Date: 22 February
Venue: Longridge Wine Estate
For an unforgettable evening under balmy African skies, join the Longridge Langtafel for an extraordinary dining experience. The elegant table will be set in the lush, organic gardens of Longridge wine estate and is the culmination of the farm’s 175th anniversary festivities, while also celebrating the current harvest season.
Experience the magic and romance of dining by candle light under the star-studded skies with a sublime five-course menu paired with award-winning Longridge wines, live music, magnificent views of the Cape Peninsula and an incredible ambience.
For a fine dining experience par excellence, five courses of magnificently created dishes showcasing the finest seasonal produce will be exquisitely paired with some of the greatest estate wines from the Longridge cellar.
On arrival, guests can enjoy Truffle Gin, Longridge bubbly or a craft beer with delectable hors d’hoeuvres such as wild mushroom and truffle croquettes, oysters with Rozendal fynbos vinegar and cauliflower fritters with horseradish dip served from stations set up in the restaurant area.
As guests move to the langtafel (long table), they can further indulge in Pinot Noir-seared venison paired with the Pinot Noir-like Longridge Pinotage and traditional federweisser onion & gruyere tarts with a hint of cumin.
To continue this memorable culinary journey, guests can enjoy free range Hill Beatrix Buche de Chevre, spiced Chenin-poached pear served on savoury granola with a buchu vinaigrette paired with the Emily – a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend.
The second course features three colours cured local fish dressed with charred green apple, burnt apple mayonnaise, pickled organic beetroot from the Longridge garden, curry oil and summer onions. This fresh and zesty dish will be complemented by the Longridge Chenin Blanc.
The main course celebrates slow food at its best with an 18-hour low roasted organic aged sirloin, served medium rare with braised beef short rib, a bone marrow salsa, roasted garlic and olive oil mash and grilled tender stem broccoli and roasted carrot. This course will be accompanied by the elegant Longridge Cabernet Sauvignon, a magnificent Bordeaux blend that is one of the flagship wines from the highly acclaimed Longridge cellar.
A decadent dark chocolate terrine with a vibrant mango jelly, chocolate caramels, compressed fruits and meringues beautifully paired with the incredible Longridge Edelgoud create a sublime sweet finale, before the cheeseboards are served.
