Spoil Mom with Gourmet Gold at the Cellars-Hohenort this Mother’s Day!

Show your love and appreciation on Mother’s Day by spoiling mom.

Either with a delectable 3-course lunch on Sunday 14 May 2023, or an indulgent Mother’s Day High Tea that is available at the Cellars-Hohenort Hotel & Spa throughout the Mother’s Day weekend (12 to 14 May 2023).

Served in the Conservatory Restaurant, the lunch feast is inspired by flowers, the epitome of femininity, and presented as a token of love and appreciation. The menu begins with a choice between Klein Karoo ostrich with beetroot, peppered-sorghum and rose petal jam; or Heirloom tomato tartare with pickled mustard, basil, nasturtium pesto, cranberry oil and buckwheat tuile.

Mains offer a trifecta of delicious choices including Dry-aged beef sirloin with wild garlic potato fondant, grilled artichoke hearts, coconut-lavender marshmallow and red grape; Red drum sea-bass with white truffle pommes dauphine, cauliflower and zucchini blossom salad; or Grilled cauliflower with white bean & almond velouté, African red pepper pesto, sunchoke and salsa verde. Ending things on a sweet and memorable note, diners can opt for either the Hibiscus mille-feuille, or Camomile panna cotta.

The Cellars-Hohenort’s decadent Mother’s Day High Tea is served over four courses and begins with a selection of Tea Sandwiches; followed by a second savoury course of Duck larb & lavender chilli jam; Shredded lamb slider and minted tzatziki; Stuffed zucchini blossom and coriander truffle pesto; Oak-smoked chicken croquette and nasturtium aioli; and Artichoke arancini with grapefruit. Buttery Scones with hibiscus jam and Chantilly cream are the next highlight; before the grand finale of an irresistible selection of Pâtissières.

The High Tea comes with a choice of eleven loose-leaf teas. Each tea blend is meticulously curated by Master Tea Blender, Mingwei Tsai, who has also created a unique Cellars-Hohenort Blend of Nigiro tea, incorporating the spicy fragrance and bronze/apricot colour of the Liz McGrath Rose.

Before or after lunch, take Mom for a stroll around the iconic gardens of the hotel, which spread over nine acres, containing a myriad of delights from trees dating back 300 years, to structured gardens with beautiful water features and ponds.
