Winter Lunch by The Sea at The Twelve Apostles

Words: Jess Spiro

Fine dining restaurant Azure at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa has introduced a special winter ‘Lunch by the Sea’ menu, combining a delectable two-course lunch with a glass of top quality red or white wine and breathtaking views of the Atlantic. Available Mondays to Thursdays until 31 August 2016, the lunch offers an indulgent mid-week treat at only R295 per person, and can be enjoyed close to one of two warming fireplaces on chilly winter days. The lunch affords diners the perfect value-for-money opportunity to experience the award-winning cuisine of this world class establishment.

 Created by Executive Chef Christo Pretorius, guests may choose between a seafood, meat or vegetarian set menu, and can order either a starter and main course, main course and dessert, or even a starter and dessert. Those partial to pescatarian fare will relish the starter of baby calamari risotto in a tentsuyu broth, with crispy tentacles, creamed cauliflower, pickled sultanas and parmesan crumbs. Cauliflower risotto presents the vegetarian option, served with creamed cauliflower, charred florets, pickled sultanas, parmesan crumbs and herb truffle oil. Main course options include a succulent roast chicken breast with crispy chicken wing, liver parfait, salt baked celeriac, baby gem and toasted almond cream; or barbecued carrot with mung bean salad, baby carrots, salt baked celeriac, buttermilk curd and mint fluid gel for vegetarians. Both menus finish on a sweet note with a dessert melange of strawberry mille-feuille, strawberry pudding, white chocolate and strawberry sorbet. To complete this gourmet lunch experience, guests have a choice of a glass of Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2014 or Dombeya Boulder Road Shiraz 2012 to accompany their lunch. 

Reservations are advised and are available via the website.
