Selection Springfontein Eats (drinks too): Eating Poems

Since a month or so there is a new restaurant in (or better: just outside) the village. Not one of 13 in a dozen but it’s one with the first Michelin Star rating in South Africa. Ain’t we lucky!

One can use many, many words in bragging about the food but I just quote one of our previous neighbors who just said: “I ate poems”.

Springfontein Eats is located at the estate of Springfontein Winery and to qualify their wines: “I drunk …..”. My personal favorites of this cellar are the Chenin Blanc and Petit Verdot (only a few estates in South Africa produce Petit Verdot which is an excellent digestive).

Anyway I was there this morning to show my wife the pictures I made and which (on 60×90 CM board) are hanging on the walls. For me the opportunity to make some extra pictures just to show you the ambiance in case you’re in the neighborhood one day…

Assignment

Last week I finished the assignment for 8 (60×90 cm) posters for a new restaurant here in the village. And ┬áthe guests are raving about it I understood this weekend. The new restaurant (Springfontein Eats) is the first Michelin Star rated restaurant in South Africa. The kitchen (with permanently 3 chefs) is larger than the restaurant itself!!! And it needs to be because it’s not a quickie home cooking but the different ingredients (some foraged by THE Chef himself in the surrounding nature) undergo a long process of pre-preparation and (slow) cooking, etc.

Anyway; herewith a few pictures and if you want to see more … (?) …. come to Stanford, South Africa and EAT!!!
