Tantalize your taste buds and take your love of chocolate to a new level at RiverBend Lodge. Executive chef Adriaan held a cooking demonstration for guests and showed them how to make a fabulous chocolate mousse cake with hand-made chocolate truffles.
Fun was had by all as chef Adriaan shared his recipes, cooking techniques and tips to make the perfect chocolate mousse cake for a dinner party.
The demonstration was held on our western veranda over looking the waterhole. After the demonstration guests sipped on refreshing ice tea and enjoyed smoked salmon & onion marmalade quiche, cucumber sandwiches, cheese platters and the decadent chocolate mousse cake that they just learned how to make.
Guests were then treated to a game drive and spent time with our herd of elephants as the splashed around the waterhole spraying water everywhere.
Cooking demonstrations will become a regular event at RiverBend Lodge.
