The hotel’s culinary team led by Executive Chef Hanroe Erasmus won the best dish award at the Taste of Joburg in October, beating chefs from 13 other top eateries, including three-time winner and Masterchef SA judge Andrew Atkinson. Erasmus’ Kudu Wellington with baby spring vegetables and a port jus came out tops after voting by the 22 000 discerning members of the public who attended the 6th annual event held at Montecasino.
A delighted Erasmus said he was humbled and gratified by the award. “The Kudu Wellington is a dish that I worked at perfecting for a long time, and I think what we presented at the Taste of Joburg Festival made all the hard work worth it.”
