The new year has hardly kicked in or the Creation team, true to their reputation for constant innovation, are ready to launch yet another dashing way of pairing fabulous food with their glorious wines. Comprising no less than six small-plate dishes, each enhanced with an award-winning Creation wine, the new ‘Celebrate Summer’ Pairing Menu will replace the existing 3-Course Menu.
The new menu is the result of no less than five gifted chefs pooling their talents to bring their guests a feast of aromas, flavours, textures and colours to delight the senses and uplift the spirit. The magic of the wines richly contributes to the joyous variety show!
Among the irresistible pairings are the Shimeji Eggs with Sage Cream and Soba Noodles served with the Creation Reserve Pinot Noir and the Yoghurt and Passionfruit Gelato, Pineapple Pickled Fennel, Blueberries and Sorrel recommended with the Creation Sauvignon Blanc Thanks to the generosity of the Creation Culinary Team, you will find the recipes for the six dishes here.

Here are a few comments recently made by our visitors:
“The food and wine pairing experience of Creation Wines was recommended by a friend who said it is a ‘must visit’ while in Hermanus. It was fully booked all the time but someone cancelled and we could end a great holiday in the magnificent Hemel and Aarde Valley with great food and wine. The tasting / pairing menu offers different options, we selected the 7 meals with wine to match. Each (tiny portion) dish was prepared with great attention to detail and careful thought about the wine best to serve with it. Every course was served on a different style of plate, adding to the overall experience. Some of the dishes were off the charts fantastic, others just great but all together worth every bite. Must note the fabulousness of tasting wine poured into Riedel glasses, of course. Service was efficient and attentive. Restaurant has a great atmosphere thanks to décor elements ranging from quirky (wine glass chandeliers) to high art. If you enjoy scenic beauty, interesting food combinations and wine, do add Creation to your plans when next in Hermanus. Book in advance during peak holiday periods, the place is popular.” – DallenV (TripAdvisor)
