A Chef for the Books
Johannesburg’s flagship eatery, View Restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, has fast become a favourite fine dining destination for Joburg’s most discerning foodies since opening its doors in 2014. Head Chef Farrel Hirsch – who has worked alongside some of Europe and South Africa’s most acclaimed chefs, including Luke Dale-roberts – now brings his exuberant mix of passion and experience to the helm of this esteemed kitchen. The 30-year-old studied professional cookery in Nottingham, and was declared runner-up for the city’s 2008 Young Chef of the Year competition. “While I see my role as building on the stellar dining experience created by my predecessor, I do have a few changes of my own up my sleeve,” Hirsch says. Our mouths are watering already. For more information, visit www.viewrestaurant.co.za.
