Pretoria News - - Good Life -

CHEF Myn­hardt Jou­bert has been shar­ing his pri­vate space with din­ers for just over a year. Stasie Street Kitchen in Paarl came about af­ter a friend told Jou­bert about this pop­u­lar trend in Europe.

“It was a joint idea be­tween me and Ker­ryn Lan­caster (former KWV brand man­ager) af­ter she re­turned from Paris.

“It’s a very French thing to do, hav­ing peo­ple come to your house to eat and en­joy watch­ing the chef work in his kitchen,” says Jou­bert.

What started as a din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for cor­po­rate events, quickly turned into his home restau­rant as word got out.

Guests re­ceive a wel­come drink af­ter which they can en­joy a gin and tonic in the lounge be­fore sit­ting down for a three or four-course meal.

“I have space for about 30 peo­ple to sit and they can watch us cook and plate their food –

(like a real home visit). We make guests feel wel­come and safe.”
