No French cuisine, no wannabe anything, but a flavourful blend of the diverse and traditional Cape Cuisine: European, Asian and African. Not as revolutionary as it sounds: boerekos is strongly influenced by the food of the Malay slaves who accompanied their masters to South Africa.
Seasonal menus, with daily specials, break away from the Franschhoek norm. Living up to Solms-Delta’s celebration of everything Hiervandaan (from this place) they are “anything but French”. Instead, Fyndraai Restaurant explores genuine Cape culinary traditions. This truly is ‘food of origin’.
Afrikaner boerekos, which has strong European and “Cape Malay” (slave) influences, mixes with ingredients first used by the indigenous Khoi nomads who lived in the Franschhoek valley thousands of years ago – but the emphasis falls on what is most palatable today. At experimental tastings, masterminded by acclaimed food scientist Renata Coetzee, most “everyday” Khoi ingredients proved too bitter for 21st century palates.
