The Leopard + Kitchen + Larder + Can Do

The newest chapter in Andrea Burgener's and Nick Gordon's culinary journey, The Leopard + Kitchen + Larder + Can Do is a small deli located in the courtyard of Milpark's boutique shopping centre 44 Stanley. Their Melville restaurant The Leopard was a Joburg institution for years, much loved for celebrated chef and cookbook author Burgener's cheeky menu of innovative dishes made from fresh seasonal ingredients. The pair closed up in mid-2017 to focus instead on a catering business and for locals it's been a win as fans of Burgener's cooking style can now find a delicious selection of take-home dishes at their deli.

The Leopard has built a reputation for sourcing the finest locally produced ingredients and for focusing on sustainability. In the fridge you'll find a daily selection of heat-up or just go ahead and serve take-home meals, so good you'll want to tell your guests you made them yourself (especially the parmesan artichoke dish). On the shelves is a carefully sourced selection of the finest ingredients that Burgener herself uses in the kitchen as well as freshly made salads, homemade preserves and sauces (The Leopard's winning Caesar salad dressing is a must, as is the Cinnamon Fudge Sauce – a superb dinner party gift) and a specialist selection of wine labels.

It hasn't taken long for the enterprising duo to expand their offering and to open on Friday evenings for small plates and drinks from after 4pm, and from 7pm for table seating (bookings only) in their cosy 44 Stanley space. Their firm policy of no longer working nights is wavering, a good thing for people in search of good food.

From 11:00–15:00 the deli also has a small hot lunch takeaway menu that changes daily.
