AYAMA BROAD BEANS FESTIVAL – 11th NOVEMBER 2018

An ancient member of the pea family, broad beans have a nutty taste and buttery texture all of their own. In the culinary world, Vicia faba is known as a broad bean, fava bean or faba bean. Given the amount of nutrition they contain, these energy-boosting, heart-healthy legumes make an excellent addition to one’s diet.
Of Italian origin, the Dalpiaz will highlight the legacy of broad beans in Italy, where the beans rose to prominence after Sicily experienced a failure of all crops except for these beans. Keeping the population from starvation, they subsequently became traditional on Saint Joseph’s Day altars in many Italian communities. The popularity and longevity of these legumes has been sustained by their health benefits. They’re one of the top most high-folate foods around, making them useful for energy metabolism, for nervous system support, for healthy red blood cells, and are a good fit for moms-to-be. They’re also a great lean protein choice with lots of fibre, and contain vitamin K, vitamin B6, zinc, copper, iron, magnesium.
The Ayama Broad Beans Festival will showcase the cultivation of broad beans – served the tasty Italian way.

4-course lunch, wine pairing with all courses.
R350,00 all inclusive.
Limited to 50 people attending. Kids welcome!
