Popcorn risotto and rooibos caramelized pearl onion sorbet

ENTRÉE

Homemade duck sausage, burnt butter and thyme potato mash, with asian greens and oriental reduction

MAIN

Slowly cooked ox tail served with oven roasted baby vegetables and tempura.
paired with
A full-bodied wine overflowing with expression and flavour. Six months of French oak add fullness and complexity, while the minerality and stone fruit acidity provide a long lasting after taste.

DESSERT

Earl Grey Baked bread and butter pudding with an apricot and honey semi fredo and a lightly spiced chocolate panna cotta.
paired with
An unctuous wine that entices you from the first sniff to the long after taste of the last drop. Chenin Blanc made from old vines, picked early then left to dry for two weeks. The dried bunches are then pressed……(page two missing)

Dried and old? Maybe.
Permission now to enjoy pudding, honey,
apricots and chocolate
but only lightly spiced.
(our digestions are delicate).
What awaits us at the end?
Who knows?
