Food Glorious Food!

At Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards we take food seriously. That does not mean that our food is serious. Our food is delicious, it is fresh, it is imaginative and it is fun!

And then there is an array of ways for you to experience food at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards – no mediocre lunches or boring tea’s!

Rotisserie lunches

Succulent meat from the rotiserrie

South Africans love to braai and every lunch at Leopard’s Leap bring you some of the deliciousness of a braai, but in the form of a state of the art Rotisserie on which succulent pork bellies with the crispest of crackling, the juiciest chickens, the most flavoursome beef and the softest lamb are rotating. Pick your favourite with an accompanying sauce and indulge!

Harvest Table

Leopard’s Leap Harvest Table

But if you cannot live from meat alone, our Harvest Table gives plenty an option with its fresh salads, a variety of vegetable dishes, freshly baked breads and decadent pastas. With a lush herb and vegetable garden providing us with fresh ingredients daily, the harvest table offers a healthy seasonal menu that changes all the time.

Enthusiastic home cooks are invited to a programme of cooking classes that has something for everyone. With seasonal topics, the programme covers a variety of cooking styles and food types, amongst others: cooking with curry, planning an inspirational festive menu, creating delicious, healthy options in tune with your new year’s resolutions, trying your own patés, parfaits and terrines for summer suppers or perfecting pastry.
