Kokkedoor's Nic van Wyk Sold On GWM
GWM's high-profile sponsorship of the second season of the smash-hit Afrikaans reality cooking show, Kokkedoor, also entailed supplying co-host and judge, Nic van Wyk, with an H5 2,0 VGT to drive for a year. With the sponsorship having run its course, Nic was faced with a dilemma - he had to buy a car!
His year with the H5 was, however, enough to convince him that a GWM was the way to go. As a "double-cab man", his final choice was a Steed 5 2,4 4x2. "You just can't beat the value," he explains. "I've driven many bakkies in my life and considering the Steed's capability, features and price," there's simply nothing out there that comes close. I also had great service from the GWM Helderberg branch during my year with the H5."
The Steed will be used extensively in the coming months as Nic gets another new project off the ground, Bistro 13 on the Welmoed Wine Estate near Stellenbosch. Nic gained classical training and great experience with Franck Dangereux at La Colombe and further fine-tuned his methods at the Terrior restaurant. He is assisted at Bistro 13 by Juan van Zyl, previously the sous chef at Rust en Vrede.
Open on all days except Mondays, it offers a breakfast menu, three-course menu and even a ten-course tasting menu. Bistro 13 is also kids friendly and features lots of open grass and a dream-catcher jungle gym, not to mention a special Munchkin Menu.
