Blanko Supper Club – Kove Collection

Blanko restaurant at the Alphen Hotel, part of the Kove Collection Group, recently held its first Supper Club.

Blanko Restaurant’s Chef along with Nic van Aarde, Chief Winemaker at Warwick wines presented an evening of good food, good wine and great company.

Having not yet been to Blanko, I checked the reviews on line and they were certainly on all ends of the extreme, giving us no idea what to expect.

If I am not mistaken there was 2 functions happening at the Hotel and whilst the hostesses did their best on arrival one couldn’t help but feel cramped in the dining room the event was to be held.

Nic regaled us with stories of the farm and also the fin times he is having with his 3 month old. He certainly made the evening a lot more enjoyable.

The meal in general was good, the wines above average, the service could have been better, as I found myself refilling our glasses of water for most of the evening.

Being the first, one will assume they will learn from this and only improve. We look forward to attending the next ones as they certainly have something here that Kove Collection can build on.
