Chef Bruce left us a great legacy in both his food and his unique venture, The Flagship. This beautiful home that he created, on the shores of False Bay, will continue to offer a superb chef's table with Duncan Doherty as a testament to all that he stood for. Introducing Duncan Doherty. Duncan hails from the gourmet capital of Franschoek. An acclaimed chef, he has a diverse portfolio that includes Haute Cabriere, Fancourt, The Lanzerac Hotel and the Graham Beck Wine Estate. Most recently his celebrated 6 course tasting menu paired with champagne, has been described as an explosion of tastes. This is a man who loves seafood, champions sustainable produce and guarantees culinary entertainment in his own inimitable style. Five course Chef's Table Seafood Lunch with wine pairings - a piece of culinary theatre! Your experience starts with a glass of bubbles to accompany the first of your 5 courses with wine tasters, finishing some 3 hours later with a sublime dessert. This is a 'Bucket list' occasion for people who love seafood, wine and engaging with others. From the moment you arrive there is an air of excitement and experimentation and the feeling that you've landed somewhere special!
