Father’s Day culinary escape to Franschhoek
Surprise your dad with a culinary escape to Grande Provence for a Father’s Day lunch in the heart of the Franschhoek winelands on Sunday, June 1; or make a weekend of it if you really want to spoil him.
Executive Chef Guy Bennett has created a three course lunch menu at R400 per person that includes a special gift for dad. All dads visiting Grande Provence on Father’s Day will be treated to a complimentary Angels Tears Le Chocolat Pinotage and biltong tasting.
With the Grande Provence Winter Heartland dinner, bed and breakfast offer, the whole family can enjoy a stay at the Owner’s Cottage, or hide away in the secluded La Provençale at special winter rates.
For the ultimate culinary indulgence, the 3-course Father’s Day menu includes a choice of Saldanha Oysters or steak tartare for starters. The choice for hearty mains is between Chef Guy’s famous slow roasted pork belly with sticky lentil ragout; or his beef short rib with white bean cassoulet.
