THE BIG REVEAL / 22 SEPTEMBER 2017

Sundays are commonly known as an easy, laid back day. Preparing a full-on Sunday roast in the early hours of the morning can be discouraging for some, but for those who have a little trick up their sleeve, they can sleep in and take the family out for a traditional Sunday roast.


However, lovers of a hearty meal know they can’t just go anywhere when it comes to “tradition”, especially if you’re heading to a restaurant. What every diner wants to experience on a Sunday is mouth-watering, seasonal vegetables and succulent meats reminiscent of a grandmother’s love –commonly known as a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal.
 

The Benguela Brasserie’s  Kelly-Anne Pietersen is no stranger to traditionally prepared food. But with this chef there is something different, she adds elements of a French inspired menu to all her dishes.


MEET THE CHEF / 23 AUGUST 2017

Nestled on the edge of the Swartvlei Lake, Benguela Brasserie and Restaurant plays host to the exceptional Chef Kelly-Anne Pietersen.  Her mouth-watering and flavoursome dishes are a highlight along the Garden Route. 

After relocating from the liveliness of Somerset West to the quaint picturesque nature of the Garden Route, Kelly found a new source of inspiration for her gourmet cuisine.  The uniqueness of the small countryside town, Sedgefield, is reflected in her new home style hearty dishes.

After previously being spoilt for choice with exotic & fresh ingredients Kelly has found a creative old school twist for her classical style of French dishes.  By keeping things modern, fresh and consistent she has found a niche for fine cuisine in the region.
