Vegan and fine dining may not be words you hear in the same sentence all too often. To be fair, there’s little high end about fruits and vegetables. However, when it comes to fine dining, we move beyond the food – taking meals to a whole new level. Here colour, texture, plating, and a wild fusion of flavours are brought together, and the result is nothing less than pure art. And nobody grasps this concept better than Quartermain’s resident chef, Tristan Latouf. At a time when veganism is more common than ever, but restaurants are yet to supply the demand adequately, Tristan is serving up inspired vegan creations that will leave you wanting more.
Tristan’s shift to adopting veganism was entirely health-related. He firmly believes in the magical detoxing qualities of an animal-free diet. What’s more, he’s made it part of his career to provide diners with the opportunity to experience this magic for themselves. Not that there’s anything wrong with grabbing a quick bite from a vegan food truck or café, but there’s something to be said for having a full-course vegan meal served up by an actual chef that gets our tastebuds going. That’s because Tristan has a knack for taking the ordinary and turning it into a full-blown eating experience. In fact, he admits to losing sleep with the way his mind is always working on new things to try every day.
Add to that the stunning atmosphere of the Quartermain, and you’re set for fine vegan indulgence the likes of which you’ve never had before. The ingredients are simple, sure, but that only means we are able to highlight the delectable flavours even more. Consider tasteful elegance and tantalising flavours, made from only the highest quality fresh produce. Specialities that include pan-fried cauliflower steak, roasted beetroot risotto, and Sicilian caponata are sure to delight. But more than this, Chef Tristan’s creations will open your eyes to a whole new way of ‘doing vegan’.
So here we are, actively debunking the myth that there’s nothing gourmet about veganism. A glance at our menu is enough proof of the transformation that happens in Tristan’s kitchen. With painstaking attention to detail and decades of training, he serves perfection that is as beautiful as it is delectable. But of course, we might be a little biased.
