Within Cape Town’s crowded and critically demanding restaurant scene, Dash at the Queen Victoria Hotel in the Waterfront, is currently rated as one of the best in the city. Dash is now excited to announce the appointment of Stellenbosch born and bred Germaine Esau as its new Executive Chef. Arguably one of the most innovative chefs in the country, Germaine is described as a visionary genius and someone who can create combinations and masterpieces that other chefs would not attempt. “I come from a family of brilliant cooks and have always loved cooking. As a young boy I used to help my father create new dishes in the kitchen and this is probably where my passion for cooking was sparked, “says Germaine.

Germaine, who initially studied Geology, decided to enter the Chefs Secret competition in 2008 during his final exams and, to his surprise, he won. The prize was a fully paid bursary to study at ICA for 2 years. “I enjoy competitions”, explains Germaine, “because they challenge my culinary ability, creativity, and basic cooking techniques.” Read more Dash Restaurant has a new Chef
