Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to experience the chef’s table dining experience at Table Seven in Salt River, located in the new and trendy Salt Orchard Precinct. Husband and wife team Luke and Katie Wonnacott have created a private dining experience that’ll knock your socks right off.
As you walk into the space you notice the massive open plan kitchen on one side of the room and then the most magnificent 20 seater table down the other side of the room. So while you sip, chat and eat, Luke is cooking away right in front of you. Pots steaming, sizzling noises coming from the grill and flour flying as he rolls out beautiful fresh pasta.
Our meal was exceptional. Everything looked exquisite and Luke’s flavours pack a punch. Luke and Katie source the very finest produce and treat it with the utmost respect. It’s the kind of food you want to keep going back for. Again and again. The burrata made my knees weak and there was almost a table fight over the last piece of grilled octopus. We left very full and very happy.
Here’s a look at our incredible meal:
Lightly smoked Lüderitz oyster, watercress pesto, seaweed granite & oyster jelly
Wood fired baguette, olives, rosemary, chilli & fennel
Duck Rillette, pickled beetroot, almonds & cranberries
Grilled octopus & sauce vierge
Burrata, nectarine, Parma ham, lavender vinaigrette & basil
Butternut, goat’s cheese & sundried tomato ravioli, salsa verde & pickled waterblommetjie
Saffron & orange glazed lamb shoulder, braised carrots & artichokes
Whole roasted cauliflower, nori, cashew nut, caper & sultana beurre noisette
Madeleines straight out of the oven – HEAVEN
