Le chêne

Multiple award-winning chef Darren Badenhorst has added to his portfolio by piloting Le chêne in the Manor House, situated at the Five-star Premium Leeu Estates. Badenhorst, already well-known as chef-patron of Le coin Français in the heart of the Franschhoek valley, steers an accomplished culinary team to serve French-inspired dishes made from local produce, honouring Franschhoek’s history with both the name and concept of this unique dining experience.
