WHEN they bought the Red Apple in January 2017 Con and Llewell Viljoen considered changing the name, but decided to retain the heritage of the establishment and to revitalise the small coffee shop and eatery and create a thriving restaurant at Boesmansriviermond, just off the R72, near Kenton-on-Sea. The Red Apple Emporium has seen the Viljoens introduce six new menus this past year, sell more than 300 paintings and move their tables and chairs probably a thousand times around already, according to Con. Over their first year in operation staff has come and gone along with the season, but what remains constant is the personal high touch manner in which they run their business, “Franchises run on efficient systems, our place runs on personal relationships, high touch, warmth, care and a real desire to please. Llewell knows everybody’s names, their aches and pains and dogs’ names,” said Con, while he sweats it out in the kitchen, training, baking, grilling, experimenting, inventing and grilling his way around, demanding per fection. The Red Apple Emporium serves the best Italian coffee, Lavazza according to Con, and the best authentic Italian pizzas based on Con’s tried and tested pizza recipe. They have a great choice of breakfasts, always with perfectly cooked eggs, gourmet burgers to be proud off and a selection of light meals and grills. Friday night is steakhouse-themed, with what the couple say are the greatest steaks around; matured, grilled and served unlike any other, from rib-eye, sirloin, rump and fillet. Ribs, schnitzels and Portuguese Mozambican spiced, basted and flame grilled chicken. Their newly introduced Sunday carvery and buffet is a hit. Salad valley, soups and fresh bread for starters, with mains a choice of whole roasted sirloin, pork belly with perfect crackling, roast chicken, three veggies, roast potatoes and fluffy rice with a choice of chicken or fragrant lamb curry, sambals, chutneys and sauces to accompany. Sweets are always decadent with two saucy baked puddings, two luxury ice creams with chocolate ganache and fresh seasonal fruit platters. Including a freshly brewed coffee to finish, and all this is just R149 or kids under 10, R75, or select from the kids menu. The Viljoens look forward to welcoming you at Red Apple Emporium’s birthday bash on Saturday March 17.

March 15, 2018 ADVERTISING / NEWSDESK: (046) 624 4356 Find us on Facebook Talk of the Town 9 Piping hot recital awakens the senses Rev Creille livens up drowsy Sunday with organ mastery LOUISE KNOWLES THE Reverend Noël-Jean Creille presented an organ recital at the St Pa u l ’s Anglican Church on a hot, drowsy Sunday af ternoon. With the light falling on the stained glass windows, birds on the roof piping their own music and a warm summer breeze blowing through the open windows, it was the perfect setting for organ music. The clergyman has been playing the organ in church since about the age of 13, according to a member of the congregation, David Foulkes. Creille grew up in East London and has recently settled in Port Alfred. He has been giving organ recitals for about three years to friends who know him and his music from his days in Calitzdorp and Graaff-Reinet. The music he chose to play had Lent as theme. Creille chose music from Johann Sebastian Bach (Birthday C a n t at a ) and two works by his near contemporar y George Frederick Handel (the beautiful Minuet from his opera Berenice and a vibrant excerpt from his Samson o r at o r i o ) . Handel was born in Germany before moving to Italy and then later England where he influenced many of his contemporaries with his vibrant Italian-style opera. First, Creille played three masters under Handel, William Boyce, Samuel Sebastian Wesley and the blind organist John Stanley. Next up was the magnificent Sanctus from Mozar t’s Mass in E-flat major, followed by the quietly meditative Pilgrim’s Chorus from Richard Wagner’s Ta n n h ä u s e r opera. Creille said that the pilgrims’ joy and anticipation to be home again when they came in sight of Jerusalem , are comparable to those fasting at Lent. He also sang a text from Cardinal John Henry Newman. His final piece was one of his own compositions. Local pianist Lorna Els, who attended the recital, had nothing but praise for Creille’s choice of music, pedal-work, intonation, musical expression and singing voice. “I would love to hear him play on a big pipe organ,” she said. There was an offertory and a visitor’s book for the 31-strong audience to add to. Creille will be giving another recital on Palm Sunday and present music from the French organ repertoire the following S u n d ay.

About 30 representatives of the building sector and pub regulars attended the first evening last week. Snacks and discounted drinks were sponsored by a local building supplier. André Swanepoel, managing director of the Swanepoel Group, owners of Bushman’s Build It, was the first speaker in a series of short talks and networking evenings to be presented on the first Thursday of every month. The family is the essence of the home JUDY and I have four generations of my son’s family arrive today from the Netherlands, for a three week st ay ! We are so excited. We are working flat out to make sure the garden looks great (the recent rains helped a lot), the house is “spick and span” and we have the right configuration of beds to accommodate everyone. We will be ready for them. We feel so privileged that our children want to share our home with their friends and family. We are looking forward to cooking together, getting to know the family better and share our plans for the future. Everything seems possible when we are together. It reminds me of a quote by Churchill: “Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch before you an MYHOME ... with Simon Oliver ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” This quote is so appropriate for the work we do on our homes. Each time we make an improvement we seem to notice something else that needs fixing or improving. It may be an opportunity to just experiment. Whatever the reason, you have satisfaction of stretching yourself, feeling the satisfaction of a job well done. The more we put into our home the more it will reward you. I look forward to hearing what you do to keep your home fresh and how it rewards you. Please contact me on simon.oliver@seeff.com or 082-653-5643.
