Description


The number of tourists travelling to South Africa in the last decade has steadily risen year upon year, with 16 million visiting in 2019 alone. People are drawn to the country by the culture, landscape and more often than not, the impressive cuisine which reflects nourishment, survival and love.

Wanting to acknowledge his heritage, and frustrated by the tunnel-vision of Michelin star cooking, Duncan has created Africola to encompass the rich and varied flavours of his childhood with a fearless, daring approach.

The food which Duncan cooks is all about using sustainably sourced, low-impact-on-the-earth ingredients (carefully sourced meats, fish, vegetables, grains, pulses, seaweed, algae, shellfish) to create dishes that 'open another box in your palate and in your mind'. There is a slew of intensely flavourful, veg-forward dishes, a culinary encyclopaedia of ferments, condiments and pickles along with a solid pastry section and a bunch of ridiculous cocktails.

With a soundtrack to accompany the cooking, Africola is nothing short of unique, with bold recipes and raw enthusiasm to inspire every chef from amateur to professional.

About the Author


South African by birth, Duncan Welgemoed was head chef at The Goose at Britwell Salome, Watlington, Oxford, when it was awarded a Michelin star in 2005 and has also worked at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. In early 2010, he arrived in South Australia and opened Africola in 2014. Over the years, Duncan has become Adelaide's (un)official spirit animal - mythical beast, troublemaker, conversation starter. His latest restaurant, Africola, tells a story close to his heart. It has since been awarded 4.5/5 Australians by The Australian's food editor John Lethlean, featured in countless magazines, newspapers and TV shows around the world and frequented by rockstars and celebrities alike.

James Brown runs a design agency and has designed the interiors of several iconic venues, including Sydney's Harpoon Harry, Bali's Motel Mexicola (the most instagrammed hotel in the world) and Melbourne's Hotel Jesus. Together, they are a formidable creative force
