Meet Kelly Liggett....our new Executive Head Chef at River Bend.
Kelly joined our team at River Bend earlier this year, and he has had Guests giving him some well deserved compliments and reviews ever since.
A man of few words (he prefers to let his food do the talking), Kelly joined us from The Cellars Hohenort in Constantia, Cape Town after having had previous experience internationally in the US of A and in London.
Kelly has spent considerable time revamping the Menu with considerable care and thought, stamping our Silver Thorns Restaurant with his very own clean, contemporary fusion style of food preparation and presentation.
When asked who his biggest influences are, he quickly answers that the Chefs he admires most are Marco Pierre White and the Roux Brothers.
Guests at River Bend Lodge will find Kelly remarkably approachable and willing to discuss any personal request with you. His favourite areas of cooking....Game and Desserts!!
