Cape Salmon Bunny Chow: Long Table Dining Event at Bakerie

Bakerie’s new series of Long Table Dining have been selling out fast! For their next event on Thursday 30th March they will be offering a freshly baked chilli and coriander bread bowl filled with a South African cape salmon curry.

To accompany this glorious dish they are pairing a glass of their South African Sangoma Chenin (Riebeek valley) a lovely orchard and tropical fruit flavoured wine, off dry and subtle, a South African white that doesn’t opress the taste buds.

The bunny chow was created in Durban, South Africa home to a large community of people of Indian origin. The precise origins of the food are disputed, although its creation has been dated to the 1940s.

Stories of the origin of bunny chow date as far back as the migrant Indian workers arrival in South Africa. One account suggests that migrant workers from India who were brought to South Africa to work the sugar cane plantations of Kwazulu-natal required a way of carrying their lunches to the field; a hollowed out loaf of bread was a convenient way to transport their vegetarian curries. Meat based fillings came later.
