With this groaning cheeseboard, do I really need to write much more? There were only 8-10 guests in residence at La Residence, so we were simply amazed by the spread that was put out on the buffet each day of our stay.
There were several pitchers of juice, several bowls of cereal and muesli, yoghurt, guava and watermelon rind preserves, sliced fresh fruit, poached pears, croissant, muffins, smoked salmon and cold cuts. And there was a selection of hot dishes as well! The guava seemed a bit odd, until we got to some fruit orchards later the same day. They have fantastic guavas and in other parts of South Africa, mangoes as well!
At our first breakfast, I started off with a croissant, some smoked salmon, a caperberry and some cheese. I had that while they cooked up my main course…
…which was this platter with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, sautéed mushrooms, beans and a grilled tomato. I LOVE breakfast plates like this. And the sautéed mushrooms were EXCELLENT and really flavorful. Some nice toast on the side, lots of butter and several jams were also on the table.
Our daughter had some scrambled eggs on toast topped with smoked salmon and served with a tomato relish.
While on a second morning she had an over the top french toast with cheese, bananas, walnuts and syrup. Mrs. MM would have this as well but without all of the toppings… On our second morning I had the platter of bacon etc. all over again as it was that good. Now well fortified, we were off to tour wine country…
