Winter Taste Sensations at the Terra del Capo Antipasto Bar

Enjoy Winter Food at The Terra del Capo Antipasto Bar

I get a lot of people asking for restaurant recommendations, more especially this time of the year.  If you don’t mind driving to the Cape Winelands, this is one of the perfect spots to visit for hearty winter meals.

The Terra del Capo Antipasto Bar at Anthonij Rupert Wyne in Franschhoek has launched their 2017 winter menu, which features an assortment of delectable dishes. Included in the lineup are a handful of new winter meals as well as some signature favourites.

Inspired by regional produce from the Winelands visitors can choose from a selection winter soup recipes, winter recipes and cold Antipasti dishes, perfectly paired with wines from the Protea, L’Ormarins and Terra del Capo ranges.

A Fine Selection of Winter Meals

Cold selection choices include Smoked Burrata with Roasted Carrots, Pickled Beetroot, Candied Hazel Nuts and Nasturtium Leaves; Artichoke Pannacotta served with Pickled Mushrooms, Herbs and Croutons; or cured, estate-raised Angus Beef served with Wild Rocket, fermented Black Garlic and Squid Ink Aioli, Pine Nuts, Parmesan.

The hot winter food includes the popular crunchy Zucchini Fries with Garlic Aioli; ‘Skilpadjies’ – a South African favourite; and Braised Lamb Arancini, served with a homemade Tomato Chutney. The crisp fried Calamari with Parsley and Caper Aioli, as well as the tasty Salsiccia Meatballs, served in a Marinara Sauce are guaranteed to hit the spot!

My Favourite Winter Soup Recipes

This is great for getting out of the house with loved ones on a cold winter weekday or weekend to enjoy delicious winter food.  The adults can sip on some wine next to the cozy fire while enjoying satisfying winter soups.  Calamari, Skilpadjies, those Salciccia Meatballs and that homemade Tomato Chutney have my name written all over them.
