In this issue’s, 14 days in South Africa, written by Larry Olmsted, we make an appearance in day two. Here’s the excerpt:

“Return to Franschhoek in the afternoon with some time to relax before tonight’s main event, the nine-course, three-and-a-half-hour dinner at The Tasting Room in Le Quartier Français. Widely considered South Africa’s finest restaurant, The Tasting Room perennially makes the vaunted San Pellegrino “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” list,and is the highest ranked eatery on the entire African continent. Chef Margot Janse was named South Africa’s Top Chef 2012 (again), and her African inspired Surprise Menu features gourmet takes on local specialities, such as kingklip, a delicious fish rarely seen outside southern Africa, all paired with local wines. Many of the herbs and vegetables are grown in the inn’s extensive gardens, and this is truly one of the world’s great meals.”

Thank you very much for the wonderful mention!

“I always get asked the question what the difference is between male and female chefs is, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s actually a very sexist question. Food is determined by the person cooking it and gender doesn’t come into that. It’s as simple as that.” – Margot Janse
