Babel at Babylonstoren in the wine lands leans towards simplicity – but with an edge.
Meals are creative though always clear in structure. Vegetables and fruit gathered daily from the garden are often served with their skins on. Helpings are generous and meals may be taken either in the glass enclosed restaurant or under the Plain trees in the courtyard, depending on the weather.
One of the biggest treats if you choose to stay over at Babylonstoren is that you get to begin the day with a Babel breakfast! Fresh fruit and juices straight from nature, homemade mueslis and thick yoghurts, farm honey, and every day a choice of something delicious and hot, maybe Babylonstoren eggs and local Serrano style ham from the Valley.
Staying guests are invited to join the chefs in the open kitchen or on a herb gathering expedition to the garden. There will be something new for even the most seasoned foodie, try Tamarillos or homegrown Peanuts!
Basically, they don't like to tamper unduly with food or slash it to bits - pick, clean, serve is our approach. Food reflects the colours of the season: in summer they may serve you an Orange Salad of pumpkin, oranges, carrots and maybe a handful of pomegranate seeds; in winter there will perhaps be a slow-cooked leg of lamb to warm you. twitter: @babylonstorenOpen:
