La Petite Colombe
Franschhoek, South Africa
John Norris Rogers is the man behind the eminently Instagrammable food at this little sister to the acclaimed La Colombe. Having completed a one-year internship at La Colombe and undertaken a stint at Oslo’s Michelin three-star Maaemo, Norris Rogers’ seven-course ‘Gourmand’ menu showcases his innovative technique. Vibrant plates – including the likes of Mauritian sea bass with aubergine, squid, mussel, leeks and chorizo – come interspersed with zingy palate cleansers. For an additional $5, diners can meet the chef, enjoy a dish in the kitchen and watch the young brigade in action.
