We sat down with Executive Chef Johan Stander and asked him about this year’s Summer menu.
“I think for this menu as with the previous menus the inspiration is the season itself. I am not sure of many people who can resist fresh fruits in Summer. Summer is also Christmas time, I always use inspiration from my childhood, for example our raspberry and white chocolate dessert is a take on my Mother’s trifle, which is ever present each Christmas.
The watermelon salad is inspired by my Father’s obsession with this fruit during December. The whole Boland in the Summer time is magical; we are spoilt with the abundance of fruits. I feel that the watermelon, spanspek and paw paw salad honour this.
We hope you have the opportunity to come and join us; it really is a special time of the year with everyone in the holiday spirit – it is the time of year for relaxing with loved ones and enjoying good food and of course some Glen Carlou wine.”
