About 

South African-born Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen was raised on a rural farm in the north of the country. After completing an Advanced Diploma in Culinary Arts in Stellenbosch he furthered his studies with a bachelor’s degree in Applied Design and Photography. He worked as a contributing food editor for ELLE  magazine in South Africa and Paris before relocating to Nice to open his own restaurant called JAN. Since its humble beginnings in 2013, JAN has garnered a reputation as one of the top restaurants in the south of France. This is Jan Hendrik’s second book, which continues the journey first started in The French Affair, also published by Struik Lifestyle.
