Tickets for the second leg of the collaboration between South African chef Kobus Van der Merwe, chef of Wolfgat and Belgian Willem Hiele, chef of the restaurant by the same name in Belgium will go on sale on Friday 9 October.
The event, named Two Brothers from Another Sea will take place on 7 and 8 December in Paternoster, South Africa.
The first part of the event took place in June in the Flemish seaside resort, Koksijde.
Thousands of kilometres separate South Africa from Belgium. But the two chefs, brought together by Alexandra Sweden, have a lot in common as was evident in the first performance at Willem Hiele.
The two chefs have a similar passion for the sea and ocean but also the people of their territory and their approach to cooking.
Wolfgat was awarded the Restaurant of the Year and ‘Off-Map destination restaurant at the World Restaurant Awards earlier this year. For the event in Belgium, Margot Janse, a chef who made a name for herself in South Africa was present.
Expect the two chefs to craft a menu from scratch. At the first event, the two had no idea what they would cook 48 hours before the first lunch to the extent that Willem’s wife Shannon had to pair wines at the very last minute.
Online ticket sales for the event open on Friday 9th October at 10am. More details on Wolfgat’s website. In total there will be three performances, a lunch and a dinner on Saturday and a lunch on Sunday.
