MERRY CHIRSTMAS Babylonstoren


Recommendations and advance booking helped to get Christmas Eve lunch table at Babel Restaurant at Babylonstoren.

Babylonstoren is vineyard and winery on farm estate and one the the first farm-to-table restaurants. The Mediterranean climate allow them to grow just about everything they offer on their the menu. The grounds also house a bakery (bread with a head of garlic baked into...one of everything...please), tea house, a spa & farm hotel and the most beautiful gardens i have seen is a long time. Every stop has bowls of ice water with plums floating in them. Guests are encouraged to taste...they are in season.

My main focus being the food..

Starter was a RED salad - peek summer here so blood orange salad with fermented beetroot sticks, candied rhubarb, bronze fennel, garden fennel, radish and a drizzle of strawberry, raspberry, blueberry mustard and poppyseed dressing!

Soup was the creamiest cream .. a warm cauliflower soup with lightly smoked artichokes and a dollop of savory gorgonzola ice cream!!! BEST SOUP I EVER HAD!

Main course was a Grilled mushroom bay leaf skewer with Persian sauce and green olive tapenade sides of roasted potatoes, carrots, scallions and red cabbage. Dessert SWEET was a chocolate and citrus fondant with blood orange salt!

Here are some pics from the garden...
