South African Chef Kobus van der Merwe is making waves in the international culinary world. He’s been shortlisted for the inaugural World Restaurant Awards set to take place in Paris on Monday.
Van der Merwe’s restaurant “Wolfgat” is located in the popular tourist town of Paternoster in the West Coast.
The restaurant is situated in a 130-year-old fisherman’s cottage that was built on a historic cave called ” Wolfgat”.
Van Der Merwe says, “There’s an element of wild food on the menu. We go picking succulents and wild herbs and seaweeds every morning and they all end up somewhere on the menu, very seasonal. We also try to represent the dramatic transformation in the landscape between winter and summer with what we collect and pick every morning.”
