Of strawberry fields, prawn risotto & wine…

Today, Bianca Lee Coleman and I fled the gale force winds in Cape Town for a way calmer atmosphere 40 minutes away in Stellenbosch. First up was a spot of strawberry picking at Mooiberge, followed by a superb lunch at Terroir.

Spontaneity fuelled this day and I loved it!

Terroir restaurant was established in 2004. It’s situated on the family owned farm called Kleine Zalze, a century old estate beautifully positioned in the winelands, that produces award-winning wines, has a top notch golf course, a four star lodge and enticing walking and cycling routes that I can’t wait to try out sometime soon.

The cuisine at Terroir is outstanding, food theatre at its best, created by chef Michael Broughton. I’ll let the images and their captions speak for themselves. Once you’re done salivating, make a reservation and experience fine dining and excellent service (CTD: thank you Collette and Liehana) in a relaxed atmosphere under the oak trees.

Leave your banting obsession at the door because the tomato focaccia that accompanies a divine tapas selection is AMAZING!

And when you’re done indulging, take a stroll through the beautiful garden below the oak terrace and pretend to walk it all off..
