Self-taught Chef Michael Broughton believes that a large part of being creative is about exercising constraint and keeping it simple, all the while still delivering dishes that are characterised by bold, punchy flavours that remain true to the original ingredients. In the first episode viewers meet the stars of the show, Chef Michael’s young kitchen brigade. There’s a lot of responsibility on this team’s shoulders, but with Michael leading them, every mistake becomes a learning experience.

The autumn weather sees invitations extended to friends and fellow wine makers who have supported Terroir and the Kleine Zalze Wine Estate over the years. Michael has only three days to create three new dishes and this doesn’t leave a lot of time for trial and error. While it’s one thing winning over customers and tourists, it’s a completely different story to impress some of the area’s best winemakers who are renowned for their exceptional pallets.

It’s winter and as an exercise to keep his kitchen brigade occupied in the week before their holiday, Michael lays down a challenge for his team – a chance to get a dish of their own creation on Terroir’s award winning menu. Michael knows the best way to keep his staff engaged is to call on their natural creative spirit and so he devises a cook-off competition and divides the young chefs into two teams. It’s a big deal for a group of chefs this young, who would never normally have such a chance, and a great opportunity for them to bring their own ideas to the table.

Chef Michael Broughton and his team have been on a brief winter break, but it’s the start of the new restaurant calendar and it coincides with the annual Stellenbosch wine festival. Terroir have been invited to have a stand alongside the Kleine Zalze tasting stall, where they will serve their specialities. For Michael, this is a great opportunity to reach an unprecedented number of people, which means there’s no room for error. But there’s another important event on his calendar: he has to work out a 6-course winter tasting menu (paired with Kleine Zalze wines) for their wine ambassadors as a reward for all their hard work.
