The last cluny trust fund raiser was the polar plunge earlier this year … mid winter in fact! A bunch of madcap people diving into and swimming the Arpa dam near Clarens in all but sub zero water, all in the interests of superb cause … Cluny Animal Trust

Well guess what … Potjie on the Clarens square makes a lot more sense. Nice warm sun … pot of pork belly brewing on the fire and a glass of the good ol’ red stuff in hand … once again all in the interests of superb cause … Cluny Animal Trust.

… Well … not quite on the square. In fact just a tad off the square … over the road on the lawn around Annel’s shop and the Old Stone Bottle Store in fact. Lots of hungry people turned up and a bunch of very talented and enthusiastic potjie chefs to tease the taste buds of all and sundry.

“By the way Katy … your lamb was great … but I had to be true to myself and must be honest … I gave yours second place. Reality is I’m lamb addict from the feet up but … eurm … dont know if I should own up to this … Eurmmmm … dare I own up? yeah OK … I gave first place to the goat! … who would’ve thought? Not because your lamb was bad … but the goat was spectacular.
