I see your upcoming tours are all sold out. Can you let me know when the next one will be?

Of course we can! Just send us your name and email address and we'll be in touch. Another way to stay in the loop is to subscribe to our newsletter, which won't only tell you about Jan-Hendrik's upcoming tours, but also about awesome giveaways, new recipes and plenty of ways to get inspired.

When are you doing a Chef's Table in Potchefstroom?

Because Jan-Hendrik lives in France, his time in South Africa is usually quite limited. For this reason, his Chef's Tables take place in carefully selected venues around South Africa where he can ensure that his guests get the best from the experience. If you would like to find out more about how to arrange a Chef's Table for your clients or friends, let us know and we'll be happy to help.

A friend recently gave me two lobsters after a trip to the West Coast. What's the best way to cook them?

While Jan-Hendrik would love to help you cook such a generous gift, the challenge is where to find the time? Sometimes we might get back to you and other times your question might inspire a new recipe, so keep a close eye on our blog!

I'm coming to Nice in June and have already booked my table at JAN. Can't wait! Do you have any suggestions about where to stay?

In a word, yes. But there are also some great websites who know a lot more about how to cater to your needs, so don't forget to check them for advice, too. We do care deeply about Nice Tourism and will blog about our favourite accommodations soon. 

I've just finished my culinary training at a culinary school in Durban and would love to work in your restaurant. How do I apply?

There's a lot to be said for following your dream. Restaurant JAN has a small team with a very unique skill set, so our needs are quite specific. But you're welcome to submit your CV.
