The Bell's Head Chef Karol Shares His Work Experience In One Of The World's Top Restaurants

Karol has 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 last Friday 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 in The World's Best Restaurants, Karol started work in the kitchen on Monday 6th November.
