About Marthinus Ferreira
Marthinus returned to South Africa to open his establishment, Dw eleven – 13 in Johannesburg, and has had the pleasure of seeing the country’s food industry grow and level up to international standards which he was already accustomed to.
Gary Jordan proudly states “Marthinus has made a name for himself as one of South Africa’s top creative and inspiring chefs. It is therefore quite apt that 10 years ago already George Jardine and Marthinus Ferreira, two of my favourite chefs in the world, cooked together for my birthday celebration in Johannesburg. This friendship continues today.”
Marthinus will continue to use his finely tuned skills but maintain a strong focus on homegrown farm-to-table, ethically sourced meat from local farmers, and the freshest seasonal ingredients.
Jordan wines will be available by the glass and bottle, including older vintages and rare finds, with a selection of fine wines from neighbouring estates, and wine various regions within South Africa.
