Fine-Dining Cooking Demonstration with Head Chef Farrel Hirsch from Greenhouse at The Cellars-Hohenort

Calling all budding cooks, foodies and master chefs in the making: The award-winning Greenhouse restaurant - one of the top 10 restaurants in South Africa - will be hosting a series of four cooking demonstrations from July through to September 2019, which will be led by Head Chef Farrel Hirsch. The first in the series is set to take place on Saturday, 27 July 2019 from 15h45 onwards.

There will be canapes and bubbly on arrival and the demonstration itself will begin at 16h00 in The Cellars-Hohenort Demonstration Kitchen at The Cellars-Hohenort hotel in Constantia, Cape Town. Participants will learn how to prepare one of Greenhouse’s signature dishes, Game Fish, and gain insights into Hirsch’s techniques.

This very dish will be enjoyed later in the evening, prepared by Greenhouse, as guests progress from The Cellars-Hohenort Demonstration Kitchen to the restaurant itself. Once the demonstration is concluded, guests will enjoy pre-dinner cocktails at the beautifully appointed Greenhouse bar from 17h30 onwards. This will be followed by a seated three-course dinner paired with wine from 18h00 onwards.

The cooking demonstration, dinner, and all inclusions, is priced at R 2 200 per person, with an additional wine pairing option for R 350 per person. Guests will also receive a special gift as a wonderful memento of this special experience in the world of fine dining. As places for the cooking demonstrations are limited, bookings are essential.
