Sejour has just launched their scrumptious Sunday Brunch
Chef Freddie is serving up a delicious combo of [br(eakfast) + (l)unch] every Sunday starting from 13 June.
Joburg’s Sunday brunch scene is set to receive an adventurously flavourful new addition, thanks to Chef Freddie Dias and his team at Séjour. Featuring a menu inspired by Freddie’s Portuguese upbringing, his time spent living in France, and a fervent natural curiosity for food; it’s a packed-with-flavour option as of Sunday 13 June.
The three-course brunch is priced at R450 per person, consisting of a range of small plates, and the option of bottomless bubbly – either Graham Beck Brut or Graham Beck Rosé – for an extra R300.
- The first br(eakfast) course is an egg dish of parmesan Catalan, chive scrambled eggs and hake Brandade. Fresh, homemade Pissaladière is served on the side – a traditional French ciabatta topped with onion, anchovy and black olive.
- The second, (l)unch course features a lamb rack with a red pepper and herb crust, mint feta yoghurt, Moroccan-style cous cous, BBQ brinjal with pomegranate molasses and honey, roasted vegetables with almonds and turmeric and Lyonnaise fine beans.
- A collection of traditional Portuguese pastries – Pasteis de Nata and Bolas de Berlim (almond filled doughnuts) – make for a very sweet ending.
Chef Freddie, who has cooked in top kitchens the world over – including four years at the celebrated Cape Town eatery The Pot Luck Club, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the kitchen. Driven by his natural curiosity and eagerness to always learn more, the acclaimed chef draws influences from all aspects of his life whether it be his upbringing, travels abroad or his many years in service.
“I’m a naturally curious person and I draw inspiration from all aspects of my life, whether that’s from upbringing, the places I’ve worked or countries I’ve visited,” Freddie explains.
