2021 marks the 100th Anniversary of General Re, the 175th Anniversary of the historical Cologne Re, and the 55th Anniversary of Gen Re South Africa.
In these extraordinary times, we savour the relationships that are at the core of our success. We did not get here alone and invite you to join us as we say Thank You with flowers and a fun and delicious Savour the Flavour experience.
A UNIQUE "SAVOUR THE FLAVOUR" EXPERIENCE CRAFTED ESPECIALLY TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU AND SHOW OUR APPRECIATION
As Gen Re turns 55 in South Africa, we celebrate your valued contribution to us through a unique Savour the Flavour experience, to share with your loved one in the comfort of your home.
Our hosts Karen Dudley (Chef) and Higgo Jacobs (Sommelier) have put together a superb menu and selection of wines and non-alcoholic celebratory drinks for this occasion.
In the delightful video below, they show us how to pull this all together, simply and deliciously. Watching them gives you the full Savour the Flavour experience. You can almost taste of the actual deliciousness we have curated for you.
“Life is too short for the arbitrary, the mediocre, the ‘nice’. If you are going to eat something, however simple, it must be all that it is meant to be. It must be essentially good”.
“Marrying food with wine can be tricky. Not only is it entirely personal, but it’s also fluid as our tastes and preferences change during the course of our lives”.
We will share with you a special celebratory package of recipe cards and all the ingredients for a simple and quick preparation of this four-course meal, along with the gorgeous wines and non-alcoholic drinks our sommelier has specially selected to pair with 4 of these 5 dishes.
See what’s coming your way in the photo gallery below – all the dishes, ingredients and gifts. Also watch the video episodes for each course above to see how to easily put it all together for your pleasure and enjoyment.
To enhance this experience, you will receive a personalised, signed copy of Karen’s book “Set A Table”, 4 stemless flute glasses and a beautiful KaryKase designed and produced especially as bespoke gifts for Gen Re’s anniversary year. To put your flute glasses to immediate use, we are also including a bottle of Charles Fox Reserve Rosé NV sparkling wine and a non-alcoholic sparkle alternative.
South Africa is part of the broader CUSAC* segment of Gen Re. We are celebrating these extraordinary milestones with bespoke originals of the flowers of the regions.
These flowers represent the synergies and ties that unite us and the diversity that enriches us.
