Now, six years later, just in time for the next trip to Forum Homini, it so happened that my sister was in town again (could it be that she actually plans THAT well!?) So, off we went to celebrate my birthday with an epic 6 course Sunday lunch at their award winning restaurant Roots which, now for the 5th year running, is one of Eat Out magazines’ TOP 10 restaurants in South Africa.
(The art piece above is by Marco Ciafenelli. It is called “The Sum of Us” and shows an ape skull in the centre evolving to a human skull).
We sat on the sun deck, right at the water’s edge with views over the lake and veld. The dishes were beautifully presented and served with wine teasers by a sommelier to complement each dish. It was a relaxed and lazy four hour long lunch – the best possible way to spend my birthday!
