South Africa’s first Michelin star chef, Jan-Hendrik van der Westhuizen, launched his own television series, JAN at the Inner City Ideas Cartel Auditorium and Cartel Rooftop venues in Cape Town on Tuesday 24 October. The series was produced by Carien Loubser and her fabulous team from Brainwave Productions, who also produced the NVD Property promotional video.

The show aired on Via TV (Channel 147 on DSTV) on Tuesday 24 October at 19h30. For those of you who cannot wait for the next episode, you can also view it on Showmax – episode 3 will be available from tomorrow already.

I’m completely hooked – it feels like you’re travelling with Jan-Hendrik and experiencing these fabulous locations and meals with him. The soundtrack is also to die for! 

“Guests at my restaurant should not only say they enjoyed eating there; they must say they had a great experience,”

“The same goes for the series: we are taking the viewers on a visual and sensory journey. If viewers feel that the programme was an experience for them as well, then we have done good work.” – Jan-Hendrik
