Healthy, Honest, Wholesome Food with A Hint of Intrigue
Take a trip to Paarl and try out Nourish, a restaurant serving healthy food in a totally new way
Nourish at Sante is a culinary experience like no other. With a focus on producing food that is both nutritious and tasty, dishes are surprising and exciting. Nourish, the new on-site restaurant at Sante Wellness Retreat and Spa in Paarl follows a very simple principle – nutritious food is the foundation of health. The food is mouthwatering, unique and completely free of sugar, dairy and gluten. However, don’t just expect a garden salad.
Nourish offers unique and interesting starters such as oysters and grapefruit. Among the main courses on offer is a delicious mouthwatering char-grilled ostrich fillet and sprout massaman curry. Think dessert needs to lead to a sugar high? Think again. Nourish uses natural ingredients to create healthy alternatives to recreate sugary favourites. One of their most flavour-filled offerings on the menu is cauliflower ice-cream served with honeycomb and they also make a sublime ginger creme brulee.
Honest, healthy nutrition is at the heart of this restaurant. All meals are created using only unrefined ingredients from their own indigenous kitchen garden and local biodynamic farmers and suppliers. Executive Chef Terrence Ford and consulting chef Margot Janse are constantly evolving the menu at Nourish as they come up with new ways to prepare delicious and honest dishes. All meals are prepared using only real, unrefined foods, without the use of sugar, dairy, gluten, preservatives, colourants and additives.
There’s also a luxurious retreat and spa on the property. Santé is the perfect getaway for anyone needing to re-energise, revitalise or just relax. Sante Retreat and Wellness offers visitors some downtime as well as professional guidance at their Health Optimisation Clinic. The day spa has all the usual favourites like full body and aromatherapy massages as well as nails and waxing. The health optimisation section of Sante offers to help you achieve optimum health, enhance longevity and correct imbalances. Each client is treated on a personal one-on-one basis and a full health assessment is done at the beginning to map out an appropriate treatment plan.
Tip: Go in with an open mind. You’ll taste dishes you never thought you would and will certainly be pleasantly surprised.
