Trend forecasters have hailed 2018 as the year of plant-based eating, with Google reporting a 90% increase in searches for vegan food last year. A growing public awareness, about produce security and sustainability, has taken the perception of ‘veganism’ from bland and boring, to tasteful and trendy in the foodie-sphere… and according to all the indicators… it’s here to stay.

Last year vegan diners enjoyed the introduction of the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa’s Vegan Tasting Menu, and following on that trend, they have a new culinary offering – a Vegan High Tea.

Executive Pastry Chef Gina Marziani and her team, have craftily created a Vegan High Tea menu that will have even the non-vegans clambering to try the new high tea spread. Enjoy a tantalising smorgasbord of sandwiches and tortilla wraps with fried aubergines, roasted peppers and marinated tomato. Or on the sweeter side, forest berry jellies, Valrhona Manjari chocolate and peanut bons bons, and banana and oat cookies.

“High tea traditionalists will not be disappointed with our Valrhona Manjari chocolate and hazelnut cake and how could we not include the famous scone… our vegan take on this great tea classic, comes with jam and mixed berry compote,” says Chef Marziani.

The Vegan High Tea is available daily from 10am to 4pm and costs R375 per person. You need to book a day in advance.
