Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands has appointed an up-and-coming young chef, Boldwin Barlow who gives home style cooking a run for its money.
Barlow draws his inspiration from traditional home cooking to Cape-style dishes and seafood, which he then fuses with French elements.
Hailing from the West Coast of South Africa, the 27-year-old’s cooking style shows a passion for bold innovation and a penchant for creative fusion which is inspired by both French traditions and the local cuisine of his home region.
Barlow says he places a particular emphasis on detail and enjoys fish for its diversity and versatility.
“There is so much you can do with seafood and it can make for a truly mind-blowing food experience. When it comes to ingredients, it is important to think rather than just throw various elements onto the plate. Food creation at Park Inn by Radisson Cape Town Newlands opens up the door for me to use my traditional home style cooking and create real hearty dishes for our customers,” he says.
