Chef Philip Howard joins Chef Margot Janse in The Tasting Room

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Last night we welcomed Michelin-star Chef Philip Howard, chef and co-owner of The Square in London, to The Tasting Room kitchen.

Our first ever guest Chef joined Chef Margot Janse to cook an incredible tasting menu for special guests of Exclusive Books, a culinary highlight of The Franschhoek Literary Festival.

And what a night it was!

From the entire Le Quartier Français family, thank you Chef, it was an honour to have you!

There’s just under two weeks to go until The Franschhoek Literary Festival. There’s so much to see and do, other than the incredible talks; from markets and live performances to gourmet dining and drinking.

We’re also incredibly excited to have Phil Howard hosting his one and only dinner while he’s in the country in The Tasting Room! The invite-only affair is being organised by Exclusive Books and promises to be a show-stopper. Here’s more about Phil, and more about his cookbook.

And… While you’re in town – join us for breakfast/lunch/high tealunchcraft cocktails & bar bites or even pop into our day spa, B.gorgeous!
