As spring blossoms in all its glory, Café Fleur, nestled in the lush gardens of the enchanting Vergelegen wine estate in Somerset West, is ready to tantalize your taste buds with its eagerly anticipated spring menu. To make your dining experience even more exquisite, they’re offering a special deal: guests can enjoy a complimentary glass of Vergelegen bubbly or Sauvignon Blanc to accompany their main course, a delightful offer available until Sunday, 29 October.
The Culinary Artistry of Chef Michelle Barry
The mastermind behind these culinary creations is none other than Chef Michelle Barry and her talented team. Drawing inspiration from bountiful local ingredients and the centuries-old culinary traditions of France, they’ve crafted a menu that’s not only a feast for your taste buds but also a work of art in presentation.
The spring menu boasts a selection of sublime starters. From the briny goodness of West Coast oysters to the rich and flavorful duck terrine, the delicate tuna tartare, and the delightful soft shell crab and prawns, each plate is a masterpiece designed to tantalize your taste buds and set the stage for an exceptional meal.
Magical Main Courses
The main courses celebrate the arrival of spring with a symphony of flavors. You can savor the succulent rack of lamb, enjoy perfectly grilled line fish, relish the crispy duck breast, or indulge in the fresh trout. These dishes are a celebration of seasonal ingredients and culinary finesse.
For our vegan diners, Café Fleur has crafted a selection of mouthwatering options. The artichoke and herb terrine, the butternut Wellington, and the mango and granadilla sorbet combine exquisite taste with stunning presentation, proving that plant-based dining can be a work of art.
No meal is complete without a sweet finish, and Café Fleur has got you covered. The dessert offerings include a delectable raspberry tartlet, crème brûlée with strawberry consommé, and a baked chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, all featuring fresh fruits that encapsulate the essence of spring.
Exceptional Wine Pairings
Pairing fine wines with exquisite dishes is an art form at Café Fleur. Each dish is perfectly complemented by wines from Vergelegen’s cellar, along with a thoughtfully curated selection of international wines. The result is an unforgettable dining experience that elevates your taste buds.
