Stephen Mandes - Head Chef at Mondiall
Winner of the 'Ultimate Braai Master' in 2014 (Season 3), Chef Mandes (28) took up the reigns at Mondiall earlier this year (2016). Before that he clocked up extensive experience as chef proprietor of La Vierge Restaurant outside Hermanus. He started his creer working in some of Cape Town's top kitchens, including at the Cape Grace Hotel, the Belmond Mount Nelson, and De Grendel Restaurant, after he completed an Advanced Diploma in Culinary Arts.
Mandes describes his new summer menu as: 'An infusion of international culinary concepts to satisfy the curious palate. I love creating delicious food, but never stick to one template only. My focus is to use top quality produce to create healthy, flavoursome and visually stimulating meals to satisfy both South African and international tastes.'
