Dining at Birkenhead House
Mussel Picking and Seaside Foraging
Guests love joining our chefs on Mussel Picking excursions along the rocks below Birkenhead House. Learn how to safely pick these delicious marine treats before our chefs provide a ”Master Class” on how to cook them on an open fire incorporating other fresh ingredients. Enjoy your steaming hot mussels with freshly baked bread and a glass of your favourite white wine as you recount stories of the day’s adventures. Guests can also go foraging for edible Fynbos species along the coastal shoreline.
Kindly note that all seaside foraging is seasonal and subject to coastal conservation rules.
Sunset South African Braai
Nothing brings friends and family together like a South African braai! Offered only on select occasions during the summer months, this evening feast celebrates our local heritage. From fresh seafood and tender meats to a variety of vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
