So Y² was recently invited to attend the launch of a new restaurant, Café Dijon in Stellies, with their speaker/owner Angus … or so I thought! It was actually the launch of a new beef called Angus at an already established restaurant on Plein Street. The speaker was from AgriSA with a very Afrikaans name; Klasie Jacobs. He is actively involved in the Angus Beef Association, and a cattle farmer himself.
The event was also attended by the most prominent cattle farmers with shoulders and chests as wide and big as their cattle’s. Understandable then, with all of this, that I would feel like ‘China in a Bulls Shop’ (bulls has no relation to rugby which is an entirely different ballgame, pun intended, so calm down). My knowledge of cattle and its meat products is about as extensive as understanding the internal combustion process of a standard sedan vehicle. I never cook and when I do it’s Woolies (obviously) which nicely super seals the perfect steak and that is perfect every time. It even led me to this FB update and revelation a few months ago:
Therefore, here are some cool questions to reinforce my learning but also educate my all, but three loyal readers (one being my mom):
1. Also known as Aberdeen Angus, the beef is named after the areas of the same name in which country?
2. True or False: This dog is, but Aberdeen Angus beef is not (polled).
3. Identify the Aberdeen Angus Beef gene responsible for its tenderness:
4. Which world-renowned shoe production company uses Aberdeen Angus cattle leather for its red and black quality? (I do know that this is completely farfetched, deal with it!)
5. Lady Gaga knows which cut she is, which cut are you?
Clearly I need to make like a fairytale character and stay far far away from beef and keep to my super informative wine writing. Ah, Zorgfliet did sponsor the wines which seemed to subtly compliment the beef with its very delicate undertone of awesomeness.
One last thing, be sure to check out Café Dijon; the beef is served with a fish knife as the beef tends to falls apart like angel poo. No need to strain those elbows boys. Until next time, oor-en-uit!
