Corne van der Walt established Corne’s Deli at the rustic Paardevlei estate in Somerset West in a historic building designed by Sir Herbert Baker and expanded the offering to typical Deli products, while sticking to her motto of sourcing only quality, hand-made produce from South African farms and producers.
Corne’s Deli recently introduced a Deli box which contains a variety of four of their best artisanal cheeses, a selection of cold meats and salami’s, a fresh baguette, fresh fruit, mixed nuts, dried fruit, celery sticks, pickled onions, tzatziki, jalapeno jelly, hummus, olives, and some chocolates – enough for four to six people and perfect for events or parties, although it can be ordered and enjoyed any day of the week.
You just open it, indulge, and afterward recycle the box, no dishes, no preparation, no hassles, and fantastic value for money. Apart from the cheese and other artisanal products, the Deli arguably offers a coffee and tea menu complemented by the sit-down light meals menu. The gourmet toasted sandwiches are only made with products found in the Deli, from the sourdough bread, farm butter, artisanal cheese, and cold meats that are being fused in interesting taste sensation combinations – all of it can be found in the Deli.
Customers are welcome to come and taste the cheeses and Corne will recommend the best pairing and use of the cheese in recipes. You will also find delicious exclusive jams and preserves some of which are made by Corne herself. Some of the interesting jams are the following; Strawberry Gin Jam, Butterscotch Shiraz, Coffee Pinotage, and Vanilla Cabernet to name but a few. Compliment your meals with our exclusive spices, infused salts, sauces, hand-made chutneys, and pickles. Corne always try to source or produce something different and likes to experiment with taste and combinations.
The Deli also caters to those with a sweet tooth with home-made Turkish delight, toffees, sweets, biscuits, rusks, and other goodies. “We have daily fresh cake and Corne’s delicious milk tart recipe is the best-guarded family secret in the Western Cape.”
