How did you start your journey?

I am South African and have lived all over the world, in particular Asia. With that being said it is where I draw most of my inspiration from. From the BBQ to the wok is where I create my best dishes. At heart I am still somewhat of a kid and love my comfort food, and what is better than comfort food taken to the next level.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

I am a self taught Chef from South Africa who has spent the last half decade working for a private catering company in Dubai and growing a questionable beard. Being a South African I like my meat, and specializes in barbeque, smoking, and grilling techniques. I have also spent a lot of time in Asia, and bring a bit of oriental flair into many of his recipes. Although I have learnt a lot along the way much has to be said from what I have learnt from my mother, she was the one who sent me on my culinary journey!
