How did you start your journey?

Fresh and colourful, keeping things simple and natural. Maintaining the good balance and keeping the purity and integrity of each component just as it taste. With a good use of spices and marinades we extract maximum flavour.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I began my career in South Africa at Protea hotels which now falls under Marriotts collection. Working in South Africa's top hotels and restaurant. I furthered my career moving to England. Working along side London's top chefs such as Mark Jankel, Jason Atherton and Tom Aitken's. As well as numerous openings and iconic places as Governor's House and the London Edition Berners Tavern. I have great experiences covering a vast number of styles and flavours offering a broad spectrum of flavour to cater for all types of catering requirements.
