Grande Provence secures 4th American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award

Celebrating a decade of culinary excellence, The Restaurant at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek has just secured its 4th consecutive American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award.

The Restaurant at Grande Provence opened its doors 10 years ago in 2004 and has excelled as one of Franschhoek’s top fine dining establishments.

“When we received our first American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award in 2011 we realised that the true challenge would be to maintain the level of quality that afforded us the honour. Executive Chef Darren Badenhorst, who joined our team in 2012 has managed to do just that and we are extremely proud of his achievements,” says Grande Provence General Manager and Winemaker Karl Lambour.

Currently in its 17th year, the annual American Express Platinum Fine Dining Awards pay tribute to restaurants throughout South Africa that offer superb culinary experiences, push the envelope in terms of creativity and consistently achieve excellence.

Guided by the culinary mastery of Chef Darren, the team at The Restaurant at Grande Provence draws inspiration from the time honoured practices and precision of French cuisine and combines it with the bold flavours of Asia to create a culinary experience second to none.

“As a fine dining restaurant we have to work hard to ensure a first class culinary experience for every guest, every day. There is no better reward than to be recognised for your efforts buy such a prestigious annual competition. Without the support of the whole team we would not have achieved this award for the past four years running,” says Chef Darren who is very much hands on, plating every dish perfectly, down to the last micro herb before it exits the kitchen doors.
