About Alfresco Deli:
To add to the wine experience, Joubert-Tradauw Wingerde en Kelder boasts the much-loved Alfresco Deli, which specialises in Klein Karoo tapas.
Once a humble, tin-roofed dwelling, the Deli has been transformed into a Mediterranean-style farm kitchen with rustic décor and an inside fireplace. Guests can dine outdoors, weather permitting, in true al fresco style under the vine-covered veranda (“afdak”), overlooking the farm, the majestic Tradouw Valley and the Langeberge.
The R62 Alfresco Deli is renowned for its platters, which include Klein Karoo tapas comprising fruits from the farms such as fresh figs, nectarines, Kakamas peaches, plums and pears served with cranberries, nuts, sunflower seeds and mint; rosemary and lemon chicken with a hint of soy; a small bobotie with onion relish, stewed fruit and almonds; patat with honey and cinnamon & orange zest; beetroot with feta and herbs; tzatsiki with pumpkin seeds and peppadews; home-baked breads stuffed with olives and nutty seed loaves browned with molasses. Home-made offerings include tapenade, onion relish, balsamic reduction, fig paté, pesto, fragrant apricot jam and tomato chilli jam.
Authentic Klein Karoo foods like ostrich with a cranberry onion relish and camembert; jerseyfillet or a burger on ciabbata with brinjals and buttenut shavings, dutch cheese and a home-made tomato sauce.
The to-die-for French chocolate cake is served with a luscious green fig AND a delicate lemon- meringue cheese cake with a cranberry compote.
