Our Chef

Chef Annelie Badenhorst hails from the beautiful Otjiwarongo in Namibia. Annie’s training in classic French cooking at the Zevenwacht Chef School, combined with her love of comfort food, makes her the perfect fit for Moody Lagoon.

Annie’s career has been very intertwined with that of our other Benguela Dining chefs, namely executive chef Jean Delport at Benguela on Main and executive chef Kelly-Anne Pietersen at Benguela Brasserie & Restaurant.

Annie worked at All Things Culinary and thereafter at Sophia’s Restaurant at Morgenster Wine and Olive Estate. 


What can one expect from Annelie’s kitchen?

Fresh local food, combining interesting flavours to create exciting contemporary and new dishes with a French flair that excite the senses.
