Join us for a celebration of seasonal flavours with this unique winter pop-up dining experience. This events theme is Winter Wonderland with a farm to table theme. 


We are delighted to invite local chef Dylan Laity and his Salt of the Earth team into our gardens and kitchens to create some wildly delicious magic for you all! At this event, he will be using special techniques to tantalise the taste buds and focus his passion on winter vegetables and foraged ingredients. It will be a journey of flavours, including influences from Asia, Europe, South Africa, and many more. The meal will be served in the beautiful Veld and Sea Glasshouse and perfectly paired with local wines. 

Please note: Due to the nature of the event, this set menu unfortunately does not cater for specific dietary requirements but we can accommodate for vegan diets if we are notified well in advance.
