Love indulging in High Tea but Banting, Diabetic or on a Low Carb diet?
Then you’ll be pleased to hear about the new Low Carb High Tea now being served at The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel in Constantia, Cape Town.
A few weeks back I was invited to enjoy an afternoon in the beautiful surroundings of this pocket of paradise and to enjoy a sampling of their Low Carb High Tea offering along with a few of the spoils on offer in the beauty spa, Fresh Wellness and their hair salon, Hair by Elouise.
My plus one for the event was none other than my fellow fan of the good life… my daughter, Abigail, and we had a thoroughly indulgent afternoon together.
We first enjoyed the delicious array of low carb offerings such as Grass-fed beef & peppadew sosaties; a selection of hummus, lavash & crudités; broccoli, roasted red peppers & goats cheese tarts; and prawn Vietnamese rice paper roll bringing an Asian flavour into the mix – Abi is a big fan of savoury and these were her favourite!
I prefer the sweeter side of the table and loved the dark chocolate & beetroot cupcakes, sugar-free Fruit pavlovas, and yoghurt honey panna cotta.
Also on offer were delicious bite size open sandwiches, which include toppings such as coronation chicken; roast beef, red onion, horseradish and smoked salmon.
After enjoying the delicious delights of the tea table, we headed indoors to explore the beauty spa and the hair salon – I was treated to a quick QMS facial (my favourite!!) and Abi had her hair curled in her very first time in a hairdresser’s chair – her face was priceless!!
Next time you’re in the mood for a cup of tea why not head to the Cellars-Hohenort and enjoy an afternoon strolling through their lush green garden before cosy-ing up in front of the fire.
The Low Carb High Tea is R195 per person including tea or coffee and is available from 15:00 – 17:00 daily. Bookings essential.
