2009 has seen us introduce our Culinary Concierge programme, including our Mrs. Ndaba initiative, which has met with phenomenal reviews and support both locally and internationally. So far this has been an amazing experience for everyone involved and we plan on ensuring that it continues to be just that. In fact, if you’re interested in experiencing the Culinary Concierge for yourself we have a South African Flavours programme running on Thursday the 10th of December 2009 and a Dessert Me programme running on Thursday the 17th of December 2009.
Margot has continued to impress diners from across the globe with her unique cuisine. She, along with Neil Jewell (Bread & Wine Head Chef and Charcuterie King), Annemarie Steenkamp (the Le Quartier Français Culinary Concierge) and Linda Coltart our exceptional General Manager spent a week wowing palates at the South African pavilion – TTG Plus Sudafrika workshop in Rimini.
The 1st of December sees the launch of Margot’s Business Class KLM menu. This foray into airline cuisine is a very exciting step, both for Margot and for Le Quartier Français, and the official South African launch takes place at Le Quartier on Friday the 27th of November 2009. It’s the only time you’ll ever find an airplane serving trolley anywhere near Margot’s kitchen!
The food related excitement doesn’t stop there because Margot will be preparing the menu she designed specifically for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup draw at the South African Dutch Embassy. It’s going to be a star-studded event (with both local and international celebrities) and Margot’s planned menu is exceptional, quirky and positively unforgettable. We obviously can’t share it now, that would ruin the surprise for guests. But – following the event – we’ll post the menu, along with the inspiration behind the culturally inspired dishes and (of course) pictures.
