Shimmy Beach Club, South Africa’s premier venue and restaurant, has released its winter menu focusing on comfort food with strong Italian and Mediterranean influence. Expect traditional flavours presented in an unconventional way.
The new menu will be available in the restaurant from 13 May to the end of June 2015.
Humble ingredients will be turned into fantastic dishes that are warm and inviting for cosy winter evenings. Top quality local ingredients are sourced for fragrant meals like Lamb Shank pot pie with Candied Butternut; or the Oxtail Tortellini with Pumpkin Puree and Sage BeurreNoisette.
There are several surprises on the dessert list such as Guava Cheesecake, with Macadamia crust, Peanut Butter ice-cream and strawberries in lime-stock; or the Honey Pistachio Panna Cotta with figs. Those following a Banting diet, can look forward to a sushi or pizza option.
Executive Chef Adrian Cook’s menu is influenced by his favourite country Italy, and the many years spent cooking in Italian kitchens.
Says Cook, “winter is a time for warmth and family, best enjoyed with a glass of wine and a superb, cosy meal, we’ll focus on top quality, local ingredients to create hearty meals with robust flavour.”
