Chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen needs no introduction to the Eat Out audience. With a passion for all things local, Jan has flown the SA flag high, sharing the flavours of South African cuisine and celebrating his food heritage with the world. He owns JAN Restaurant in Nice, France and Klein JAN at Tswalu in the Kalahari. Jan’s passion and knowledge about dining, restaurants and food make him a stellar addition to the panel of judges for the 2022 Eat Out Woolworths Restaurant Awards.
