Those keen for a break over a meal and drinks were spoiled with the show’s two premium offerings. Chef Wandile Mabaso’s Les Creatifs restaurant gave guests a taste of his soon-to-be-launched menu of Franco-African dishes, all prepared fresh on order. Designed by PG Interiors, the restaurant was a stylish affair, and featured a host of local artist’s works including a new tableware collection by Imiso Ceramics.
A Sowetan born chef, classically trained in French cuisine who has worked the global restaurant scene… it’s not every day you come across such a cross-pollination, but trust us, Chef Mabaso’s food is as unique as his story.
Much like his Sowetan-French journey, Mabaso’s offering to foodie lovers is an innovative but high-end fusion of contemporary South African and French cuisine, using the very best ingredients and treating them with the utmost respect.
Set to open his new restaurant les créatifs (the creatives) at Hobart Grove in Bryanston this July, Mabaso is working with local interior designer Donald Nxumalo on the interior, ceramicist Andile Dyalvane on a bespoke tableware range and artist Layziehound on the artworks, kitchen design and uniforms.
