Executive Chef Kerry Kilpin has added new twists of flavour to her summer menu, making a visit to Bistro Sixteen82, Steenberg’s popular cellar door restaurant in Constantia, even more enticing.
Known for uncomplicated bistro-style food and tapas that is seasonal, flavourful and bursts with freshness, Chef Kerry draws on experiences during her travels to find new inspiration and authentic ingredients.
Guests can look forward to some fabulous new additions to her lunch menu for the summer season.
Starters include baby Patagonian calamari and Panko crusted cheese fritters. To enliven the tender baby calamari, Chef Kerry combines the gentle texture of avocado pulp with tomato & jalapeno jam, a dollop of aioli, and coriander salsa.
The cheese fritters are served with tender greens, beetroot carpaccio and rosemary crème fraîche enriched with hints of umami and sweetness from truffle honey she discovered during her travels to Europe last year.
On the new main course menu, the sustainable fish comes with a surge of flavours from cauliflower “humus”, piccalilli, rooibos vinaigrette, saltanas and a zucchini salad.
Chef Kerry’s braised lamb neck is stuffed to perfection with herb ricotta and served with shallot, spinach, tomato and tarragon jus and a dash of olive salsa.
The dessert menu takes indulging your sweet tooth to another level with no less than three brand new heavenly creations added to the already ample line-up of delightful treats.
