Chocolate fondants, butterkuchen and lemon meringue, and some deep-fried ice cream, too. An exquisite slice of sweetness is the cherry on top of a good meal. Which is why, the Insiders have been out and about, sampling delicious treats to bring you the very best puds in the land. Here are our picks…
1. AVONTUUR ESTATE
The dessert Deep Fried Ice Cream with butterscotch sauce
Why you’ll love it All of Avontuur’s desserts are delicious but my favourite is the decadent deep-fried ice cream with butterscotch sauce: rich and creamy vanilla ice-cream wrapped in phyllo pastry and deep-fried to crispy perfection served with a buttery butterscotch caramel sauce.
Good to know The roast duckling with a Van der Hum sauce and caramelised orange has to be one of – if not – the best roast duck in the Cape. Wash this down with the easy-drinking 2015 Avontuur sauvignon blanc which, at R115 a bottle, is outstanding value.
