Signature Dish: Whole Smoked Trout

Signature Dish: Whole Smoked Trout

A classic favourite at La Petite Ferme, the Whole Smoked Trout has been on the menu for decades, and for good reason!

This unique dish, a farm-fresh smoked trout, served whole with buttered baby potatoes, almonds, balsamic beetroot, parsley and horseradish mayo, is as much part of La Petite Ferme as the unmistakable Franschhoek views are.

One of the first dishes on the menu when La Petite Ferme opened its doors, and still popular among locals and tourists alike, this dish will never go out of style. But what makes this dish so special and unique?

The smoky nature of the trout combined with the beetroot and horseradish flavours create a taste combination that is both rounded and fresh, with the almond finish adding that nutty hint, picked up perfectly by the acidity in the balsamic. The trout itself is cooked to perfection and pulls a part easily with each bite.

Pair this dish with the La Petite Ferme Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay, a wine that possesses the big oaky flavours which appeals to New World wine drinkers, but also the lighter toasty flavours that leaves enough leeway for the wine drinker to enjoy the fruit flavours, complimented by the smokiness in the trout.

So come and enjoy a long laidback lunch, sip on a glass of Chardonnay and take in the rolling hills and beautiful views of the Franschhoek wine valley from our terrace. Bookings are  essential, to book your table call 021 876 3016 or email reception@lapetiteferme.co.za.
