Chef Louise Gillett loves to shake, stir and sear the fresh farm produce she forages and harvests all over Bartholomeus Klip, along with the regional delicacies she finds on her Swartland explorations and the classic cooking techniques she keeps up her sleeve. Her farm-meets-fusion-style cooking is a permanent challenge to excite the palate and senses, and to match a carefully chosen regional wine selection at our Conservatory Restaurant.
