THERE’S a new face at the award-winning The Pot Luck Club in Cape Town!
28-year-old Head Chef Jason Kosmas took over the kitchen in February 2019 and is already making his mark in a quietly confident way. Previously he was Head Chef at Chefs Warehouse, Bree Street for a little over two years and part of the team at Thali – themselves successful local dining destinations. “Honestly, I don’t think there is a chef in this country who wouldn’t want to work with Luke”, says this energetic young gun who is thrilled to have slotted into a team, which he says runs like a well-oiled machine.
As with all the eateries in the growing Dale Roberts empire, Luke plays an integral role in the menu development and overall dining experience. “Luke is known for pushing boundaries within the confines of excellence and he encourages all of us to really apply our minds, our passion and our skills to produce food that will consistently wow our guests”, says Jason.
Some new dish developments starting to appear on the menu include the already popular Linefish Escabeche with citrus and saffron, basil oil and fresh grapefruit as well as the Chocolate & Passion Fruit dessert that explores chocolate in three formats.
Jason is excited to be introducing more of the flavours and styles that make him tick “I’ve travelled all over, I was raised on my Italian grandmother’s food and I love Mediterranean food and tapas, so of course my own story is going to come into things but never to the detriment of the Pot Luck Club experience and legacy”.
As far as Luke is concerned Jason is absolutely set to take the Pot Luck Club to new heights “to work in an already-established restaurant means you need to have a combination of honed skills so you can hit the ground running, natural ability and of course a leadership style that mirrors the culture of the company and I feel Jason has all of these”, says Luke. “I know Jason is the person to take the Pot Luck Club to the next level”, he adds.
