Taste Art at LOKAL (H on the map)

Lokal BbosLOKAL is a pop-up restaurant venue in Baardskeerdersbos run by Lainy and Stanley Carpenter, where once a month chef Suzi Holtzhausen works her magic on local produce. During the March Art Route, Suzi will create a magnificent 4 course menu, inspired by particular artworks from Baardskeerdersbos artists. The actual artworks will be for sale and displayed at the venue. This will be your chance to feast your senses and literally … taste art.
There will be 3 menu sittings over the weekend:
Early and Late Lunch on Saturday and Late Lunch on Sunday
Pre-booking is essential as numbers are limited. or 082 909 0512.
LOKAL strives to cook only local produce:
Growing as much as possible in their own garden & sourcing the rest from the immediate area, preserving what is not used fresh, by drying, bottling, curing, salting and pickling for future monthly pop-up menus.
Olive oil pressing and wine making take place on the family’s neighbouring farm.
Local wines & other specialty products from small producers are also available for purchase.
