After the runaway success of everything South African born chef, Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen touches, he ventures into the sphere of a luxury bi-annual publication, simply entitled JAN the JOURNAL.

With Michelin stardom under his belt, this 250-page visual feast will take readers through his travels, lifestyle and above all else, an epicurean journey of discovery. The emphasis on what we eat and where is comes from also incorporates a special focus on South African ingredients and recipes.

A collector’s item, over 50 recipes and pictures to make you salivate are encapsulated as only Jan can do. “Nothing celebrates life-like the act of dining” says Jan. “Setting a table with flowers and candles for the sole purpose of gathering together allows us to reflect on everything that is beautiful about life.”
