Constantijn Hahndiek

Cape Town born Tijn is one of the new generations of chefs who focus on using fresh, local and sustainable ingredients, combined with classical techniques which he learned while travelling abroad to the UK, France and Spain. His cooking has already been heralded by Eat Out, when Hartford House was named in the Top 20 restaurants in South Africa for two consecutive years. Tijn has made his name serving some of the most innovative, elegant and fun food in KZN.

Tijn left Hartford House in February, and has been enjoying some time off, away from the kitchen. "I am constantly learning and experimenting. It's not about finding a recipe and sticking to it, but rather about continually evolving and changing things up. We just need to remember that ingredients are key and so to try and source our ingredients locally wherever possible is what will make the difference. We only get one chance at this life but if we do it right, once is enough!"

Johannes Richter

Johannes Richter

Johannes Richter is the Head Chef at The LivingRoom, a new food sensation to hit Durban, with his focus on “garden to plate” dining and artisanal cuisine.

Johannes, along with his wife Johanna in front of house, has captivated the Durban restaurant scene with “the heart and spirit their hands bring to their food”. His passion for regional products and sustainable philosophies finds him curating menus that will give you “a sense of home away from home”.

Brett Gentles


Brett is one of Durban’s most talked-about chefs, who believes that every meal should be a celebration of life. Parc Café, is a family owned and family run business where everyone is welcome and should feel at home. Formerly the chef at 9th Avenue Bistro, he is passionate about showcasing the finest local products and believes the ingredients should speak for themselves. His approach has been described as: “clever café food that plays with textures and fresh flavours”.
