“Well, these last few weeks have been rather entertaining to say the least. None the less with all life’s ups and down’s its up to us to choose which we rather focus on. I for one would much rather tell you about that one night (a few weeks ago) when I was able to attend my friends official restaurant opening.
Sherwyn Weiach as you have all heard me mention on social media and on here before, has finally officially launched his eatery in the newly built Umhlanga Pearls. Yes it sounds super fancy, and Sherwyns food is super amazing but let’s not forget who Sherwyn is and what his passion is about.
In my mind, I don’t think one could fully appreciate Sherwyn’s meals and enthusiasm without actually sitting with him and or watching him work. He is a master of his own environment, and I love it!
So here are a few words from the team and the man of the hour”….
How did it all begin?
The concept is born by Celebrity Chef Sherwyn Weaich also known to many as The Gourmet Bushie, Nolan Rossouw and Riaan Fortune.
All equal shareholders in what has grown to be the busiest store in the new Pearls Walk Mall. The store has hands on experience with Celebrity Chef Sherwyn having his
watchful eye on the chefs and ensuring that each recipe is just as good as his grandmother’s. DL Boutique and Café officially opened its doors in December 2016 as a result of what Sherwyn describes as “satisfying the need to feed more people”.
There’s also the fact that he is absolutely in love with food. “I always say that I
want food to start the conversation,” he says. “I would wake up to the fresh smell of my mother and grandmothers cooking and just loved the fact that we all grew up around the
table sharing stories.” This awareness of family and food is what ushered him into the culinary industry. Several cooking shows, live performances around the world, and a chef school later, Celebrity Chef Sherwyn is ready for the next course in
his culinary career.
Well I have a host of plans for the Café but with filming starting soon and the show airing on SABC3, I have a tight schedule but lets just say you have to keep watching, liking and sharing.
“I’d like to thank Sherwyn and his amazing team of chef’s and assistants who made the evening a real treat. We were treated to the most amazing dishes, all of which are available on the menu. There was great entertainment through out by two very talented dancers and a DJ.
The eatery is joined with a boutique clothing store, so it truly was the age old saying of ” A Dinner and Show” as we were treated to a fashion show, between meals. Eating as one as I should mention, a great way to get to know everyone as at your table. No plates, just center table treats. It was brilliant.
And of course mingling with Sherwyn and some of our other friends in the open space that has been provided at the eatery was an absolute treat.
Thank you Sherwyn, cant wait to see you again.”
