Le Quartier Français and Valentine’s Day

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – 20 days and counting – and that means that it’s time to stock up on Pink bubbly, flowers, cards, chocolate and maybe an original gift or two.

Because nothing says I love you quite like beautiful linen from Mungo Design, a chair by REcreate or a space in the next Dessert Me cooking course.

Actually nothing says I love you like all of the above accompanied by lunch at Bread & Wine – if you’re into long lazy lunches and excellent Môreson wines; or iCi – if you want to experience Franschhoek, scrumptious dining and the best strawberry daiquiris South of the equator.

Le Quartier Français 2009 Review

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

It’s been a busy and eventful year at Le Quartier Français.

Our restaurants have continued to do exceptionally well, with The Tasting Room placing 37 in the World Top 50 and Bread & Wine placing in the Eat Out Top 20. Margot has once again showcased her acclaimed cuisine in countries around the world and last month saw the launch of her KLM Business Class menu – which will be served for the next 10 months in KLM Business Class on all flights leaving Amsterdam.

During the course of this year the Le Quartier Français Auberge received a facelift and we added the Grande Rooms and the Petite Garden Suites to our renowned accommodation. We now offer Le Quartier Français guests the Four Quarters Suites, Auberge Suites, Grande Rooms, Petite Garden Suites and Auberge Rooms. The Tasting Room was also redecorated by well-known Dutch set designer, and Margot’s brother, Herbert Janse.

2009 also saw the release of our Culinary Concierge Concept and Programme, which includes the Mrs Ndaba initiative, and we’re proud to say that it has been met with excellent reviews. We’re also proud to say that through our Culinary Concierge Programme our guests, and Mr Tuesday, are making a significant difference in the lives of 67 toddlers.

2009 hasn’t been an easy year for anyone but it has been incredibly rewarding. Enjoy the last few days of your 2009.

Instead of Christmas Cards and Gifts Programme

Friday, December 18th, 2009

At Le Quartier Français we believe that Christmas is a time for love and magic!

We like to share and give to those that need it most, so we have an ‘Instead of Christmas Cards and Gifts Programme’.

This year we adopted a local crèche – ‘Mrs Ndaba and her children‘ – and created Muffin Friday and the Mr Tuesday Feeding Scheme. The ‘Instead of Christmas Cards and Gifts Programme’ has paid for these children to have their first Christmas party filled with nutritional food, laughter, clothes to take home, cupcakes, sweets and a visit from Santa Claus.

Mrs Ndaba Video

Friday, November 13th, 2009

So many people have expressed an interest in the Le Quartier Français Culinary Concierge Mrs. Ndaba programme that we thought we’d put together a video clip of the Friday Muffin Magic.

If you haven’t had a chance to experience the fabulous Mrs. Ndaba don’t despair, you can still do some good and – at the same time – feel great by joining us on any Friday morning.
