Champagne flows freely at ANC business forum gala dinner

Moët champagne was once again the drink of choice at the ANC’s progressive business forum gala dinner on Saturday night. According to reports buckets of Moët champagne lined the bar at the entrance of the hall.

No costs were spared and  PBF co-convener Renier Schoeman said the presidential table, which seated 12 people, cost at least R500 000. A normal table were priced at around R250 000.

Guests were treated to a three course meal, starting with a salmon and bell pepper terrine with cheese shortbread. The main course entailed feta and cheddar stuffed chicken roll with chicken veloute, seared herb crusted fillet with burnt onion sauce, savoury basmati rice, aniseed and rosemary scented potatoes, pumpkin roulade and roasted vegetables.

Guests would finish off their meal with chocolate and yogurt mousse.
