About This Project

The Pumpkin Risotto on our winter menu, with pumpkin seeds, sage butter and Grana Padano is named after designer Willem Jacques.

Willem recently shared a little bit about himself in an interview with us;

What was your dream job when you were growing up?

When I was young I wanted to be a pastry chef but the fascination soon disappeared once I discovered fashion.


What is your favourite question to ask a prospective employee?

How do they take their coffee, you can tell a lot from how someone takes their coffee.


What is your favourite leisure activity?

I mostly spend my free time cooking for friends.


Who is your favourite South African designer?

There a few South African designers ie. Drotsky, Missibaba and Adriaan Kuiters.


What is your favourite food to indulge in?

For every day I am a fan of Macaroni and cheese but nothing beats a good old roast chicken made the way my mother does, with lots of love and sides.


 The Willem Jacques is available on the Winter Menu.
