Celebrate Easter with a Sunday buffet in Italianesque style

Easter Sunday lunch is traditionally a day to enjoy with family, usually involving varying degrees of feasting. In keeping with this tradition, the Palazzo’s newly refurbished Medeo restaurant in Montecasino has created an amazing buffet menu (https://www.tsogosun.com/the-palazzo-hotel/offers/easter-sunday-buffet-lunch) designed for a memorable Easter celebration.

Medeo (https://www.tsogosun.com/medeo) relaunched in March 2019 with a chic new look and feel reflecting both Italianesque and South African style and featuring bold colour and added comfort, created and coordinated by David Muirhead & Associates Interior Architectural Design. The changes included classical and comfortable seating that ensures people can linger over their meals, vibrance with colours and textures, and as a main focus, magnificent large artworks of birds in flight by Kirsty May Hall on the walls.

The Medeo Easter Sunday Lunch buffet menu includes a special kids’ buffet featuring their favourite foods and desserts, and for the grown-ups, an antipasti selection to start with marinated produce in herbs and olive oil; oysters with bloody Mary jelly and lemon pearls; shrimp cognac salad and various other salads; charcuterie; vegetarian options; tapenade; assorted smoked fish platter; shell fish salad, and more, and a soup station.

The hot carvery features perfectly roasted beef, apricot glazed pork loin, roast chicken roll, deboned lamb shoulder, and sauces and jellies as accompaniment. The hot selection includes potato au gratin, basmati, grilled truffle polenta, roast vegetables, Moroccan style lamb tagine with chickpeas and toasted almonds, spinach and feta lasagne, grilled kingklip, calamari and prawns.

Desserts are not to be missed and include chocolate Easter candy cake, carrot cake roulade, rocky road brownie, panettone, macarons, tartlets, chocolate and orange crème brulee, dark chocolate passion fruit mousse, other assorted mini desserts, and hot cross bread pudding with vanilla sauce. For the finishing touch to the meal is an excellent cheese display with preserves, roasted nuts and crackers.

Gareth Jordaan, Palazzo Executive Chef, says, “The Medeo Easter Sunday buffet menu has been created to delight everyone, to allow tastings of something new and enjoyment of the traditional, and to provide a memorable meal in our beautiful, refreshed restaurant. It will be a special experience for everyone in the family.”
