Peter's philosophy to food preparation proudly boasts that "If it is not the best it can be, it doesn't belong on the menu!" This is the attitude that entrenches Peter’s reputation and earned him several awards and accolades.

The six restaurants of the Liz McGrath's Collection fall under Peter’s auspices be it the sophisticated gastronomic Greenhouse, or the earthy Seafood restaurant at The Marine, the gold standard set simply is perfection.

Peter's style has been influenced by culinary masters like Marco Pierre-White, Giorgio Locatelli, Joel Robuchon, Anne-Sophie Pic, and Daniel Humm. The Greenhouse is the flagship restaurant where contemporary cuisine blends with rich South African ingredients and flavours.  The Greenhouse is regarded as one of the leading restaurants in South Africa and is consciously aware of ecological concerns without compromising on dining taste and enjoyment creating exciting dishes sometimes from less glamorous fish and seafood unique to The Greenhouse and The Collection by Liz McGrath.
