This spring, there are many ways to enjoy the Durban sunshine, but few as chic and sophisticated as the High Tea at the Endless Horizons Boutique Hotel in Durban North.
The five-star Endless Horizons has hosted a number of high tea events recently, including a special edition for Mother’s Day earlier this year. This month, the award-winning hotel is again offering the very best in exquisite platters to tempt the most refined of visitors in a spectacular setting.
Crafted by expert chef Belinda Kistan, every item on offer is made from locally-sourced ingredients that have been hand-selected for their quality and exceptional taste. Some of the pieces include chive scones with smoked trout mousse, handmade phyllo parcels with spicy lamb, and croissants with sundried tomato, brie cheese, pastrami and rocket. For the sweeter tastes, there are red velvet flower cupcakes, dark chocolate bark with orange and cashew nuts and vanilla shortbread flowers with a caramel topping. A range of other luxuriant creations will also be presented to excite and refresh. The full menu for the upcoming edition is available [here].
Chef Belinda Kistan has an outstanding record of excellence, having been trained at the International Hotel School, developing her career in London and several locations in South Africa, particularly in KwaZulu Natal, making her a specialist in the best that the region has to offer. She has prepared meals for celebrities and guests at a number of five-star hotels and resorts, finding success with her philosophy of sourcing fresh, seasonal, local produce and putting modern twists on classic dishes. She has been a major drive behind the success of the high tea events at Endless Horizons, making the experience one that has become popular for weddings, birthdays and baby showers, or just as a new kind of culinary affair to be savoured.
