About The Larder at Block and Chisel

The Larder at Block and Chisel is a testament to the unadulterated goodness of locally sourced ingredients that are presented in their naturally beautiful colours and forms. Based in Diep River, Cape Town, The Larder is run by Sonja Edridge, who has a wealth of experience.

She graduated from London’s Leith’s School of Food and Wine with merit, and then travelled to various places in Europe before returning to London to work on Light Lunch and The Italian Kitchen on Channel 4. Sonja has also been a food editor for a number of large supermarket publications (such as Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer), and she has photographed food for the likes of Jamie Oliver and Jonathan Lovekin. Those who have sampled her meals include Johnny Depp and the Queen of England.

This experience puts Edridge in the ideal position to showcase food in its most beautiful and delicious forms. The menu is a wonderland of choices for foodies that share Sonja’s appreciation of all things delicious. Breakfasts range from poached eggs and wild mushrooms on toast to cinnamon buns and buttermilk scones. There are more traditional options (like bacon, eggs and roast tomatoes), as well as novel options, like smoked salmon and lemon cream cheese, or a vegetable frittata.

Lunches and dinners change with the seasons, depending on the variety of vegetables, herbs and other delights that are locally available. Vietnamese curries, homemade burgers, and poached salmon with beet hummus are all favourites that have graced the menu.

The homemade lemonade with mint or one of the fresh-pressed juices are fortifying, while the choice of coffees is always a winner. The cakes are decadent, the perfect complement to a hot cup of joe. The Larder is licensed, and now offers a choice of organic wines and craft beers.

The vibe of The Larder at Block and Chisel is tangible. It is relaxed and homely, while maintaining a heartbeat that is irresistible to the regulars.
