On Friday 3rd Nov 2017 Karol made the 8,361 mile journey to La Colombe; one of South Africa’s most iconic and internationally acclaimed fine dining establishments in Cape Town, to join Chef Proprietor, Scott Kirton.
Upon his arrival Karol found his feet sightseeing the magnificent coastal city of Cape Town; the capital and primate city of the Western Cape province.
Eager to start work under Scott's wing in the renowned restaurant, recently voted 7th Best Restaurant in The World, Karol started work in the kitchen on Monday 6th November.
On Friday 26th January Karol created and presented an exclusive ten course tasting menu, including a glass of fizz on arrival and delicious wines recommended and presented personally by Chris Plimmer of Enotria & Co, to an intimate group of diners in the beautiful balcony restaurant at The Bell.
