About Us

Chef PETER TEMPELHOFF

At the heart of my food philosophy lies the continuous exploration and re-imagination of the rich food history and heritage of South Africa. Finding inspiration in the abundance and diversity of resources offered by the local landscape – ocean, garden, veld and farmlands.

Chef Farrel Hirsch

I love finding new ‘foreign’ flavours and combinations that I’d never imagined would go well together. It’s not just about coming in for dinner at Greenhouse, it’s about the experience and how you feel during the meal and well after you leave the dinner table.

What matters to us

Conserving ingredient and foraging sustainably, the earth’s top soil is where everything grows. Hyper local plants and ingredients. Foraging on the beach for coastal plants. Food that tell stories, preserving local culture and history.
