Martin is the new chef on the block, recently appointed Executive Chef of La Parada Bree Street and will soon head up both La Parada Bree & Constantia Nek, scheduled to open in September 2016. With previous experience at Cape Grace Hotel and The Showroom Restaurant, under Bruce Robertson, he developed a flair for perfectly compiling flavour combinations. Recently he established a name within the catering industry particularly being known for his incredible creations as a prominent pastry chef creating superb wedding cakes. He has now stepped in as Head Chef and has curated the latest La Parada menu offering, which in keeping with the Spanish influence of the tapas menu, has focused on fresh South African ingredients to create dishes which are not only delicious but picture perfect in presentation.
With Senekal’s key eye for detail and a perfectionist nature, this menu promises not to disappoint. The La Parada menu offering retains a few favourite crowd pleasers with a fresh spin, and new restaurant signature dishes have been added namely the smoked tomato salad, seared sesame crusted tuna, pork belly and the heavenly apple and walnut donut dessert topped with a coconut macaron. Senekal ensures that he maintains and showcases the natural flavours of the freshest ingredients – all sauces, dressings and desserts are all made in-house.
