TASTE SOUTH AFRICA
TAKING THE FLAVOURS OF SOUTH AFRICA TO THE WORLD
South Africa’s time as an origin of unique and captivating flavours, curated by its passionate food and wine personalities, has arrived. The world is becoming increasingly aware of the original and enticing spectrum of tastes the country’s pioneering chefs, wine-makers, produce-farmers and culinary artists is putting forward on an international stage that has been waiting for these pioneering spirits of taste to arrive.
Under the auspices of Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen and his Michelin-star Restaurant JAN, a brand new concept awaits Europeans and the world whereby fellow friends from Jan Hendrik’s homeland, South Africa, will be joining forces with Restaurant JAN to present a curated flavour and sensorial experience.
In the kitchen four skilled hands will combine in presenting a once-off South African menu of eight courses paired with the very best South African wines. The true flavours and tastes of this diverse country, rich in tradition and heritage with a contemporary pioneering spirit, will be brought to the table using original cooking techniques for which its people are known.

In the true spirit of Ubuntu (compassion and humanity), a percentage of the profits will go to a charity.
‘Frank Zlomke in South Africa, Marco Pierre White and Giorgio Locatelli in England, Joël Robuchon and Anne-Sophie Pic in France… All these highly-renowned chefs, with whom I have either trained or come into contact, are united in their quest for perfection. I share their ideals for gastronomy. If a dish is not at the peak of perfection, it has no right to feature on the menu. It is this constant need that makes us push at the boundaries. At the Cellars-Hohenort, it means that we combine the cream of the finest ingredients to be found in South Africa with modern cooking techniques, not forgetting an environmentally-friendly approach.’
