Going Gourmet with Schoone Oordt0

Posted 26 September, 2011

Such great news, I am so excited…

The wonderful Wander and Sonette Bester, along with Hachi, Shadow and Leo have joined our Schoone Oordt team from an exclusive Game Reserve in the Northern Cape. Wander is our chef and Sonette a wine enthusiast and they’re both amazingly good at caring for people and the property. We’re so grateful to have them and Schoone Oordt is a better place for it. With that comes the preparation for our new restaurant and eventually, High Teas. At the moment, Wander is offering a ‘voorsmakie’ at his Chef’s Table from now until January when we plan to open to the public. We’ll keep it small and intimate, a maximum of 20 diners and guests always come first. Our concept is a beautiful selection of dishes which can be made into 3-course, 4-course, 5-course or 6-course tasting menus. Chef Wander will also offer an 8-course ‘Chef’s Choice’ dinner in our intimate dining room which must be booked in advance. Our style is fine-dining, French-inspired with South African flavour, locally-sourced, seasonal, organic, free-range and quirky, of course… Fabulous Bruce from Flying Horse Photography has taken these yummy pictures.

In preparation of this exciting happening, we would like to offer a special…
A delightful 3-course (with a twist) tasting menu dinner for 2 with any 2-night booking from now until the end of October. Please come and ‘kuier’(visit) with us.

You’ll also notice the many many tabs in the toolbar… I finally have time to facebook, twitter, pin, tumble etc. and I’m still learning, but I’m loving it. Please go and ‘love’ us on all of these social media platforms, if you’re that way inclined. I promise to only feed clever, beautiful, deep, real, soulful things.

We also have some bragging to do. When Visiting South Africa on TripAdvisor, we come up as the #2 rated B&B out of 3,112, isn’t that phenomenal? A genuine and sincere thank you to those fabulous guests that have written such beautiful reviews and those that haven’t, please do… Please help us to get to #1!

With love and care,
Alison
