Food is nourishment, both for the body and for the soul. It is a basic need, but also a form of art. Since eons ago, food has always been a sure way to assess the level of civilization and cultural progress of any people. And nowdays, thanks to the globalization, food has become a cultural phenomena. The different cuisines have attain global reach, leading to the appearance of Italian high cuisine restaurants in Japan, Vietnamese street food trucks in the middle of Time Squares and French chocolateries in South Africa.
This abundance of styles and options, has increased the level of competition in the field, turning quality and excellence into a must for every single person involved in the complex cuisine industry. One of the prime examples of introducing quality into a very demanding market is Myatt Café of South Africa. With a culinary proposal that brings reminiscences of Paris alluring chocolateries and small coffee terraces, the Myatt Café is a force to be reckoned with talking about desserts in Cape Town.
Offering a wide range of chocolate based desserts, muffins, cupcakes and bombons, this boutique café is gathering the right kind of attention for their commitment to quality and the almost obsessive dedication his chef shows towards detail in everyone of its preparations. Without any doubt, one of Myatt Café flagships, is its amazing macaroons.
Will you like some heaven with your tea?
Can you imagine the difficulty and craftsmanship behind the internationally famous French epic-level pastry named macaroon? Very well now imagine the complexity of capturing a flavour so delicated, so tender, as it is the taste of roses. Maytta Café has had the courage to combine this two titanic accomplishment into one astonishing trick properly named: rose macarons. To topple with this sublime creation, Myatt Café has collected another small pieces of heaven among which you could find: mocca, honey and saffron, pistachio and blueberry macarons, to name only a few. Special mention deserves the passion fruit macaroon, a magnificent combination of european arts, and tropical fruits, proving that excellence can be achieve with local products.
But if macarons is not your thing -we couldn’t imagine why, but nonetheless- you can try out the extensive chocolat offer ranging from bonbons to muffins and, of course, cakes. Names like Banoffee and Chocolate Dense, are but the sweet prelude to a total immersion into chocolate goodness. Maytta Café has a broad selection of finely crafted, artisan products. Elaborated under the most strict high level pastry. Showing how a top notch chocolaterie is possible outside Belgium and France.
