Day 5 - REUBEN'S BASTILLE FESTIVAL COOK ALONG

Updated: Jul 6

Calling all foodies, aspiring chefs and anyone who loves trying their hand at making a delicious meal. Don your beret and tie those apron strings as you join celebrity chef and Franschhoek local, Reuben Riffel for a fun Bastille Festival inspired cook along this Sunday, 5 July.  Not only is Reuben an internationally acclaimed chef, but he is also known for his food-focussed television shows and advertisements, cookbooks and philanthropic work. One of his better known TV roles is as one of the judges on MasterChef South Africa. 

Reuben’s step by step cook along forms part of the 10-day festival reveal, which started on 1 July. He will be showing you how to prepare a tasty Steak Diane served charred onion, potato fondant, peppercorn, and bone marrow croquettes. Yum! 




All you need to make this delicious meal, which serves four, is the following:

Steak Diane

4 brown onions 

Grapeseed oil, for frying 

680g aged beef tenderloin (at room temp) 

Bone marrow croquettes 

2 large veal bones, cut length ways 

2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley 

70g plain (all-purpose flour) 

1 egg, lightly beaten 

110g dry breadcrumbs to coat 

Vegetable oil, for frying 

Potato fondant 

225g unsalted butter

4 potatoes, peeled trimmed into four rectangular blocks 

Red wine sauce 

1 tablespoon chopped shallots 

1 tablespoon black pepper, freshly cracked 

1 tablespoon pink peppercorns, freshly cracked 

30 ml brandy

120ml red wine 

60ml thick double thick cream

As this will be a live cooking demonstration the idea is for viewers to have their ingredients on hand beforehand, and then join in for the step by step guide. Tune into the Franschhoek Wine Valley’s Facebook page at 12pm on the 5th for a fun and interactive experience.
