Executive chefs, Chris Erasmus, of the award-winning Foliage Restaurant, and Ashraf Arendse of Dash Restaurant & Bar have fused their unique culinary artistry and shared philosophy for ethically-sourced ingredients to create an inspired, farm to fork menu exclusively served at Dash Restaurant & Bar.

The menu – certain to chisel gratification on epicurean palates – celebrates the genesis of fresh, local ingredients and honours its cultural influences. This gastronomic duet unifies both chefs’ passion for recognising the intrinsic disposition of ingredients alongside their insatiable creativity – further bringing prominence to their collective culinary mastery.

A perfectly curated smorgasbord of sustainable, fine-dining fare fused with the finest local and seasonal ingredients has been meticulously designed to create a narrative around the evolution of food – with each dish being a transcendent testimony to its origin.

Says MD of Newmark Hotels, Reserves, Lodges and Residences, Neil Markovitz: “Food is a universal language, serving as the meeting point in bringing people together. It’s been a phenomenal opportunity to partner with Chef Chris, whose continued pursuit to create exemplary dishes from local, seasonal ingredients takes the field-to-fork philosophy to an entirely new level. Together, with our own, Chef Ash, of Dash Restaurant & Bar, we believe this culinary collaboration will move the needle in experiential dining at Dash and across the industry.”
