SOUTH AFRICA NOW HAS A RESTAURANT RATING THAT EQUATES TO GLOBAL STANDARDS
JHP GOURMET GUIDE ™ top restaurants, their chefs and their recipes
Discover South Africa’s top restaurants from haute cuisine to hot-and-happening. The guide navigates readers from major cities through country escapes en route, highlighting gourmet getaways, refined dining and fabulous food. A map, directions and GPS co-ordinates will get the reader there and a QR code links them directly to a restaurant’s website. This beautiful hard cover keepsake guide will also be used as a memento of these ‘travels’ in the recipes supplied by featured chefs. The guide is impartial and unbiased as there are no hotel or restaurant advertisers in it.
The inaugural JHP Gourmet Guide™ will be launched at the Good Food & Wine Show at the CTICC on 27 May 2016 where top featuring chefs will be collecting their awards between 10h00 and 16h00. After the launch books will be sold (R299) in all leading book stores and will thereafter be available in e-book format.
THE ‘PLATING’ RATING
A panel of local and international professional gourmets anonymously evaluated these establishments, taking into account innovation, consistency and service in addition to a wide spectrum of gourmet and sensory criteria. The top 21 restaurants will receive one or two plates in a unique ‘plating’ evaluation system. A one-plate award is for excellent cuisine, a top-quality eating experience. Two plates are awarded for exceptional destination dining – extraordinary cuisine that warrants a special trip. As consistency is such an integral part of performance in the restaurant industry, three plates will only be awarded to some or all of these restaurants for upholding and elevating their standards, in the future.
