Hot off the press after his sell-out JAN the Journal Volume 1, Michelin-star chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen thrills readers with yet another compelling, eye-catching and drool-worthy offering of food, lifestyle, stories and incomparable photography in JAN the Journal Volume 2.

Audaciously daring readers to disregard the latest trends, Jan Hendrik challenges the indulgence of suppressed beautification of homes and tables with over-the-top garnishing and ornamentation. “I hope to inspire you to bring back the things that make you happy, like making a cream rose or creating an ornate flourish on a plate, the way we did in the past,” says Jan Hendrik.

In a heartfelt tribute to his beloved late grandmother Maria, who was instrumental in cultivating Jan Hendrik’s love for cooking, he reminisces about her gentle influence in his culinary prowess and shares her delicious recipe for crème anglaise.

The perfect gift for any occasion, whether you require something for Christmas, a birthday or just to add this to your existing JAN collection (there are cookbooks too!), poring over this 300-page nostalgy-filled premier publication will inspire you to be the best epicurean version of yourself.
