Sensory summer fare at The Restaurant

Whether dining in the elegant interior or soaking up the sun under the oaks in the Sculpture Garden, a visit to Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate is a sensory joy for the eyes and palate.
 
Inspired by the time honoured practices and precision of French cuisine, combined with bold flavours of Asia and locally sourced ingredients, Executive Chef, Darren Badenhorst, and his team ensure that each meal is perfection on a plate, down to the last micro herb.
 
Choose the three-course à la carte lunch, or make it an evening affair with a six-course dinner. With Grande Provence wine recommendations by Cellarmaster, Matthew van Heerden, you can expect a memorable experience.

Chef Darren does not like to be rushed, so taking hours over each carefully prepared dish is his forte. His 18-hour pork belly is one of his signature starters, while dinner guests can opt for his rabbit and confit pulled duck terrine

Carnivores are spoilt for choice between hot smoked blesbok shank with a toasted coriander crunch, and slow braised beef short rib served with Asian-style pickled mustard and exotic mushrooms for mains. Adding a twist of Asian inspired flavours to excite the palate is one of Chef Darren’s specialties.

Fish lovers will find plenty to tuck into from masala-cured salmon served with a sushi rice dumpling and pickled cucumber, and local tuna yukhoe for starters. For mains, there is a choice between chimichurri-baked local hake served with a celeriac and summer apple rémoulade, and farmed local cob with vanilla and tonka squid ink risotto, Hermanus white mussel and harissa baby squid.

For vegetarians, there is a delicious local oyster mushroom with salt cured BBQ cauliflower, beetroot carpaccio, hay-smoked organic carrots, and butter bean and cauliflower purée. The dinner menu includes an asparagus garden of smoked pea arancini with Danish feta mousse, pea sprout salad and pickled mushrooms.

Dessert is absolute seduction, from caramelised white chocolate pot au crème, to the salted and bitter chocolate golden semi-sphere tasting plate, and a summer berry “ice cream sandwich”.

The cheese course comprising a parcel of baked French brie, pancetta crisp, candied walnuts and sour cream semi-freddo panna cotta mousse brings this culinary adventure to a seductive close.
