Recommended Wine Add-ons

Gourmand
Trizanne Signature Wines Sauvignon Blanc 2019 (R120)

This is how Trizanne Barnard, the winemaker describes her wine: Vibrant and fresh nose of crushed rocks, ripe pear, and passionfruit. Quite energetic on the palate which builds and has more profundity than one may first realise. Walks the tightrope between bracing Elim and Walker Bay freshness and ripe Stellenbosch fruit brilliantly. Finishes on a dry, clean, and very classy note.” Pairs perfectly with soft cheeses, especially goat’s cheese and camembert, tapenade, smoked fish, poached and sautéed white fish and seafood, rich food

Catherine Marshall on Sandstone Pinot Noir 2018 (R280)

Grapes for this wine were selected from four cool sites in the Elgin Valley. Pomegranate, cranberry, and red cherry flavours are supported by dry tannins for texture and complexity. Perfect for charcuterie and pates, foie gras, lean red meat, mushrooms, and cheeses like goat and Camembert.

Iconic
Klein Constantia Metis Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (R330)

What a stunner! Fresh citrus and nettle aromas on the nose. The palate is concentrated and full-bodied with a rich peppery and mineral mouthfeel, supported by balanced acidity, and flinty finish. Pairs perfectly with soft cheeses, especially goat’s cheese, and camembert, tapenade, smoked fish, poached and sautéed white fish and seafood, rich food.

Storm Vrede Pinot Noir 2017 (R560)

Hannes Storm has been named one of the world's greatest Pinot Noir producers by Tim Atkin MW. Vrede Pinot Noir hails from a steep, northeast-facing slope in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Packed with well-defined forest fruit flavours: mulberry and blueberries, mace, nutmeg, and cinnamon bark. It is a fuller-bodied expression of Pinot Noir, with fresh acidity and firm tannins. My absolute favourite! Perfect for charcuterie and pates, foie gras, lean red meat, mushrooms, and cheeses like goat and Camembert.

Description

Your Gourmet Hamper C will contain the following : 

1. Luke’s Beetroot tart (4 tarts)

My age old classic from the La Colombe days. 100% butter puff from my friend Mitzy, beetroot relish, sliced beetroot. Warm the tart in the oven for 5-10 mins at 160C, serve with the tapenade, a dollop of goat cheese mousse and a little side salad.

4. Crayfish and yuzu salad (250 gr)

These are East coast crays, nice and sweet. We make a yuzu mayo (Japanese citrus) which we dress over the crayfish and finish with Tobiko (Japanese flying fish roe). 

Serve this with sliced avocado and crusty bread.

5. Duck and pork belly country pate (200 gr)

I have been preparing this classic recipe for a number of years. When I worked in Korea, we used to have a French Bistro in the hotel I worked at and I served it there. I also had it on the winter specials when I was at La Colombe.

Serve this with the delicious country bread we have included in the hamper and offset the savoury French notes of the pate with our homemade apple chutney and perhaps a mixed leaf salad with a mustardy dressing. YUM!

6. Slow smoked Norwegian salmon fillet (200 gr)

We take fresh salmon we cure them in a citrus cure for 24 hours. We then slow smoke them for 12 hours in our home-made smoker.

You can serve this either sliced raw with the cucumber and dill compote, and horseradish crème fraiche or you could warm in in a little cream and serve over steamed asparagus with a warm starter.

7. Salt baked celeriac and truffle salad (250 gr)

Beautiful winter celeriac! We make a kind of paste with whipped egg whites and salt. We then bake them in their crust for 3-4 hours, Peel them and dice. We make a truffle mayo and add some crème fraiche. Some grated truffle.  Serve this with the country pate or have alone with crusty bread.

8. Braised lamb shank pie (4 each)

Lamb shoulder marinated for 24 hours in red wine and herbs. Slow braised for 6-8 hours and reduced to intensify flavour. Reheat this at 175C in the oven for approx. 35 mins or until nice and golden brown. Serve with buttered vegetables and rosemary and parmesan cream.

9. Rosemary and parmesan cream (200 gr)

Place in a small saucepan and warm over low heat, or alternatively heat in a microwave for 1 minute with the lid off. Serve with the navarin of lamb. 

11. Locally sourced line fish fillet (4 x 150g fillet)

Freshly caught and delivered to us on the day. Our fish is sourced from sustainable small scale local fisher man. To cook, we recommend pan frying, skin side down. Don’t cook the fish all the way through to keep it nice and moist.

12. Curried Jerusalem Artichoke Veloute (200 gr)

We caramelize Jerusalem artichokes in a pan, deglazed with white wine and combined with a mild curry velouté. This should be warmed up in a saucepan before eating and should be served with the locally sourced line fish.

13. Green Apple Atchar

The spiced condiment pairs very well with the curried artichoke velouté. 

14. “Joël Robuchon” mashed potato (250 gr

Joël Robuchon god rest his soul held the most amount of Michelin stars at any one time. He developed a recipe for mash potatoes that he became famous for whereby he slowly baked the potatoes over rock salt and then pushed them through a sieve whilst still warm. We add a lot of butter and thyme cream to this and season with Maldon salt. Put the potato mix in a small pan and heat slowly, mixing constantly until warm. Add a little milk or cream if needed. 

15. Black pepper and truffle “cafe au lait” (125 gr)

The first sauce I made in South Africa and to this day my most popular. A rich port based beef jus, brandy, black truffle and black pepper, finished with fresh cream. Serve with any steak! Reheat in a microwave with the lid off for 1 minute or until hot.

18. Assorted cheeses (goat/blue/camembert/sheep)

Pepe my friend from Kommetjie is a 3rd generation goat cheese maker. His goat cheese is just phenomenal and his passion for this is incredible.

20. Lukes' chocolate fondant (4 each)

70% cocoa chocolate, eggs, butter sugar. The beauty of the recipe is in its simplicity! Bake at 180C for 10 – 15 minutes. The top should have a thin crust on it and no longer be shiny before serving. Serve in the vessel with the vanilla Mascarpone or ice cream.

21. Tiramisu (4 each)

It’s a classic with a twist, I make a mascarpone mousse out of eggs, cream and bourbon. Finished with 80% dark chocolate grated on top. This adds a decadent touch. 

22. Pears poached in mulled wine (4 each)

Good red wine, spices a little brown sugar. Serve these with the chocolate fondant.
