Part coffee-table cookbook, part luxury lifestyle magazine, JAN the JOURNAL is a celebration of South Africa, its cuisine, and life’s most delicious pleasures. Through breathtaking images, stories, profiles and recipes, the JOURNAL takes you on an extraordinary voyage of discovery, exploring the people, places and ingredients behind the food we eat.

Beautifully crafted and printed on the most luxurious paper, the JOURNAL is a visual feast of original stories and profiles, and an extensive collection of recipes, including some of Jan Hendrik’s most innovative creations. 

“I invite everyone to go on this journey with me, dining to honour the life of food, because everything should lead back to the table.” 

Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen
