A Unique Cooking Experience at La Residence

La Residence

Get to know Chef Granville Riffel –

“I was locally born and bred in Franschhoek. I grew up on a farm, where my grandparents had livestock, and grew seasonal fruit vegetables. The love for sharing food and my local traditions comes from seeing how my father and his siblings were taught by their parents. They learned how to make the best of what little they had, and still be able to share. This philosophy was planted in me like a seed – the importance of generosity, sharing and love.

Food has a totally different meaning for me; it goes much deeper than just having been taught how to cook – it’s about understanding and appreciating cooking, and what it mean to share this knowledge with colleagues and our guests at La Residence.”

Franschhoek is the culinary capital of South Africa, and is home to experiences ranging from contemporary tasting menus to more hearty, traditional meals.
Now we’re giving you the chance to add your own unique twist to this amazing culinary heritage.
