Chef Mynhardt Joubert, a popular South African celebrity TV chef, has been cooking from My Station Street Kitchen in Paarl in the Western Cape for the past five years, hosting dinners for paying guests, hosting media launches and using his home as a creative space and photographic studio.
The book, My Station Street Kitchen, is a reflection of his kitchen and the dinners that he hosts there. Mynhardt infuses everything he does with his enthusiasm, exuberance and love of food that incorporates his life experiences, from his childhood on a farm in the Eastern Free State to his travels around the world and throughout South Africa.
Join him in the generous and warm environment of his Station Street Kitchen and create your own culinary delights, prepared with joie de vivre and plenty of love. Contents include Cocktails & Canapés; Breads & Butters; Dressings, Emulsions & Mayo; Salads, Soups & Starters; Main Meals; and Desserts. There are almost 100 recipes for entertaining for all occasions and they reflect Mynhardt’s eclectic taste from the simple to the exotic, from true South African gems to dishes influenced by the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe and Asia. On the premise that you ‘eat first with your eyes’, you can look forward to dishes lavishly styled and photographed.
After establishing a peasant wine bar and eatery, Bar Bar Black Sheep, Mynhardt appeared on our TV screens when he entered kykNET’s reality cooking competition Kokkedoor. This proved to be an experience of a lifetime, and with his cooking partner, they won, going on to publish their first cookbook for the Kokkedoor brand.
Chef Mynhardt believes that there is nothing more satisfying than preparing food with love and seeing how it influences people. Now you can too with My Station Street Kitchen!
