Experience Chef Tiaan’s Food Studio at Spier


Professional kitchen and interactive food studio on Spier’s Werf.

This modern farm kitchen is housed in an historic farm building, The Old Kitchen, on Spier’s newly restored Werf.

Spier, together with culinary pro, Chef Tiaan, invites editors, photographers, stylists and corporates to collaborate on food-focused projects and experiences. Chef Tiaan, a recent winner of KykNET’s Kokkedoor 2013, and a judge on KykNET Kokkedoor, is all about keeping it local. Having been a professional chef for the last 10 years, he’s worked with some of South Africa’s culinary elite, including names like Bertus Basson and Margot Janse.

At Spier, he’s surrounded by furnishings and professionally equipped cooking stations that will make your food event or production slick and seamless.

There’s a breakaway lounge, a stoep to step out onto and connect over sundowners or coffees, and the farm’s veggie garden on the side.

Chef Tiaan’s Studio offers a fusion of new ideas and contemporary culinaria, in a historic context.

The offering can be sliced up any which way.
