POTJIEKOS COMPETITION AT PEARL VALLEY

In true South African tradition, over 160 residents of Val de Vie Estate enjoyed our second annual potjiekos competition, hosted in the Pearl Valley Boma. While residents and friends huddled around 19 fires, preparing their favourite potjie recipe, children delighted in exploring the wide-open spaces on the estate.
