"After two days of wine tasting, it's time to relax at the boutique hotel, The Masters Lodge. Our private chef serves four courses of exquisite food, including a crayfish caught off the rocks at nearby Cape Kidnappers (visible from our bedroom) with a tomato capsicum coulis. ‘Food is like a good story,’ says the Chef. ‘There is build-up, a climax, and then you come out and find balance.”
