In the glamorously frenetic world of London hospitality, two extraordinarily different souls came together to cause a delicious, dynamic fusion of the most chic French flair with a rustic South African approach to experimental food science and a passion for conjuring new combinations of world flavours – all underpinned by classic French styling and a commitment to authenticity.
Hailing from the French island of Corsica, Agnes personifies all that is sophisticated, delightful and elegant. She gives her guests, not simply a gastronomic adventure, but an exquisite experience for all the senses that linger long after the last mouthful, exemplifying her maxim that service should not only be efficient, but delivered with impeccable heart and style.
Jonny finds his roots deep in the soil of Citrusdal: a boere-seuntjie with international experience, a thirst for knowledge and unendlingly delighted by blending South African and French flavours. Inspired principally by South African cuisine and the acclaimed food scientist, Harold McGee, Jonny uses physics, passion and sheer creativity to bring truly heavenly gourmet to the Manna table.
