundhouse. After being promoted to waiter and without any prior experience of wine, he learned from the beverage director, eventually landing a job as wine steward at Nobu. In 2013, Nyamudoka won the Reaching for the Young Stars Best Wine Steward Award and went on to become the head sommelier at The Test Kitchen in Cape Town.
Bao Bites will feature delicious small plate samplings of African cuisine with wine pairings. Menu highlights include African Deviled Eggs with Za’atar Mousse, Suya Chicken with Peanut Sauce and Bacon Jam, Braised Beef Curry with Lentils and Lamb Kabob with Naan Bread.
