Bosjes, the place of where Art and Sophistication came to marry…and they may as well have done it in the iconic Chapel. I recently enjoyed the gorgeous newly opened Teetuin where the finest MCC and hand held sweet treats amalgamate into an afternoon of tranquility and reflection with loved ones.
With Head Chef Kim Cox overlooking the deliciously fresher baked treats at the Teetuin, I was excited to see what her and her team of Chefs had in store at the breathtakingly beautiful Bosjes Kombuis (kitchen translated into English.)
The gorgeous high ceilings, modern steel and wooden textures and the sprawling lawns offer a sophisticated homely yet old world feeling to the spectacular that is Bosjes.
South African Master Chef Judge Pete Geoff-Wood and Head Chef Kim Cox has collaborated on a Bistro Style Menu that is sure to suit every palate. Relaxed food with a enlightened twist offers exotic flavours with the pairing of local wines that the Breedekloof Valley has seem to have perfected.
Head Chef Kim Cox is seen below with the famous wall. ‘The outside wall features a Delft-inspired mural designed by Cape Town-based artists Lucie de Moyencourt and Michael Chandler. The Bosjes Tree of Life is made up of 366 tiles and depicts the fauna and flora of the farm and its surroundings.” is written on the website and it gives the iconic Artistic landmark more of an appeal.
The menu offers familiar flavours that are perfected. Some of the menu items include the following.
Starting off with freshly made Soup of the day, Caesar salad with a Huguenot Crumble, Franschhoek Trout Fish Cakes, or the delectable Farm Platter for 2 which offers a plowman type feast of breads, preserves, meats and cheeses to enjoy.
Main course gets little more serious with Karoo Lamb Cutlets, Homemade pasta Verde, Pan fried Sea Bass and the famous Sticky Asian Pork Belly to name a few.
Of course you would have not fully rounded off your meal if you skip the Bosjes desserts and do they have something special for you. Dark Chocolate tore with Peanut Butter Ice Cream…do I need to go on?!
The restaurant is well loved by Breedekloof locals, wine lovers, art enthusiasts and the Cape Townian adventure seeker often on the road to see whats new and happening in and around our gorgeous city. An hour drive from Cape Town means you will be sipping on a glass of the Breedkloof’s finest while posing in front too the iconic Blue Wall for photographs in no time.
Wednesday to Sunday between 10h00 – 16h00
Although I was invited to experience this with a group of Media, all of the opinions are my own. The photographs have been taken by myself to showcase the venue and meal through my eyes. I look forward to returning.
