Longridge Wine Estate
Spoil Mom this Mother’s Day with a leisurely lunch at the beautiful Longridge Wine Estate and Restaurant outside Stellenbosch.  In addition to their recently introduced winter a la carte menu, Longridge will also be offering a special Mother’s Day buffet lunch on the upper level.
Chef Bruce von Pressentin and culinary consultant Marilou Marais have once again created a tantalising menu featuring their trademark classic country cuisine using the freshest locally sourced and seasonal produce.  Guests will be welcomed with a glass of Longridge MCC brut infused with delicious home-made Shiraz syrup and a mouth-watering selection of amuse bouche on arrival.  

The informal and relaxed ambience in the restaurant will be even more enticing with a crackling fire in the fireplace and soothing background music. Each mom will receive a jar of home-made grape jam to take home and stand a chance to win a case of Longridge wines on the day.

On the a la carte menu, guests will have a choice between starters ranging from a Mediterranean vegetable roulade, pork belly, a pear and walnut or baby beet salad, fresh oysters and sticky sesame beef strips.  The main course menu features stuffed beef fillet on the bone, battered haloumi, Franschhoek trout, Thai chicken curry, the ever popular venison pie and slow-roasted lamb neck.  The delectable dessert menu includes a vanilla pannacotta, baked lemon cheese cake with Shiraz syrup, a chocolate and pear tart, a selection of home-made ice creams and sorbets, baked Brie or a Winelands cheese platter.

The sumptuous buffet will be served in the banqueting room with its sweeping views across the Cape peninsula.  The three-course buffet meal costs R250 per adult and R80 per child under 13.  The starter selection includes a choice between a hearty cream of cauliflower soup or a wild mushroom, thyme and gruyere tart.  The main course buffet features duck and cherry pie, slow-roasted pork neck stuffed with prunes and apples and served with a whole grain mustard sauce, oven- roasted coriander crusted matured beef sirloin with a red wine sauce or paella as well as a selection of vegetables and salads.   For a sweet finale, each table will be served a dessert platter with a decadent selection of sticky chocolate brownies, mini cheese cakes, malva pudding squares and petite crème brulee followed by tea and coffee.
