The Black Pepper Coated Beef Fillet was the little black dress of the menu: simple, elegant and could stand out in a crowd on it’s own. It was a simple dish, elegantly presented, that confirmed that a great chef doesn’t need culinary trickery to impress diners, just great technique. thttp://clico-boutique-hotel.co.za/
his was comfort food,served South-African style, that literally grabbed your taste-buds by the balls as the earthy richness of the roasted garlic, mushrooms and jus lulled you into an epicurean ecstasy.
Notice how incredibly healthy this dish is served as a salad with orange segments and pomegranate. It’s a perfect meal for people wanting to lose weight, and also those who don’t, because it’s also packed with antioxidants and visual appeal. I still enjoyed this dish to the point where I’ve stolen the recipe for myself. It’s a perfect high protein, low carb salad to pack for lunch at the office maybe even substituting the duck for chicken or ham.
