My Table

Even before we started Gar’nish we’ve dreamt about entertaining people in our home, just small groups a few nights a week.  Our clients, family and friends have been encouraging as asking for this for years now so we do believe the time is right. We would love to be able to share our love for creating fabulous food in the comfort of our own kitchen.  We truly do believe that this would be an unforgettable experience and we believe wholeheartedly that this would be a success story.


The story behind the name bieghuis is such a funny one that came about around our table with two of our very best friends. We thought about calling it the “smallest restaurant in the world”, seeing that is in our tiny art room, but for some reason the bieghuis made it to the end and so we’ve decided to keep the name! The reason behind this idea…..we understand the frustration of finding the right restaurant for a special, different, personal and fun evening out with a group of friends. The Bieghuis is where you can book your intimate dinner table for 2,4,6,8 or 10 friends. This promises to be an unforgettable, fun, interactive evening with creative, mouth-watering, unique dishes and service by the couple Guido and Chrisna Johannsmeier.
Book your experience at the Bieghuis… you will not regret it.


Our pick up and go table is an extension of our travelling table. We wanted to give our clients the choice of doing the travelling and set-up of their table themselves. We still provide and prepare every single item on your desired table but you pick it up and take it to where you want your table to be.


The travelling table caused so much excitement that we just had to share it with the world. We experience so much joy around our table and so we designed the travelling table idea. We want you to experience eating at our table, collecting your own memories at your place of choice.  We produce everything you want on your table! We bring your table together with your desired food choice, cutlery, crockery, glassware and theme right to where you want it to be… whether you are on top of Table Mountain, on the beach somewhere, a nature reserve or in your own garden.


Let me explain what this concept is all about. We created a place where 6 people at a time, whether it is a mother, bachelor, friends, anyone can come and prepare a week’s meals in advance. We provide the kitchen, the menu, the recipe and all the ingredients for you to prepare a meal for your family for every night of the week, while cooking a meal to the sounds of Paulo Conti,  socialising around beautiful aromas and enjoying a glass of wine.  This concept allows you to not feel quality about what you serve…you prepare the food and you know exactly how much goodness and love go into it.

As a working, stay at home mum, Chrisna, our Exe[cut]ive Chef understands the frustration a mother sometimes experience in preparing supper after a long and difficult day.  Being a mom herself, she knows how much joy and satisfaction a mom finds in serving a home-cooked meal to her family. Running around after the kids, driving up and down and working can be exhausting and sometimes you just cannot find the time to cook a wholesome meal.

In today’s world, it’s not just mothers who are concerned about serving nutritious meals, young corporates, students and working people are just as concerned and frustrated with dinner time.

Please do not stress about this anymore!  We’ve got you covered.

We organize it all, you come and have fun while cooking and afterwards, you take your wrapped up, deliciously prepared meals home, put it in the freezer and you are sorted from Monday till Thursday.  No more running around for ready meals and wondering exactly what goes into it.  This is a way to save time and money for each household… and it’s a whole lot of fun!
