While some things combine as perfectly as strawberries and cream or winter and wellington boots; other combinations fail as miserably as a snake and sandals, long hair and a candle flame or computer geek and a power failure. Experience a fusion worthy of culinary knighthood with today’s Groupon: two roasted duck main meals with ginger sauce and baby potatoes for R135 at Sel et Poivre,
Speaking of fusion, Sel et Poivre is one of a kind when it comes to unconventional culinary combinations. Under the expert direction of Chef Coco Reinarhz, Sel et Poivre’s menu is a work of art combining classic French cuisine with the expressive flavours of African food in a modern and sophisticated manner. Said to be at the forefront of the African culinary renaissance, Chef Coco Reinarhz’s romantic dishes are inspired by his training in the art of French cooking and his love for the aromatic flavours and vibrant combinations in African food – creating a unique style of Afro-fusion.
If the idea of ice-cream and toffee sauce thrills you – tell your taste-buds to hold on for dear life because the combination of tender roasted duck with spicy ginger sauce and bountiful baby potatoes will blow them away. Cooked the only way Chef knows how – to perfection – the rich flavours of the duck combined with the aromatic spice of the ginger creates an experience not unlike meeting your soul mate or flying through the night sky on a unicorn.
Decorated in rich earthy colours that give the restaurant an understated yet classically elegant feel, the décor is to be enjoyed as much as the food. The menu comes with wine-pairing suggestions, so don’t forget to take a peek at Sel et Poivre’s impressive wine list to complement your meal.
