Franschhoek Wine Valley

Margot Janse – a Franschhoek legacy in her own right

Over the course of 21 years Executive Chef and Franschhoek local, Margot Janse has created a name for herself both locally and abroad, collecting top accolades for her much loved African-inspired cuisine. Her passion for food played a vital role in putting The Tasting Room at Le Quartier Français firmly on the culinary map.

Margot is without a doubt in a league of her own, having pioneered tasting menus in South Africa, challenging tastebuds of diners from around the globe to explore the wonders of indigenous ingredients.

Her passion and creativity have no boundaries and will always be remembered for her adventurous spirit both in and out of the kitchen. It is with great sadness but also with pride that the Franschhoek Wine Valley bids Margot farewell and wish her and her young son, Thomas, all of the best for the future.
