strauss & co to offer the tasso foundation collection of important south african

Strauss & Co is delighted to announce that its forthcoming North/South sale (8-12 November 2020) will include a session exclusively devoted to the holdings of the Tasso Foundation Collection of important South African art assembled by the late Italian-born Giulio Bertrand, best known to South Africans for his transformative activities at Morgenster Estate in Somerset West.

In 2005 Ed Saunders arrived in Cape Town with one mission in mind … to introduce Tapas to a South African market that had yet to experience this small-plate, sharing, Mediterranean way of eating. Ed opened Fork in Long Street in January 2006 and started a long journey of bringing the small plate concept of food to life. This worked well with the female population but it was a little more difficult to convince the local male community, used to their “meat and potatoes” staple meals! Ed would be met with death stares when he arrived at the table with his pronounced English accent, serving small plates of food and declaring with a cheeky grin … ‘and now you need to share it’! Slowly but surely people came around to the concept…
