About The Chef

I grew up having the privilege of traveling the world from a young age. I tasted French cuisine as a toddler and fell in love with it. I knew then that food would always be awfully close to my heart.

I graduated from the world-renowned City & Guilds chef school, The Institute of Culinary Arts in 2017 with distinction. I specialised in New Product Development in my final year and my thesis focused on replacing conventional sweeteners in baked goods with more ‘healthier’ alternatives.

Once I graduated, I knew I had to spread my wings and experience the flavours that were out there. I started working as a chef on the superyachts later that year. Since then, I have seen the most beautiful spots in the Mediterranean and have had the privilege of cooking with the best of what the world has got to offer.

I am now working as a private chef in the Western Cape, South Africa and I have a huge passion for cooking for families and intimate groups. I enjoy the more personal approach to cooking and taking the time to get to personalize the client’s specific preferences and specifications. I can engage with the guests to make sure I achieve the best results I can.

Being a South African, we have a totally unique outlook on food and the ceremonial beauty of it. Learning about and cooking with these unusual ingredients and flavours have shaped me and my relationship with food. I am highly trained in French cuisine including patisserie and desserts. I hold a lot of experience in a number of international cuisines including all Asian cuisines, Mediterranean, North African, American, and European. I am very enthusiastic about sourcing my produce locally, seasonally, and responsibly. I have a strong cleanliness and hygiene ethic and hold a Food Health and Safety Level 2 Qualification.

Cuisine Type:
Middle Eastern, Italian, French, Asian (Japanese, Thai, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese), South American (Mexican, Brazilian, Peruvian, Cuban), Mediterranean, South African, and Northern Africa.
