Jandri Niemand is the Executive Chef of fine dining restaurant Amuse-Bouche, which is part of the luxurious Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa in Johannesburg. We asked chef about his influences, how he went from art to cooking, and where he looks to for inspiration.
When Chef Luke Dale-Roberts announced he as leaving The Saxon, people wondered what would happen to the restaurant. Well, come meet Chef Candice Philip (a 13-year Saxon veteran who has worked with Chef Luke and Chef David Higgs during that time), who recently opened the doors to her own restaurant, Grei.
What happens when you take a reputable South African chef like David Higgs and a dynamic entrepreneur who both share the vision of wanting to shake up Johannesburg’s restaurant scene? You get Marble - a stunning restaurant that turns South Africa’s humble love of cooking over fire into a sophisticated dining experience.
