Kurland Hotel launches new summer menu

Written by

Perfectly situated near the unspoiled beach resort of Plettenberg Bay, the 5-star Kurland Hotel, a Relais & Châteaux member property, has launched its à la carte Summer menu, available for lunch and dinner, created by leading Head Chef, Leon Coetzee.

In house guests and day visitors may enjoy the new menu in the main restaurant in the homestead.

For starters, guests may indulge in an authentic gazpacho soup, or a duck carpaccio with fresh beans, pecorino and walnut dressed in an orange confit or frog’s legs with pea puree, roasted garlic wild mushrooms and shaved parmesan or a cured jasmine salmon with fried caper berries, candy beets and a vinaigrette, amongst other creative delicacies.

Some of the many mains available which cater for all dietary requirements, including vegetarians, include a Rooibos Scottish smoked salmon with saffron and parmesan risotto sauce and watercress or a crusted chicken breast filled with blue cheese, honey roasted apple and orange butter sauce. Mouth-watering salads are also on offer with decadent desserts presenting a perfect ending to the meal.

Leon has also created speciality dishes, which includes pan-fried Irish scallops with tomato and basil mousse, sautéed foie gras with quince relish and toasted brioche as well as slow roasted duck with wok fried vegetables and an oriental plum sauce.   

A scrumptious South African cheese platter is available consisting of figs, fresh fruits, blue cheese biscuits and a glass of house port.

Comments Head Chef, Leon Coetzee, “We really wanted to present the very best of seasonal ingredients with the new Summer menu and concentrate on the freshness of the herbs and vegetables organically grown on the property and also menu items that complement our new wine and Champagne list.” 

In conjunction with this new menu, Kurland Hotel has welcomed a new wine list, affording guests an overall superb food and wine experience with an extensive choice of Champagnes, Méthode Cap Classique and sparkling wines.
