The only thing better than hot chocolate in winter is the amazing winter menu’s that all our favourite Cape Town and surrounding restaurants have on offer throughout the chilly months of June through to September.

One of those favourites is the Terra del Capo Antipasto Bar at Anthonij Rupert Wyne in Franschhoek, and they’ve just launched their 2017 winter menu. The Terra del Capo winter menu features an assortment of divine dishes, as well as a handful of new dishes and some signature favourites. Guests can choose from a selection of hot and cold Antipasti dishes, paired with wines from the Protea, L’Ormarins and Terra del Capo ranges.

The hot dishes include the ever-popular crunchy zucchini fries with garlic aioli; ‘Skilpadjies’ – a South African classic; and braised lamb arancini, served with homemade tomato chutney. The crisp fried calamari with parsley and caper aioli, as well as the tasty salsicca meatballs served in a marinara sauce are warm, classic dishes paired perfectly with a rich red wine.
