My journey into the world of hospitality started many years ago as a barman at a small family owned restaurant in Cape Town. The aromas from the kitchen and the excitement of the resident chef ignited my love for food and the cheffing bug took hold.
Realising that the best experience to be gained would be in London, I packed my apron and knife set, embarking on a journey that would see me training and learning under acclaimed chefs like Rowley Leigh and Mark Sargeant at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in Claridge’s Hotel.
Upon my return to South Africa, I continued my culinary journey with appointments at Rijk’s Country House in Tulbagh, Constantia Uitsig’s River Cafe and Cape Point Vineyards.
After years of working in restaurants, the idea of cooking for clients on a personal level, making the food they love was more appealing and here I am, your next private chef.
