Wolfgat howls loudest on the global stage and wins big at the World Restaurant Awards

first_imgPaternoster, one of the oldest fishing villages on the West Coast of the Western Cape province, serenely sits a 20 diners a night Restaurant, called Wolfgat.  Unknown to the world, until this intimate, seashore restaurant was awarded ‘off-map destination and restaurant of the year’ at the first edition of the World Restaurant Awards on 18 February 2019 in Paris.This two-year old restaurant, is not only now an award winner, but is an eatery of remarkable coastal history. A 130-year-old building, located on the Wolfgat cave, Archaeologist John Parkington, affirms it as “a substantial chamber lying under an unusually large calcrete shelf”. Almost certainly, the chamber, and passages leading into it, owe their origin to underground stream erosion that has removed softer sand from below the cemented shelf”, according to their website.The menu is customised in Chef Kobus van der Merwe’s signature beach vegetation foods. Imagine for a second, homemade bread and butter, local seafood, lamb and/or venison, married with handpicked wild herbs, seaweeds from the local rock pools. The Chef teams up with his six mostly female staff, to prepare the food with some of the features taking weeks of preparation.Sharing his excitement, following his win, Van der Merwe was quoted by @worldrestawards  saying; “I’m really proud to bring something like this back to our continent and beautiful country. I’m very proud to be working in a team of mostly women.”Not only has Wolfgat become a trailblazer in the culinary industry, but is now a conversation starter on the global stage, for its exclusive scenery, a stone throw away from the tranquil, yet rippling Atlantic Ocean and a contributor to South Africa’s Nation brand image and reputation. Wolfgat has strengthened and reaffirmed South Africa as a country that inspires new ways of excellence and has remained authentic to its diverse cultures and true to its robust history.“Just making the longlist was incredibly overwhelming, because I look up to all of the other restaurants that were nominated with us, and we certainly didn’t feel worthy of being there, so this is a few steps of insanity above this, so I can’t quite put it in words. I think it willl all sink in.” said  Kobus van der Merwe of @wolfgat on winning #RestaurantoftheYear and #OffMapDestination at the #worldrestaurantawards.We only book 20 diners per sitting – by keeping it small, we keep it sustainable.

Ohio Department of Agriculture updates Fertilizer Certification Program rules

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) recently revised the rules in order to fine-tune the program established in 2014 by Ohio’s legislature. ODA made several changes to the certification, education, and recordkeeping requirements for those who apply agricultural fertilizers to more than 50 acres of land in agricultural production. Updates to the certification requirementsThree modifications to the certification requirements will: 1) provide additional clarity about how the certifications apply to employees, 2) adjust the cycle for when the certifications begin and expire, and 3) establish a grace period to obtain a renewal certification after a prior certification has expired.The new rule clarifies how the requirements apply to employees of businesses and farms, a provision that was unclear under the old rule. The certification rule requires all persons who apply fertilizer for the purpose of agricultural production on more than 50 acres of land to either personally have a certificate issued by the ODA Director, or to act under the instruction and control of a certificate holder. The person acting under the certificate holder must be either a family member of the certificate holder, or “employed by the same business or farm as the certificate holder.”Instead of starting on June 1 of year one and ending on May 31 of the third year, the certification period for an applicator will run from April 1 of year one until March 31 of the third year. The new cycle will avoid mid-season headaches by ensuring that certifications will generally be in place prior to planting season.The new rule provides a grace period to certificate holders who do not renew their certificates prior to the expiration of their old certificates. If a certificate holder’s certificate expires before they complete a renewal application, the new rule gives the expired certificate holder 180 days after the date of expiration to complete the renewal process. The primary benefit of this grace period is that within the 180-day period, the application will be treated as a renewal application rather than a new application, which requires fewer training hours. Updates to the education requirementsODA has modified the education requirements in two important ways:The rule provides an examination option as opposed to requiring all applicants to attend a certain number of hours of agricultural nutrient training. This allows individuals who know what ODA wants them to know about the topic to bypass the hours of training requirement.The new rule differentiates education requirements for new certification applications and renewal applications. Fewer training hours will be required for renewal applications than new applications.• New applicants have the option of either attending at least three hours of agricultural nutrient training or passing an ODA-approved fertilizer examination that demonstrates an “adequate knowledge of the fertilizer training requirements.” New applicants must successfully complete one of these options within the twelve months prior to applying for certification.• Those wishing to renew their certifications have the option of either attending one hour of agricultural nutrient training or passing an ODA-approved fertilizer examination. Those who obtain their fertilizer certificate within 12 months of applying for a renewal certificate do not have to complete the renewal education requirements. Additional recordkeeping requirementsThe final change to the program rules adds two new recordkeeping requirements. For each application of fertilizer, the fertilizer certificate holder must record:• The number of acres on which fertilizer is applied, and• The total amount of fertilizer applied, by either weight or volume.These are in addition to the current requirements, which include maintaining records of:• The date, place, and rate of the application of fertilizer,• An analysis of the fertilizer applied,• The name of the individual who applied the fertilizer,• The name of the certificate holder,• The type of application method used,• The soil and weather conditions at the time of application,• The weather forecast for the day following the fertilizer application, and• For surface applications, whether the land was frozen and/or snow covered during the fertilizer application.Each of these must be documented within 24 hours of the application. The existing timing requirements, such as how long the applicator has to submit the information to the certificate holder, have not changed.For more information, visit ODA’s Agricultural Fertilizer Applicator Certification web page and OSU’s Nutrient Education and Management website.
