De Grendel's World Cup Pairing 2015 - South Africa VS USA
Round 5 - Wesnesday 7th October 2015
With the last match of the pool stages to determine who SA will meet in the quarters what better way to celebrate our opponents than making the most quintessential American food the Hamburger. Follow our very easy recipe to produce one of the greatest burgers that you have tasted and impress all your friends and family on match day. We have also included a beautiful Shiraz onion chutney recipe to enhance the perfect South African wine for this match our De Grendel Shiraz 2014. We believe that this wine is the perfect wine for this match as we feel the Springboks performance will be elegant but powerful just like our Shiraz 2014. Good luck to the Boks.
