Chef: Ash Heeger
South African Chef Ash Heeger makes her one of Riverine Rabbit's signature dishes - game and beets in this episode of Riverine Rabbit's Masterclass.
This dish doesn't just use local ingredients, it is also done seasonally and sustainably.
Riverine Rabbit also supports local hunters, and because the bucks whom roam South Africa's plains are completely wild, it gives the meat a subtle, tender gameness that is beyond comparison.
About Chef Ash Heeger:
Chef Ash Heeger was born in South Africa, raised in Cape Town and was inspired by the world at large. After completing her studies at the award-winning Silwood School of Cookery, Ash moved onto exciting places with exceptional people. She trained under the acclaimed Chef Luke Dale Roberts at La Colombe and then at The Test Kitchen. Hungry for international influence, she spent time abroad in Michelin 2 star kitchens.
At what would seem to be the peak of her career in the metropolitan capital, London, Ash felt the urge to return to her roots in South Africa. Inspired, Ash brought elite experience, passion and something unique to the Cape Town- her very own ASH Restaurant, Riverine Rabbit with sister Mandy van der Berg in 2018.
