This New Year’s Eve, Catharina’s will be hosting a 6-course dinner for those wanting to round off 2013 with fine dining, superb wine and excellent company in the Cape’s most beautiful surroundings.
Choose from a New Year’s Eve and Vegetarian New Year’s Eve menu, each featuring 6 courses of Chef Garth Almazan’s signature contemporary comfort food. This feast presents the ultimate way to celebrate the dawning of 2014, and end off 2013 with a full belly and a very happy heart.
For R1350 per person, you will be handed a chilled glass of Steenberg 1682 Pinot Noir on arrival, and select from two tempting options for starters and mains.
The New Year’s Eve menu offers a choice of either Olive Crusted Salmon Trout or Variation of Lamb to start, while the Vegetarian Menu’s starter selection features a Double Baked Asparagus & Watercress Soufflé or refreshing Salad of Poached Pear and Endive to choose from. A sorbet course will follow, serving up a Raspberry Sake Sorbet with lime jelly to cleanse the palate in anticipation for the main event.
Regular menu diners can choose from a Char-Grilled Kudu Fillet with Foie Gras, summer mushroom ragout, truffle potato croquettes & Sauce Perigourdine, or a Pan-Fried West Coast Sole, accompanied by marron, grilled scallop, pomme mousseline & warm broad bean and tomato salsa.
Vegetarian mains give guests a choice of Grilled Summer Vegetable Terrine with tea-smoked mozzarella, semolina gnocchi, rocket pesto and vegetable crisps, or a Plum Tomato Risotto, with burrata, poached cherry tomatoes and a fresh basil oil.
The cheese course features a delicious Ash Camembert with tomato chutney ice cream and a fig port purée.
For dessert, a Nyangbo Apricot Mousse will be served, accompanied by a frozen berry cheesecake meringue and apricot coulis. Coffee and Friandise will round off an evening of fine dining and merriment before the New Year sounds.
Cape Town’s popular DJ Crispin will be providing the soundtrack to the dawning of 2014, performing from 22:00 to 01:00.
