La Petite Colombe marked its one-year anniversary this spring with a new menu. Still available, it’s a splendid showcase for the talented head chef John Norris-Rogers and his dedicated team.

La Petite Colombe is located alongside Leeu Collection’s La Quartier Français Hotel, in the beautiful winelands town of Franschhoek.

Under the leadership of Norris-Rogers, the past 12 months have already seen La Petite Colombe receive its fair share of nominations and awards, including Conde Nast’s Best Hotel Restaurant, a nomination from American Express Diners Club, and the title of Eat Out’s Best New Restaurant in 2017.

Says Norris-Rogers, “Being the sister restaurant to the world-renowned La Colombe comes with a certain amount of pressure. Set against exceptionally high expectations, I’m particularly proud of what our team at La Petite Colombe has accomplished, and the skills each team member brings to the restaurant. We have had a great year to date and were completely humbled by the response to our opening, and will continue to strive to deliver the very best guest experience.”

Norris-Rogers is quick to emphasise the role each of his team members has played in their success and representing the philosophy behind La Petite Colombe – with Andrew Duff proving to be instrumental in his role as Front of House Manager, and Andrea Bruce’s influence as Head Pastry Chef extending well beyond her section.

Taking inspiration from each season and the best available produce, the La Petite Colombe team has been working on a fresher menu for Spring, with a lighter touch that suits the warmer days ahead. Comments Norris-Rogers, “I’m currently developing a fresh oyster dish using elements of gazpacho, jalapeño and shiso that I can’t wait to share with diners.”

Norris-Rogers concludes, “Personally, this year has had it all! Challenging, exciting and a true eye-opening experience. It’s been a fantastic year of learning and I look forward to what is in store for La Petite Colombe in the future.”
