Head Chef and owner Giles Edwards takes us on a visual journey through his day at La Tête, Cape Town’s nose-to-tail eatery that’s all about quality.
La Tête, a no frills no fuss nose-to-tail restaurant in lower Bree Street is perhaps most loved for serving “simple” food – a few ingredients, prepared exceptionally well. Owner and Head Chef Giles Edwards, drawing from his experiences in famed international kitchens like 1 Lombard Street and, inspired by the nose-to-tail philosophy of Fergus Henderson at St John Restaurant in London, offers a dining experience that is less about fancy plating (you’ll find no foams or smears here) and all about excellence – from sustainable, seasonally sourced ingredients to honouring the whole animal.
Giles invites you to a day in his kitchen, as he prepares food with the same passion that he has for serving people high-quality fare, all while running an Eat OUT Top 20 restaurant.
