Daf running Comrades for Mrs. Ndaba Friday

Daf, a friend of mine from Harvard, is running the Comrades Marathon this Sunday. As he runs he’ll be raising funds for Mrs. Ndaba. How Fantastic?

If you’d like to track Daf’s progress, during the 2010 Comrades Marathon, check out our Facebook Fan Page where we’ll be posting regular updates.

Thanks Daf, this is a truly amazing gesture. Good luck from everyone here at Le Quartier Français!

Le Quartier Français Packages – Book Now!

2010 certainly began with a bang. It’s hard to believe that we’re already in the third month of the year. The Christmas and New Year break are now a distant memory, the Soccer World Cup is around the corner and the end of Summer is rapidly approaching.

At Le Quartier Français we know that it’s been three long months since your last real break and we think it’s time you recharged your soul on a mini-break. Pick from our selection of fantastic packages (the stay for 4 pay for 3 is always popular) and book yourself and a loved one, or friend, in for a night or four.

We suggest checking out Franschhoek during the lesser-known months of April and May, it really is spectacular over this time. It’s not too hot, the wind is minimal and it’s far less frantic than during January and February. Plus restaurant bookings are far easier to come by!

To view the various Le Quartier Français packages please visit our website. To book call us on +27218762151. See you soon!


Food 24 Sizzling Chefs Competition

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, which is this Sunday, Food 24 are searching for the most Sizzling South African Chef. In their line up of prospective Sizzlers they’re included Margot Janse and Annemarie Steenkamp (our Culinary Concierge).

Its difficult for men, and some women, to focus on the cooking when Annemarie is in the room.

It's difficult for men, and some women, to focus on the cooking when Annemarie is in the room.

We’d love one of them to win the coveted title of Sizzling South African Chef because, well, a title like that is worth about two months of endless teasing in the kitchen. For them to win we need you to vote.

To vote click here and you’ll find them on the second page of Sizzlers.


Franschhoek Fires

The recent fires we experienced in the Franschhoek Valley (you’ll find pictures here) once again highlighted the amazing support this small town provides.

A number of people chipped in to evacuate farms and homes belonging to people they’d never even met; restaurants prepared and provided meals for the hard working fire fighters and locals once again got involved in the fire-fighting efforts.

In Franshhoek you may not always know your neighbour but, when it counts, they’ll be there to help.

Upcoming Culinary Concierge Adventures

If you’re looking for something a little different, something that isn’t just another cooking class, then you should try one of our upcoming Culinary Concierge Adventures.

This year we have expanded on this concept and we now also create unique Culinary Concierge Experiences tailored to a specific guest’s tastes, interests and the time they have available.

In February we have the following Culinary Concierge Adventures on offer:
