The Peninsula All Suite Hotel on Cape Town’s Atlantic seaboard has recently appointed Cape Town-born Anees Behardien as head chef!

Having joined the hotel last year, he was quickly promoted from junior sous chef to sous chef and now heads up the kitchen at the hotel’s Sunset Restaurant.

He began his culinary career as a trainee chef at the Au Jardin restaurant in the Vineyard Hotel & Spa where he spent three years before gaining international experience at Admiral’s Cove Country Club in Florida, USA. On returning to Cape Town, he spent another four years as chef de partie at The Vineyard before joining the Peninsula.

Behardien said:

It is an honour to be appointed head chef at the Peninsula as the hotel constantly strives to develop young talent. It has been a fulfilling and inspiring journey so far and I look forward to new opportunities ahead based on culinary excellence.”

Congratulations Anees!
