Swimming is good for cooling down in the summer and broadening the shoulders and the pentathlon is just mind blowing. All said, the Olympics are a good way to keep yourself entertained, but one could imagine they wouldn’t taste very good – if you can imagine tasting a sport. Experience the tastier side of the Olympics with cuisine prepared by a member of SA Culinary Olympics team and get two Chalmar beef sirloins, braised short ribs, smoked mash and marrow ‘pops’ at deHugenot Estate for R100.
Fine-dining is more than just unpronounceable dishes on the menu and a snooty Maître d'. Proving this fact, dining at deHugenot is all the best parts of fine-dining with all the pretentious removed. With soothing grey walls and roaring fireplaces to keep your toes toasty in the chill of winter, the large dining room provides its own comfortable spin on formal dining. With better views of the Groot Drakenstein mountains than you’d find on a tourists post-card, it’s debatable which is more attractive – the elegantly presented food or the vista outside the window.
Not only is the food on your plate more fun to look at than a piece of abstract art, it’s also prepared with the freshest ingredients. Though fast-food might come with 78 sesame seeds on the bun and secret sauce, a bite of deHugenot’s herb crusted sirloin will ensure you never look at beef the same way again, be it burger or brisket. With braised short ribs, smoked mash and marrow pops to compliment the already gold-winning sirloin, the only downside of dining at deHugenot is the fact that your taste buds will probably mutiny the second they taste anything that’s not from Chef Tanja Kruger’s kitchen.
If you’re looking for a better way to impress your special friend than a mix-tape of nineties ballads, a night at deHugenot surrounded by the flickering flames and faced with a sirloin that will make your taste buds tap-dance is definitely the way to go.
