The Best Restaurant Of The Winelands
Epice - derived from the French word Epice meaning spice (and is pronounced eh-peace) - is an intimate fine dining restaurant located at Heritage Square, Franschhoek (opposite Leeu House) 'The restaurant menu will revolve around spices, but that doesn't necessarily mean spicy hot - think of vanilla and saffron, or cinnamon and nutmeg, too' says Scot Kirton, chef proprietor of La Colombe. Heading up the kitchen, head chef Charne Sampson is no stranger to refined, cutting edge cuisine- until recently she was the sous chef at La Colombe and is another one of Scot's proteges to spread her wings. A graduate of Silwood, Charne also honed her craft in the kitchen of The Restaurant at Waterkloof and The Test Kitchen.
