Renowned La Petite Ferme Restaurant gets a revamp

La Petite Ferme

When we imagine Franschhoek, we think of lush green slopes, world-class wine and the renowned establishment: La Petite Ferme. This restaurant is located on the Franschhoek pass road, and the property overlooks the slopes of Oliphant Pass and Middagkrans Mountain. La Petite Ferme is recognised for its fine wines, gourmet cuisine and charming guesthouse. Renovations have been underway since October 2015 and have now been completed to reveal a refreshed dining destination. Still offering the same heart and warmth, stemming from its culinary heritage and the bounty of the winelands, this award-winning culinary destination has been revamped to sport a more modern, fresh appeal. restaurant_lapetiteferme Lebanese interior decorator, Claudia Chahine has overseen the new decor, whilst one of our favourite ceramists Mervyn Gers has designed the dinnerware service. A gentle revival has taken place at this adored location, with an added tapas and cocktail menu. Ngwenya Glassware made from recycled glass, complements the work of Gers. lunchtime_lapetiteferme Executive chef for 8-years, Neethling du Toit, uses local produce to spoil guests. Some of our favourites are the smoked trout and aubergine wrapped lamb. In gourmet style, the display of each ingredient is carefully considered. Du Toit is creative with his dishes, incorporating an  international twist to the menu. La Petite Ferme’s new summer menu, to be launched in November, will remain true to form, featuring a variety of polished dishes, earthy yet urbane, and ranging from small plates and light bites to hearty entrees and indulgent desserts all inspired by the season and paired with fine local wines.
