Cultivating Winelands Farm to Table Ethos at Werf Restaurant


Cultivating Winelands Farm to Table Ethos at Werf Restaurant

Written by Boschendal

Boschendal, a vibrant winelands farm, is now the home of naturally produced and artisan food, where visitors relish in unique gourmet experiences with shared meals of local, seasonal and ethically-sourced ingredients.

Our new shared meal experience at The Werf Restaurant, crafted by Chef Christiaan Campbell,  is testament to farm to table dining in a contemporary style. Share and savour these shared 'farm feast' dishes at the beautifully revamped restaurant with views over the food garden towards spectacular mountain vistas.

Diners can sample a seasonal selection of fresh farm and garden harvest including vegetables, crisp salads and fragrant herbs.  Make your shared selection from a daily seasonal menu with plentiful platters such as naturally raised Boschendal Angus beef, glazed lamb ribs, slow cooked shoulder, roasted lambb rump, burnt onions, Romesco sauce or ocean fish en papillote baked in parchment paper, octopus, squid, fillet of line fish, basil, parsley & dill garden herbs, buttered potato mousse and pickled tomato.

“I thrive on the challenge of translating our farm-fresh produce, all of which is grown in rich, fertile living soil or is naturally raised, pasture-fed and free-range, into delicacies to be enjoyed at the Werf in natural surroundings,” said Chef Christiaan Campbell, whose passion is tangible in each gourmet creation, “real natural food just boasts so much more flavour.”

Accommodation

Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm with luxury accommodation ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage to beautifully restored farm labourer cottages. With emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic, rural yet contemporary in character.

The Farm

Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories.

Eat & Drink

The Cape Dutch farms were historically renowned for their warm welcome and generous hospitality. What crowned this welcome was the Cape table, laden with wholesome dishes made from ingredients from the farm’s werf and fields.
