Compared to most chefs, Johan may have had a bit of a late start, only entering the industry when he was 28.

This dish pairs surprisingly well with the vineyard’s Pierre Jourdan Bell Rose, and we enjoyed a glass or two with our meal as cellar master Takuan explained to us that you can serve sparkling wine with almost anything, should you be worried as to what to give your guests to sip at dinner.
