Gourmet Gold at The Cellars-Hohenort this Mother’s Day

Words: Crush

Show your love and appreciation on Mother’s Day by spoiling mom with either a delectable 3-course lunch on Sunday 14 May 2023, or an indulgent Mother’s Day High Tea, available at The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa throughout the Mother’s Day weekend (12-14 May).

Mother’s Day Lunch at The Cellars-Hohenort

Served in the Conservatory restaurant, the lunch feast is inspired by flowers – the epitome of femininity and presented as a token of love and appreciation.

The menu begins with a choice between Klein Karoo ostrich with beetroot, peppered sorghum and rose petal jam; or Heirloom tomato tartare with pickled mustard, basil, nasturtium pesto, cranberry oil and buckwheat tuile.

Mains offer a trifecta of delicious choices, including Dry-aged beef sirloin with wild garlic potato fondant, grilled artichoke hearts, coconut-lavender marshmallow and red grape; Red drum sea bass with white truffle pommes dauphine, cauliflower and zucchini blossom salad; or Grilled cauliflower with white bean & almond velouté, African red pepper pesto, sunchoke and salsa verde.

Ending things on a sweet and memorable note, diners can opt for the Hibiscus mille-feuille or Camomile panna cotta.


Mother’s Day High Tea experience

The Cellars-Hohenort’s decadent Mother’s Day High Tea is served over four courses and begins with a selection of Tea Sandwiches; followed by a second savoury course of Duck larb & lavender chilli jam; Shredded lamb slider and minted tzatziki; Stuffed zucchini blossom and coriander truffle pesto; Oak-smoked chicken croquette and nasturtium aïoli; and Artichoke arancini with grapefruit. Buttery Scones with hibiscus jam and Chantilly cream are the next highlight; before the grand finale of an irresistible selection of pâtissières.

The High Tea comes with a choice of eleven loose-leaf teas. Each tea blend is meticulously curated by Master Tea Blender, Mingwei Tsai, who has also created a unique Cellars-Hohenort Blend of Nigiro tea, incorporating the spicy fragrance and bronze/apricot colour of the Liz McGrath Rose.

Before or after lunch, take Mom for a stroll around the iconic gardens of the hotel, which spread over nine acres, containing a myriad of delights, from trees dating back 300 years to structured gardens with beautiful water features and ponds.
