KZN Food Photography – Chef Constantijn Hahndiek
My passion for food and photography continues unabated…….so I was of course rather thrilled when the GM from Hartford House – Duncan Bruce – called me to set up our next shoot. They had a VIP guest, restaurant crit and blogger, Chris Von Ulmenstein and Chef Tijn was preparing some special dishes. I have to admit, I got to taste each and although they were all beautifully presented, smelled sensational and tasted divine – the Quail did it for me.
The yummy bread served at your table
Heirloom kale and cremealat gorgonzola with oven roast grapes
UP next was JODIS QUAIL – seared quail breast, sweet corn chowder, crispy pancetta and bacon powder
Rock Cod on the rocks – grilled with clay baked potato, pea puree and the magical confit egg yolk. Paired with Creation Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
Best End of Lamb – winters end vegetables, beetroot gnocchi and kalamata olives paired rather nicely with Thelema Merlot
Apples gone Rhubarb – Parfait, compressed apple with butter cake and gel. Paired with Klein Constantia vin de Constance.
