“entertaining at hamilton russell vineyards” book launch

Olive Hamilton Russell, Entertaining at Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Anthony Hamilton Russell

Last thursday night I attended the launch of Olive Hamilton Russell‘s new book, “A Year on a Cape Wine Estate – Entertaining at Hamilton Russell Vineyards” at the luxurious Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town. It was a spectacular evening of Hamilton Russell Wines and canapés reinterpreted from recipes in Olive’s new book. Guests included fashion designer, Warrick Gautier, Marina Nestel and Henri Slier to name a few. Olive, married to Anthony Hamilton Russell, proprietor of Hamilton Russell Vineyards which was awarded “Top Achiever” and “Wine Cellar of the Year” for 2012 at the South African Wine Index (SAWi), personally autographed books available at the event as guests indulged in great conversation and company. Olive has developed and adapted recipes to showcase the best local produce incorporating seasonal and indigenous ingredients from the surrounding fields, orchards, vineyards and seas. “A Year on a Cape Wine Estate – Entertaining at Hamilton Russell Vineyards” follows the seasons, beginning with spring and each month contains a complete menu, with a starter, main course, side dishes, and dessert.

With superb photography and inspired design, this is a book for lovers of fine cuisine, wonderful wine and anyone who wants to ‘taste’ the winelands of the Cape and is currently available to purchase at Exclusive Books and other leading book stores.
