Societi Bistro – Tour Through France Review

With the oldest house on Orange Street being its home, Societi Bistro boasts three fireplaces, wooden floors, exposed brick walls and unobtrusive service.


For the ninth year running Societi Bistro is bringing the best of Culinaire de France to Cape Town with its “Tour Through France”– a series of ten regionally inspired menus over ten weeks, in conjunction with ten exceptional local wines.

“France”– food immediately springs to mind at the mere mention – from ripe camembert, to Pot-au-feu, mouth-watering pâtissèrie and vintage champagne, to mention but a few. This cuisine is imbued with a mystique that is integral to the French way of life. Our favourite celebrity chef, Pete Goffe-Wood reviews one of Societi Bistro’s Tour Through France evenings.

Paris has always been the culinary centre, but the “gastronomic map” of France reveals the breadth and variety of its kitchens, a journey through which becomes a voyage among tastes, trends and traditions. French food is a regionally based cuisine and many French dishes are named after their place of origin from salade Lyonnaise to quiche Lorraine. When travelling through France, regional differences become very apparent. This is largely as a result of a strong food tradition and the utmost respect for regional produce in the height of its season.

The French menus has been thoughtfully composed around what is seasonal and available in the markets locally and adapted from the traditional recipes accordingly. Expect slow-cooked classics such as Cassoulet and Boeuf à la Bourguignon as well as lighter dishes as we move into Spring. Each Wednesday, will see the launch of a new three-course menu, paired with an exceptional local wine. The journey starts in the centre of it all; Bookings are essential on +27 21 42 42 100.
