CNN has named La Tête restaurant, situated on Bree Street in Cape Town, as one of the hottest restaurants in the world to look out for in 2017. What sets La Tête apart from local counterpart and puts it on par with global restaurants is that its menu changes daily but will include plates such as crispy pig tails.
Farm-to-fork eatery La Tête is headed up by Chef Giles Edwards, who creates food from the whole carcass, with nothing wasted.” “It’s great to get such recognition so early on from a media organisation with CNN’s reach and influence,” says Edwards.
“We’ve already had international visitors flocking in, and going away happy and satisfied with what we do. Our style of cooking seems to have hit the spot.”
He added that the locals are also discovering and enjoying his nose-to-tail cuisine. “We’ve had a great response from locals. Our food is simple, the freshness and honest flavours are paramount in each dish.”
Prior to opening La Tête, Giles ran a pop-up called Salt Cellar, in Woodstock.
