Why trout on the menu?


Chefs in the industry prefer trout on the menu for a variety of practical reasons. “What I really like about trout on my menu, is that our foreign visitors know exactly what they are getting,” says Misty Mountain’s chef Cletos Chiteza.” It appeals to the health conscious and the general fish lover but also to clients with cultural or religious preferences. It is suitable for breakfast, lunch, dinner and functions. And best of all – it is locally available all year round with reliable delivery after a single phone call to Lunsklip.”


Many caterers use it as an affordable salmon replacement and the processed products make for convenient, easy starters and canapés. Cool Cuisine caterer Bevvie Marais from Kook, lists filled pancakes, crostini’s, mousse and trout pies amongst her popular catering favourites.
