Summer Food by Tjaart Walraven

Tjaart Walraven may trace his ancestral roots to the North Sea, but his heart is firmly set in Africa – its sun, beautiful scenery, warm hospitality and long summers.
And it’s precisely those seductive, lazy summers that has prompted him to write a cookbook that celebrates our summer lifestyle.

Accompanied by Tjaart’s charming background stories, gorgeous colour photography and packed with tips throughout, his recipes prove that enjoying summer on a plate has never been simpler.

Party Tjaart'd

Not always do we have the privilege of sharing events that get the ‘Party Tjaart’d’ treatment. However we are pleased to release these pictures from an event recently. The event was held over 3 consecutive days for an International client in celebrating a birthday milestone. Chef Tjaart and his team created 4 distinct events with a common thread running throughout. Majority of the guests flew in for this occasion and celebrated in Cape Town, South Africa. A beach setting to a high rise studio in the CBD and finally a wine farm for Sunday lunch.
