We went for a long Sunday lunch in Franschhoek at a fantastic little restaurant called Babylonstoren. The restaurant is situated on a magnificent farm (turned hotel) owned by media man Koos Bekker and his stunning wife Karen Roos, former editor of Elle Decoration in South Africa. I got a great picture of Karen standing in the background with a very stylish outfit on – safari inspired with fabulous panama hat and her trademark red lipstick.
What a great way to spend a Sunday with family and friends enjoying good food and the best conversation. The farm has a famous garden which stretches out for miles which is an exact replica of the original Cape Town Company Gardens . Truly breathtaking, and what is even more terrific is in-between starters and mains you take your glass of vino and walk around the gardens.
I recommend the lamb cutlets with chips, followed by the carrot cake and some of the most amazing rose water flavoured cupcakes.
There was a very peculiar individual wearing colour skinnies reading his newspaper right on-top of our table…..
