Chef Guy Clark’s Ocean and Ash Tasting Menu at Tintswalo Atlantic
Dine in style at Tintswalo Atlantic. Enjoy Executive Chef Guy Clark's eight-course Ocean and Ash Tasting Menu.
The story of Tintswalo Atlantic is a truly special one. Wedged along the rocky shore of the Atlantic with Hout Bay and its Sentinel nestled across the bay, the boutique lodge sits pretty.
What Executive Chef Guy Clark and the establishment have in common, is their passion. “I would like to offer diners a new perspective on food and a unique taste experience, with dishes that are simple yet sophisticated, and beautifully presented. I believe in celebrating ingredients in their purest form, using methods and techniques that enhance flavour, presentation and texture.” he mused.
The ‘Ocean and Ash’ menu features different themes. The first course focuses on seaweed, in three variations. The following three courses feature smoke as a central theme while the fourth pays homage to the breathtaking seaside location. This is then followed by the ‘fynbos’ theme in the form of fynbos rabbit wrapped in a fermented goats cheese ash case and served with wild sorrel butter. The final theme - Buchu - is honoured with a Buchu ice cream, ash meringue and ocean salt itakuja valrhona chocolate.
