Mention Weylandts & one automatically thinks decor, decor, decor, with an extra side of – yup – more decor. You would be correct my little plum tarts, you would be correct. But with every good decor store comes The Kitchen space. No, I’m not talking about simple kitchen decor, more so an actual space where one can nibble after a hard hour or two of decor perusing. Even if you don’t peruse & simply choose to come for a nibble – well that’s also allowed because The Kitchen will kick you into gear for the rest of your day.
The Kitchen is where Weylandts flaunts their foodie colours – a Fusion Bistro where good coffee & good food is king within their Durbanville, Green Point, Kramerville & now, Fourways stores. Seasonality is a big factor, loaded with free-range produce, along with wine, lemon juice & olive oil, all produced on the Weylandts’ Franschoek family farm – Maison.
A media lunch was set-up for the Jozi contingent to sample the goods at the latest The Kitchen space, situated within the Fourways store. A bit of a feast was on the cards, prepared by Head Chef, Charlene Pretorius, who was about to jet off to Sydney, where The Kitchen will be opening up shortly – impressive.
Platters of salads, glass pots of Lebanese inspired deliciousness & more was served – & it was good, mighty good.
Although I don’t usually only ever pop into Weylandts when sourcing for a shoot, I have to admit that The Kitchen lured me in well & proper with their unpretentious & tasty grub. I’ll be back for coffee & some of that banana cake fairly regularly, in fact, Ill be back for everything – after gym – obviously.
