Mole poblano is a mildly spicy Mexican meat dish with chocolate! Yes, you heard that right. This is our guide on how to make one with beef.
Compared to most chefs, Johan may have had a bit of a late start, only entering the industry when he was 28. He started out as a chef at a chateau in France, where he fondly remembers the time spent wandering through the kitchen garden, a basket of vegetables and herbs on his forearm, carefully picking fresh produce for the day. These days, Johan heads up the kitchen at Vrede en Lust’s Lust Bistro & Bakery, cooking and baking (make sure that you taste the sourdough!) fresh and fuss-free fare at one of the most renowned eateries in the foodie centre of Franschhoek. We visited his kitchen and he cooked us a delicious chocolatey treat with a bite, chicken mole nachos!
