Laura Truter Catering in Paarl and Franschhoek

“I absolutely love what I do and am so fortunate to be able to do it in such an inspiring setting with the best produce, and fantastic local wines to pair with it.. Our lifestyle and climate in the Cape is a perfect match for Mediterranean cuisine and my menus and recipes have a strong Mediterranean influence although I do tend to bring in certain complimentary Scandinavian flavours and recipes which remain close to my heart and which I have a yearning to share. The focus on seasonality is as much present here as it is in Scandinavian cuisine. I also believe that your experiences and travels will always colour your cooking style and tastes though essential cookery basics and traditions should always underpin this sense of adventure!”

Oxtail, Gremolata & Parmesan Polenta

Slow-cooked until the meat is 'fall-off-the-bone' tender. Served with a zesty Gremolata and Parmesan Polenta. For a wholesome, rich stew that simply melts in the mouth.
