I had to film a segment in the gardens of Babylonstoren and got to meet some of the chefs and taste a signature red salad as well as have lunch in their Greenhouse. Babylonstoren is a master class in how to create an experience for the senses that begins the moment you get out of your car and follows you home in a basket full of beautiful delicacies. The breads are artisan artistry. The salad a riot of flavours and textures. The humble sandwich elevated to an interactive fine dining experience. The setting is tranquil and made more charming by the presence of free-roaming chickens and turkeys, a gently snuffling donkey and the currently snow-capped mountains of Franschoek. What I loved most about my day there was the genuine passion and devotion of the people I met - from kitchen to wait staff, shop staff to gardeners. Well done, Babylonstoren for crafting a sublime experience in every way.
