Gouda Pesto Sandwich Recipe | Plettenberg Bay



Ingredients for Spinach Pesto:

1 cup baby spinach leaves

1tbs olive oil

2tbs almonds



Directions for pesto:

Add all ingredient for pesto (food processor, blend until smooth, set aside)


Ingredients for sandwiches:

4 pieces sourdough


6 slices gouda (could mix gouda and mozzarella)

1/2 cup baby spinach with Rocket

Spinach pesto (prepared)




Directions for sandwiches:

Set out 4 slices of bread and butter the outside facing sides. On the inside of the 4 slices, add spinach pesto (about 3tbs per side), then top with 2 slices of gouda on half. Add 1/4 cup baby spinach & herb mix leaves, then place 1 piece of gouda on top, and place the remaining slice of bread on top (spinach pesto side down, butter side up).




Heat pan on medium heat, place sandwiches and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until it’s brown. Flip sandwiches and cook for 1-2 minutes on opposite side (this side will brown faster), remove. Cut in half and serve immediately!

Robberg Fine Foods Classic Beach Regatta

Start Date: 22 December, 2017
End Date: 24 December, 2017

The event is all set for the 22nd to the 24th December this year.

Date: 22 – 24 Dec 2017
Venue: Hobie Beach, Plett


As always it takes place from Plettenberg Bay’s sheltered Hobie Beach. The sight of a fleet of beautiful, multi-coloured sails in the Bay has become an integral part of Plett’s festive season and one remembered by many visitors and residents as far back as their childhoods.


Robberg Fine Foods will be the main sponsor of the event this year.


Traditionally sailors from all over South Africa come and take part in this fun regatta, amongst them a number of Hobie national and world champions! Watch as the boats race “round the cans” (a set of buoys in the bay) or do a long-haul race from the mouth of the Keurbooms lagoon all the way across to Robberg 5. While things may look calm from the beach, they’re anything but on the water as boats jockey for position on the start line and then race each other for line honours.


Hobie sailors are famously easy-going and friendly, and members of the public are welcome to come down to Hobie Beach and “meet the fleet” when the boats are on the beach. Who knows, you may like it so much it may be you out there next time!

Robberg Fine Foods | Feel Good Friday | Karin Kastern

Karin Kastern ORIGINAL

Meet Karin Kastern,
(Manager THE STORE)

Loves customer interaction and selling!

She enjoys saving the planet by; promoting the Zero Waster concept of “encouraging customers to bring their own containers and plastic/material bags for their fresh fish and takeaway products”


Material bags are sold made by ladies from an Upliftment Program in The Crags, a rural area near Plettenberg Bay. This program is headed up by Carole Levin, who makes sure the ladies have materials. Carole also does the Marketing and Sales of this great product. In this way, THE Store now no longer sells Plastic single use bags and encourages the sale of these cloth bags.


Other than her Zero Waste concept in THE STORE, Karin also makes ECO BRICKS from 2L Coke bottles. The concept is that all materials and items not recyclable are cut up and stuffed as tightly as possible into the used plastic bottles. A wooden spoon handle or a metal rod which fits the mouth of the bottle are used. The material is stuffed tightly, so that once full, the bottle will not buckle and bend if used as a BRICK in building.


Come in and see for yourself.
