It’s great when there is a cooking school nearby with an international reputation. From time to time, The Calabash organise special events, of a culinary nature, and we, “The I Don’t Know Band” were lucky enough to be invited to play at their recent PicNic.

The PicNic was set in their extensive garden at the back of the restaurant. People sat in the shady areas of the garden and were offered a special PicNic basket with a variety of specially prepared foods which were inspired by the cuisine of Cape Malay. (see menu).

We played for approximately 3 hours as the evening cooled down. Our repertoire included “Non, Je ne regret rien” – Edith Piaff; Will you still love me tomorrow; I don’t know how to love him from Jesus Christ Superstar, California Dreaming, and the Hotel California – To name just a few titles.
