The Spice Route Restaurant, situated next to the Fairview Wine and Cheese Farm in Paarl, explores the romance between spice, food and wine. The culinary voyage focuses on the Spice Route wines, with each meal carefully crafted and prepared to compliment them.
Chef Phillip Pretorius says, “We started this venture by first tasting each of the wines and then deciding on the appropriate food to be served with the wine. We systematically cut down the choices until we had the perfect match and then allowed our creativity to take over so that we could discover just how far it could take us.”
The menu includes exotic dishes such as slow roasted pork belly infused with five spice and served on Madagascar DV chocolate lentil salad, paired with Spice Route Pinotage or Spice Route Chakalaka.Tender roast rack of lamb on olives and pap served with seasonal baby vegetables, chakalaka dusted carrot chips, beetroot crackling, and five spice infused tomato reduction, paired with Spice Route Chakalaka or Spice Route Shiraz. And for dessert, duo of saffron and Pinotage poached pear on poppy seed cake and liquorice ice cream.
