serves a wonderfu I variety of Mediterranean and true South African favorites in their

Seafood, Grills, Pizza & Pasta! With one of the best locations and sea-views on the coast

it is a destination in Ballito that you certainly have to visit!


If you're eating in, instead of out, and are looking for a show-stopping d~ssert to wow your din,ner guests

then you have to try Simbithi Country Club's Fig Tree Restaurant execut1ve chef Daryn Bowers decadent

Chocolate Parfait. It will not disappoint!



• 7 egg yolks

• 125g icing sugar

• 200g dark chocolate

• 300g butter

• 1 OOg cocoa powder

• 175g icing sugar

• SOOml cream, whipped


1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler.

2.1n another bowl, cream together the egg yolks

and 125g icing sugar.

3.1n a sauce pan, gently melt the butter and cool

slightly. Add the cocoa powder and 175g icing sugar.

Stir to remove any lumps.

4. Add the melted chocolate to the egg yolk mixture

and then add the melted butter mixture. Work

quickly, as the mixture will begin to thicken.

5. Quickly fold in the whipped cream.

6. Place in moulds and leave to set.



• 1 cup cream

• 375g condensed milk

• 1 cup granadilla pulp

• 1 tbsp powdered gelatin, soaked in 60ml


• 2 egg whites, whipped until stiff

• 2 ml salt


1. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold through

condensed milk and pulp until well combined.

2. Heat gelatin until melted and whisk into cream


3. Whisk egg whites and salt to soft peak stage and

fold into granadilla mixture. Pour into serving dishes

and set in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving.

4. Serve topped with extra granadilla


Play around with, nuts, berries, edible flowers,

chocolate discs or tuilles- imagination is the key! I

use clear transparency paper or a silicone sheet to

mould my chocolate. If you have neither the time

nor chef's hands ... store-bought wafers will also

suffice. I won't tell anyone if you don't.

Recipe supplied by Simbithi Country Club's Fig

Tree Restaurant executive chef, Daryn Bowers. The

Fig Tree has an extensive A La Carte menu, with

breakfast, lunch and dinner options.
