6. Die Sederberge:  Muse van ‘n Meester   Repat 1 SABC 3 – Vrydag 21 Maart 2014 20h00-20h30

Terence stands below the cliffs of the picturesque Maalgat pool on the Driehoeksrivier and introduces the spectaucular serenity of the Cederberg, the area that has inspired artists for Generations. He also mentions that for this episode the two of them will be treating each other to experiences they believe will be enjoyed respectively. Paul bomb drops off the cliff face “this is Rough or Smooth!” into the pool and splashes him. Paul’s ‘treat’ is to take Terence shoe shopping in Wupperthal. Terence is horrified to see the horribly practical ‘vellies’ Paul has selected for him, but eventually finds an appropriately fabulous pair of boots. They make their way to the Cederberg wine estate, passing C Louis Leipoldt’s grave on the way, where they pay their respects to the legendary poet and food guru.  Next with winemaker and landowner David Nieuwoudt at Sanddrif they hit the wine tasting. After selecting their favourites, they are off again. Terence,in his new shoes, to the luxury of Bushmans Kloof, while Paul goes rock climbing. As the sun sets, while Terence drinks wine, he reads Leipoldt poetry to his blonde waiter at Bushman’s Kloof and his voice underscores Paul’s climb of the famous rock formations. The next day Paul hikes to BK from his cottage in Wuppertal. He comes across the Anatolian Sheepdog, and discusses the groundbreaking success that this particular hound has had in leopard conservation in the area. He picks some buchu for Terence’s hangover. So buchu, lamb and rosemary in hand,  he makes raw egg hangover cure for Terence who has just had a massage and lying by the pool. He doesn’t like Paul’s drink. Calls his blonde to make a buchu mojito. Having discovered a Leipoldt recipe for ‘Waterblommetjie Bredie’ Terence takes the meat and rosemary to Floris Smith, Bushman’s Kloof’s Executive Chef while Paul goes to get water blommetjies. Water blommetjie bredie put in picnic basket. Terence’s treat for Paul is a game to see the animals and tour of the San rock art depicting the game they’ve just seen. They depart in 4×4, and the episode ends with them drinking in the silence, tragedy and peace of the Cederberg, beneath one of the oldest and last surviving Cedar trees in the area, as they sip their Cederberg wine and tuck into the bredie.
