SIMON WILKINSON REVIEWS AFRICOLA

SIMON WILKINSON
The Advertiser

"Africola is part food / beverage / good times; part culinary archaeology. It’s a memory trip for the chef siphoned through a career in modern fine dining, and what comes out at the other end is unique. Welgemoed wears his heart on his sleeve that gives Africola so much soul, so much substance. As we said, unique."

Africola voted SA’s top restaurant

Nigel Hopkins

"Ask and you’ll find it all has a link to the chef’s home, his narrative. Welgemoed does beauty. He does power. He does storytelling. He does direct. He’s a Hemingway of a chef. And Africola might be his first great novel."
