SA’s most famous white woman, Evita Bezuidenhout, will be in Durban for one night only at the KZNSA Gallery as special guest for their gala benefit evening…
It takes place on Wednesday 5 June.
To honour Mrs Bezuidenhout, the KZNSA Arts Cafe is creating a special menu for the evening, preparing dishes straight out of Evita se Kossie Sikelela cook book.
“The book came from a box full of recipes torn out of Huisgenoot and De Kat,” explains Evita. It was actually prompted and compiled by the expert chef and illustrator from Provence, France, Linda Vicquery as Mrs Bezuidenhout felt she was too busy running the country. The cookbook claims that “If the road to reconciliation run through a country’s belly, Evita’s cookbook provides it’s recipe for peace,”
After a fabulous meal, Mrs Bezuidenhout will be holding court in the main gallery at the KZNSA Gallery for their gala fundraising evening.
The idea is to come to the gallery, enjoy an a la carte al-fresco supper as the sun sets, before moving into the main gallery for an audience with Evita. Puddings, coffee and liqueurs will be available after the show to round off the elegant evening of fabulous bespoke boere cuisine and biting satire.
Mrs Bezuidenhout has donated her time to the gallery to support the innovative work that they do in supporting the city’s creative industries. The KZNSA was founded 108 years ago and it plays a pivotal role in the support and development of the cultural arts in KZN.
The gallery has created a special Boere-Baroque vintage-inspired photo-booth, where for a donation to the gallery of R200, ten audience-members can be individually photographed with Mrs Bezuidenhout, and take home a souvenir framed photograph of themselves and Evita.
Tickets for the show are R250 and can be booked through the gallery. The meal and drinks are for the patron’s own account. Supper is served from 6pm and the show starts at 7.30pm.
For more information, or to book, phone Emme on 031 277 1705. The KZNSA - KwaZulu Natal Society of Arts Gallery can be found at 166 Bulwer Road, Glenwood, Durban.
