Savoring South African Cuisine at a Stunning Venue

In preparation for Heritage Day, The Bistro at Brookdale Estate in Paarl has prepared a unique menu crafted by Chef Gary Coetzee. From September 19th to 24th, patrons can indulge in a selection of traditional South African dishes, accompanied by a complimentary glass of Brookdale’s Mason Road wine. This magnificent event takes place in the estate’s cellar, creating an exquisite contemporary Paarl Winelands dining experience.

The Bistro at Brookdale boasts a modern design and offers both indoor and outdoor seating options. The spacious terrace offers breathtaking views of the lush vineyards, creating a tranquil ambiance without the distraction of other structures. This awe-inspiring setting perfectly captures the beauty of picturesque South Africa.

A Menu Highlighting South African Flavors and Dishes

The Heritage Day menu features an assortment of flavors and dishes. A vegan main course option consists of a potato, spinach, and feta pie, served with a chickpea, avocado, and sun-dried tomato salad. Alternatively, patrons can savor the hearty dombolo and lamb stew with baby vegetables, artfully paired with Brookdale’s recently released Mason Road GSM – a blend of grenache, syrah, cinsault, and petit syrah.

The menu also offers lighter options such as biltong soup with a mature cheddar cheese straw or a modern twist on bobotie, presented in a crispy rice taco with egg custard, spiced prune chutney, and tomato salsa. Classic side dishes like chakalaka, pap and smoor, or braai mielie with harissa aioli and coconut can accompany any meal.

For dessert, Chef Gary presents a delightful combination named “Milk Tart meets Hertzoggie.” This delicious creation features a coconut and cinnamon custard tart with apricot gel, honey and apricot gelato, and a sprinkle of cinnamon crumb. Guests who prefer savory options can enjoy a selection of South African cheeses, including Cremezola, Gay’s Prince Albert, Belnori Ash Log, and Dalewood Brie, skillfully paired with a glass of the limited-release Mason Road Cap Classique.
