Spectacular, ethereal, delicate and complex, the new Asian-inspired menu at La Petite Colombe is a tour de force.

Following an inspirational trip to Japan, powerhouse trio John Norris-Rogers, Scot Kirton and James Gaag, the acclaimed chefs of La Petite Colombe in Franschhoek, have launched a new Asian-inspired 10-course set menu.

The new menu follows a recent trip of the three chefs to Asia and is greatly influenced by their experiences while travelling.

Our trip overseas was extremely inspiring and very informative all at the same time. To step out into different places and experience different cuisines is something so important for a chef as it gives you more insight as to what is around you,” comments head chef John.

A celebration of simplicity, the new menu aims to strip back whatever is unnecessary on a dish, whilst at the same time, ensuring that maximum flavour is delivered.

Even though the new menu is Asian inspired, it is still very much seeped in South African heritage and you can expect ingredients such as smoked snoek, pickled fish and Cape Malay spices served amongst traditional Asian ingredients such as katsuobushi (dried, fermented and smoked tuna), chawanmushi, (a Japanese egg custard dish) and the chefs’ take on ramen.

Diners will also be treated to a sake cocktail, inspired by the tradition of starting a Japanese meal with sake, in the Zen garden on arrival.

The 10 course set menu costs R1450 with an addition of R990 if the wine pairing is included.

The full ‘Chefs Experience’ lunch menu is R795 with an addition of R695 if the wine pairing is included.
