I’m always loathe to say we’re starting a new ‘series’ of posts on the blog, as it’s quite a commitment to keep it up but Lunch in the Winelands is beneficial on so many levels so here we go…
We’ve got a list of wine farms we’re keen to visit but never any time to actually go out there and enjoy them! A couple of weeks ago we finally got to tick Middelvlei off the list. We booked for the Boere Braai lunch – doesn’t that sound yum? Middelvlei is situated very close to the Route 44 market, so it’s easy to find. They’ve got a lovely big sandpit for kids as well as plenty of lawn for running around, goats and chickens to feed, scooters to ride, marshmallows to toast on the fire and even a tractor ride (by prior arrangement).
The food was phenomenal. We started off with homemade potbrood cooked on the fire and served with pates and jams. We then moved onto the main course of braaibroodjies (also cooked on the fire), chicken kebabs, lamb chops, green salad, potato salad and pumpkin fritters. And we finished off with coffee and creme brulee. A serious feast!
