Join us for a LOVELY SPRING lunch AT
Jan innovation studio!

Since launching our specially crafted lunches in February of this year, we have been overwhelmed by the popularity of our events. Let my team in Cape Town treat you like royalty as you join them for a lovely spring lunch, which I designed and curated closely with them. Enjoy multiple tantalising courses of reimagined home cooking, accompanied by rare and fine wines from across South Africa.

Before dessert, explore the Studio Library’s collection of treasured cookbooks while embarking on a tour du fromage at the cheese table, with a peek into the creative home of JAN the Journal. Then, return to a refreshed dining space where you will be treated to my favourite collection of sweet treats.
