Chef Johan is coming up to his two year anniversary as Head Chef and he and his team have once again put together a delicious Summer menu which screams of freshness. He has created a lovely fennel and peach salad which has orange, a crumbed goats cheese mousse with a pernod and poppy dressing which pairs so well with our newly released 2014 Sauvignon Blanc. It is not often that we repeat a dish, however we are returning the ‘study of tomatoes’ as we believe it is one of the best examples of how to use this summer fruit. It comes with an olive oil poached roma tomato, confit cherry tomato, tomato sorbet, basil pesto, crumbed goats cheese and the most delicious tomato water – we have paired this with our richly textured 2013 Unwooded Chardonnay made in our Nomblot, egg shaped concrete fermenters.
For the mains I think it will be hard to move beyond the ever popular pork belly. Chef Johan has accompanied this with charred spring onions, a corn and chilli salsa, broccoli puree and a lime vinaigrette. There is also a lovely line fish dish with a seared scallop, preserved grapes, shaved cauliflower, light curry vinaigrette and steamed jasmine rice served with the 2013 Unwooded Chardonnay.
This Summer Menu will run until the first week of Autumn.
