When winter rolls in, there can be few better places for a wholesome and heart-warming culinary experience than where true country hospitality begins.
The restaurant at WAVERLEY HILLS, celebrates the return of cosiness this winter with a new, fired-up menu and a dedicated, five-course food and wine pairing menu, to tantalise your taste buds.
Just 90 minutes from Cape Town in the Witzenberg Valley, Waverley Hills is renowned for producing premium organic wines and farming sustainability with innovative practices. Its restaurant follows suit, being a top local favourite thanks to its chic, country style and views over vineyards, orchards and farmlands. The venue’s twin fireplaces and deep leather couches makes it especially popular as a winter meal-stop for families out to see the snow on surrounding peaks.
Matching this landscape spectacular, chef Francois du Toit has set his own inspiration aflame in the kitchen and produced an enticing food and wine pairing menu that’ll have you linger even longer this winter.
Guests may expect see dishes such as wild mushrooms served with parmesan custard cream and a whisper of truffle paired with the Waverley Hills Chardonnay and Prawns fried with spiced paprika, garlic and parsley served with fresh ciabatta and paired with the Waverley Hill Cabernet Sauvignon – No Added Sulphites on the food and wine pairing menu.
No winter menu is complete without pork belly and Chef Francois has prepared his with twice-cooked; pork neck, honeycomb, a bacon jus and lemon pickled apple – all served on a bed of pearl couscous and paired with the Waverley Hills Grenache Noir. The beef offering is available as steak served with marrow-mushroom ketchup, roast truffle-flavoured baby onions and potato cream paired with the Waverley Hills Shiraz Mourvedre Viognier.
Dessert will be the special of the day and paired accordingly.
This five-course food and wine pairing menu is available until the end of Spring 2019 and is priced at R395.00 per person. Reservations are required a week in advance.
Waverley Hills’ restaurant, which is fully licensed, is open six days a week for breakfast and lunch, and twice for dinners on Wednesdays and Fridays.
