‘I live to eat’
I’m totally food obsessed, anything from sourcing, prepping, cooking or baking but most of all eating. My world revolves around food. Give me a good cookbook, a kitchen and I’m the happiest girl in this world. I spend my free time hunting for new & exciting recipes.
Don’t ever expect me to stick to a recipe, as I read it my mind ticks overtime and every imaginable food combination pops into my head.
My passion for food probably came about because I am ALWAYS hungry 😉 I started to show an interest in cooking in high school and when I was 16 I set a goal to own my own cafe one day.
How ‘love food’ came about:
I completed my schooling at Oakhill School in Knysna in 2006 and spent 2007 at Silwood Chefs College in Cape Town where I received my diploma.
2008 and most of 2009 I spent in London where I got some valuable work experience; this is where I fell in love with Yotam Ottolenghi’s style and concept which made me even more determined to achieve my dream.
In 2010 ‘love food’ was born as a small catering business from home; concentrating on the healthy way to prepare and eat food without detracting from its taste and attraction – using plenty of herbs, fresh, healthy products and the “low – fat” substitute.
This has been operating successfully so onto the next step, here I am, ‘love food, kitchen, deli & cafe’ is a reality 🙂
