I am a qualified home economist, dietitian and cookbook author with more than 20 years’ experience in the catering, specialty cakes, recipe development, food styling and food consulting industry.
Operating from my food studio in the heart of Cape town I do food consulting to restaurants and Hotels, offer cooking classes, custom made South African cooking experiences, do specialty cakes and bespoke catering for intimate events and corporate meetings (seat up to 20 people).
I also use the studio for recipe development and food styling and collaborate with top photographers, brands and magazines. I have recently completed the recipe development and food styling for the 5th season of a famous DISNEY TV cooking program– focusing on healthy eating and lifestyle for children.
My recipes are inspired by the ingredients I love, always seasonal, ethically sourced and the best quality I can possibly find. I like fresh, uncomplicated food and always strive to develop recipes which most cooks can relate to and don’t have to spend hours preparing. My love for food and travel keeps me on top of the latest cooking trends.
My well-equipped food studio and kitchen is available for rental to creative agencies.
