Since its inception in October 2010, Jacques Erasmus has transformed this creative space according to the seasons and his menu is an ever-changing celebration of seasonal ingredients and inspirations. For many food-and-design aficionados, Hemelhuijs is a favourite, familiar haunt that constantly surprises and offers something new with each visit.
Capturing fleeting moments of beauty is what Jacques does best. Whether he presents them to us to enjoy with our eyes or to feast on with our taste buds, oftentimes both. Afterwards we take these moments of beauty away with us, to treasure and remember them when our spirit needs comfort… And therein lies the magic of Hemelhuijs.
Jacques also does bespoke catering for corporate and private clients, custom tailoring each event to suit each client’s needs. From intimate private dinners for 20 guests at Hemelhuijs to corporate events for the likes of some of the best international brands and designers. Jacques will even do private events at client’s homes. The style is usually understated, simple and with the focus on the finest quality and service. These celebrations are custom tailored to the specific needs of each and every client.’
