Jan Hendrik Van Der Westhuizen
Jan Hendrik’s visionary leadership attracts attention because it changes the game. His humble South African origins provide the perfect platform for Jan Hendrik to generate ideas that surprise people with a new perspective.
It’s this quality that earned Jan Hendrik South Africa’s first Michelin star, awarded to JAN Restaurant in Nice in 2016 and 2017. Seasonal eating and escapism (culinary and cultural, armchair or actual) make this Boereseun and his French twist on Boerekos, relevant and aspirational.
Jan Hendrik’s talents extend beyond the kitchen. A gifted photographer, food stylist, writer, entrepreneur and businessman, he dreams big.
