Cecilia’s South African dishes

Cecilia is totally responsible for all catering and accommodation arrangements.

Right at the onset I should say: “Should you have any specific dietary requirements, simply let us know when you book, and Cecilia will cater for your individual tastes.” It also goes without saying that any type of food can be prepared on request: Kosher or Halaal or Fish on Fridays: Makes no difference to Cecilia! She will present what you ask for.

With Cecilia being in the first place girl who grew uo on a Free State farm, she is probably at her best preparing traditional South African “farmers fare dishes”. Delicious traditional South African dishes are served, thar compares very well with the best world cuisine. Please warn us beforehand if you are a real wine connoseur, we will then be sure to serve you only the best of the fine South African wines.

What better way to watch the sun rise over the Free State grassveld than whilst enjoying a healthy breakfast featuring fresh local fruit of the season and whatever you have requested when ased the night before. Often ‘breakfast’ will be a very early and simple affair of coffee or tea and a few hastily duncked rusks before you are off to hunt. But then not too long afterwards you will be fortifying yourself for the activities ahead with a satisfying brunch. Cecilia’s specialities include various flavors of venison saussage and hot freshly baked bread with home made jam. Yummy!
