The Mercury, Food & Wine, 27 March 2013
One of the best creative chefs to come out of Durban, Brett Gentles, provided the more-ish petit fours, especially the granadilla sponge with bitter caramel and coconut and the figs with cinnamon and honey almandine. Table talk is that Gentles is opening a new restaurant, parc. cafe, in Glenwood in May.
Having worked with chef Graham Neilsen of 9th Avenue Bistro (my favourite restaurant in the country!), he is venturing into this restaurant business in partnership with his sister Lara Gentles. Brett promises a fresh, young, non-pretentious food place that he refuses to tie down to a type of cuisine. He will be cooking in season with local farmers and artisans.
