Blue Print will leave a footprint on your taste buds

Nestled on the edge of the beautiful, Mediterranean-style Bagdad centre on the outskirts of White River, this hip-and-happening eatery will have you coming back for more.

Blue Print offers a range of fine-dining options, as well as more casual, informal fare, and will cater to every culinary need. They tailor make packages for weddings, christenings, birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas parties and year-end functions, and will accommodate any budget or gastronomic requirement.

High-end, high-profile catering is their speciality, so whatever your dietary requirements, Blue Print will rise to the occasion. They also specialise in team building and cookery demonstrations, specifically for the more corporate market.

Acclaimed chef Pieter Malan has experience in making something spectacular out of nothing, and can turn any event into an extravaganza. His speciality is fine dining with emphasis on molecular gastronomy, but casual and informal is good as well.

Apart from his passion for molecular gastronomy and combining science and food, Pieter is an avid smoker, and has built his own dinosaur for just this purpose. The wine garden, which is sponsored by Nederburg, is the perfect place to while away the hours on a balmy Lowveld afternoon, a pulled-pork ciabatta, fresh from the smoker, accompanied by a chilled glass of your favourite tipple.

So, if a little food theatre is your thing, or you simply want a casual and relaxed afternoon in the Nederburg Heritage Wine Garden, Blue Print is the place to be. By the same token, anything that you can imagine at the restaurant can be yours for a function or party. Big or small, Pieter and his team will fulfil your wildest food fantasies, and then some.

Malan is not only a chef, but also a molecular gastronomy aficionado, using physics and chemistry to transform the tastes and textures of food. He is also a great fan of the cooking method of smoking, cooking anything and everything in this manner.

However, Blue Print does not only cater to the adventurous eater; the restaurant also offers fine dining and a casual wine garden.

As much as possible of the ingredients is locally grown and sourced and everything else is made from scratch, as the emphasises that exceptional quality takes time.
