On Wednesday, 28 February, the table will once again be set for the annual Longridge Langtafel – a magical fine dining experience under star-lit African skies. This unforgettable open-air dinner takes place in the magnificent gardens of this Stellenbosch wine estate, with breath-taking views across the Cape Peninsula.
Each dish on the sublime four-course menu has been paired with world-class wines handpicked by cellar master Jasper Raats. Live music in the candle-lit surrounds adds to the enchanted atmosphere.
Arrive at 18h00 to watch the spectacular sunset behind Table Mountain with a glass of bubbly and tasty canapés such oysters with jalapeno dressing, sous vide farm vegetables with dips and mini vetkoek filled with springbok shank.
The starter of organic aubergine and garden vegetable cannelloni with Buffalo Ridge yoghurt and a nasturtium dressing will be served with the stunning Driefontein Sauvignon Blanc. For the main course, charcoal-grilled free range beef fillet with bone marrow, celeriac and Brussels sprouts will be paired with the magnificent 2015 Longridge Cabernet Sauvignon.
This will be followed by a delectable cheese board featuring Dalewood Boland fromage, honey-coated pine nuts, puffed wheat and pickles accompanied by the 2015 Ou Steen Chenin Blanc. For the sweet grand finale, guests can indulge in traditional homemade milk tart with honey tuile perfectly complemented by the Longridge Edelgoud, a sensational dessert wine.
To bring the evening to a close, petit fours will be served with coffee.
