Food trends and new ways of eating are part of culinary evolution. Veganism, because of its health and environmental benefits, is increasingly in demand globally and South Africa is no different. Not too long ago, eating out for a vegan would have been a challenge, with limited appealing options available on mainstream menus.

No longer!

Due to increasing demand The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa in Cape Town has launched a vegan-tasting menu, which is already proving a hit with patrons.

Executive Chef Christo Pretorius says, ‘Our new vegan tasting menu is made with the freshest, healthiest seasonal ingredients. Things like beetroot, butternut, beans and tofu never tasted or looked this good and is exactly what our vegan diners are looking for.’

The innovative new menu, created by award-winning Chef Pretorius and his kitchen brigade, is sure to get the taste buds of even meat-eaters twitching, with dishes such as salt-baked beetroot, forest mushroom consommé, caramelised pineapple and roast butternut tofu, taking centre-stage.

‘Vegans no longer have to worry about whether they’ll get a square meal when dining out. Our vegan tasting menu is designed to satisfy the needs of our vegan diners but also to give non-vegans an introduction to vegan food.’The meal costs R475 per person and is paired with some of the Western Cape’s most delicious wines.
