Food Review: This velvety dessert will leave you wanting more

At Benguela on Main in the Western Cape’s Helderberg region, you can experience fine dining at its best.

But it was at the Whale Coast Hotel in the Overberg that I was lucky enough to see a live demonstration by the restaurant’s executive chef, Jean Delport. The advertisers (also) promised a fine dining dish demo, but unfortunately we were not that lucky.

We did, however, experience this top chef’s Frozen Pave (pronounced parvay) “Ice Cream” Sandwich, and boy, what a delicious experience it was. His skill blended with yummy ingredients like dark chocolate and whipped cream resulted in a melt-in-your-mouth dessert.


I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to try this one at home (we even got the recipe!), but perhaps I’ll venture over to Benguela on a very special occasion to treat myself once more. You know, sometime in the future.

Leave a reply. I'd love to hear from you.
