AVANT-GARDE RESTAURANT AT HAZENDAL

Avant-Garde, which refers to new and experimental ideas and methods in art, music, or literature, is also finding expression in the kitchen of Hazendal’s fine dining restaurant, under the hands of Executive Chef Michélle Theron.  Avant-Garde Restaurant is pushing boundaries through its contemporary and creative interpretation of South African and Russian recipes and the fusion of these two cultures to create culinary art. With a focus on the quality of the ingredients, each exquisite creation is framed, so to speak, by an accompanying wine list that showcases Hazendal’s fine wines, in addition to labels from neighbouring wineries in the famed Bottelary area.
