Sundays just levelled up in the Mother City! Chef Ryan Cole of Salsify at The Roundhouse is launching ‘Salsify Sundays’ and this looks just incredible!
Overlooking the cerulean vistas of the ocean, Salsify’s enviable location suits Ryan perfectly. Having grown up in a fishing household, the ocean was an integral part of his childhood. The fishing lifestyle is a pragmatic one, an everyday job, and the Sunday lunch tradition was never a staple in the Cole family.
“We never really had a family that was into Sunday lunches. My mother was also never really a good cook, so we more looked forward to the homemade Swiss roll,” he laughs.
Thus, the concept behind Salsify’s Sunday Lunch was born not from a memory as much as a re-imagination, inspired by the notion of the perfect Sunday.
Salsify’s Sunday Lunch offers a five-course menu, with or without a wine pairing, featuring starters including Fire-Roasted Pumpkin Bread with lovage butter and pumpkin seed crumb, Beef Tartar and a Salsify fish braai, mains including Roast Baby Chicken with bread sauce dumplings, and Beef Fillet with onion Tarte Tatin and roast carrot, and desserts of decadent Dark Chocolate Soufflé with a yoghurt sorbet and, of course, Ryan’s Passionfruit Swiss Roll, a gastronomic take on his childhood favourite.
The wine pairing option is a veritable feast of its own. Presenting a “Magnum fiesta”, Salsify offers a selection of notable wines and vintages, many served from marvellous magnums.
The Salsify Sunday Menu launches on Sunday 25 August. The menu is priced at R695 per person for the lunch with an additional R550 for the wine pairing option.
Salsify at The Roundhouse is situated on Round House Road, Camps Bay. Bookings are available online via www.salsify.co.za with tables for 2-8 guests.
