Christmas comes early with Lakeside Lodge & Spa, the award-winning 5-star boutique hotel near Sedgefield. They’re taking the opportunity to celebrate the ‘Christmas in July’ tradition with a decadent feast on 24 July.
Benguela Brasserie & Restaurant will present dishes incorporating classic Christmas flavours, taking advantage of the cooler July weather. The combination makes for a truly traditional affair, with a gourmet twist to appease the foodies among us.
Included in the menu are a ham hock terrine with sweet potato, pea salad and vanilla puree; a maple-glazed duck breast with confit potatoes, pickled onions and cauliflower and a scrumptious serving of chocolate tiramisu and coffee ice-cream.
The experience will also include a performance by a local choir, all tied together with a classic log fire to create the ultimate Christmas atmosphere. So get the family together for an afternoon of food – there’s no need to wait for December!
The Christmas in July feast takes place from 12pm to 2.30pm at a cost of R380 per person. Bookings are essential, so contact +27 (0)44 343 1844 or book online.
