One of Helderberg culinary master dies

Jannie Hong, one of the Helderberg’s culinary masters, died aged 52 on Thursday 25 July.

Originally from Pretoria, he opened the popular restaurant Blue Waters Seafood and Sushi Restaurant in 1999.

His death came as a shock to many of his regular customers, many of whom expressed their heartfelt condolences on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

One commentor said: “You will be terribly missed. Gone way too soon, we had so much more to argue over and laugh about. You’ve left a hole in our daily lives.

“My deepest sympathy to your wife, son and family. No more chinglish and silly humour or crème brûlée. Will forever remember your warm smile. Rest easy mate.”

His wife Yan spoke of her loss to DistrictMail.

“He was such a good person,” she said. “He always had a smile on his face and always helped other people. He was so passionate about making food, for him it wasn’t about the money. If he saw someone was in trouble and needed financial assistance, he would gladly help that person. He even gave someone a car once.”

A celebration of his life will be held at Blue Crane Funerals in Gordon’s Bay Drive, Strand on Saturday 10 August at 10:00.

His wife requests that those who wish to attended confirm their attendance with her on 082 533 8369.
