Laurent Deslandes at Chefs Warehouse.

Chef Laurent Deslandes of Bizerca Bistro, that fine-dining marvel on the Cape Town foreshore, is hosting a class at Chefs Warehouse. Anyone that has eaten at Bizerca will understand why it bustles with regulars day and night: Laurent’s food is undeniably inspired.

The French chef really found his feet in Australia where he lived for ten years and received accolades for his kitchen at the Collits Inn outside Sydney. Since arrival in South Africa and Bizerca opening its doors in 2007, he’s take on food has become somewhat less fussed, focusing on natural produce prepared simply and without pretense. It’s still superb fine-dining, but it’s in a relaxed atmosphere, hence the bistro tag for Bizerca, instead of restaurant. One taste of his pig trotter with seared scallop and truffle oil and you will be hooked.

Guests attending his demonstration evening at Chefs Warehouse on 22nd July will be treated to some of the techniques and ingredients that makes his food so special, along with some superb wines to compliment them. Book a place early or contact us to find out more.
