I am a passionate chef with high standards to food and a love for food photography. I love developing new concepts and menu ideas always looking to set new standards with a very competitive nature. I spent 7 years working in some of the best kitchens in London. My career started working in a pub kitchen at the Queens head in Marylabone st in 95 and quickly moved on to the production kitchens of Harrods where I spent 6 months learning how to prepare gourmet terrines, amazing sandwiches and my first experience of fine dinning in the Georgian restaurant. I moved on to various kitchens in London improving each time I moved and learning a variety of skills along the way. I had the opportunity to work on some of the UK landmark events including Wimbledon tennis catering for the royal box and the common wealth games in 2000. I worked my way to Executive head chef of Goldman Sachs feeding an average of 4000 staff each day. I then moved on to work for Canape's Direct as Development chef where we product up to 30 000 canapes a day for various London events. I started my own Kitchen called South African Table in London in 2001 before moving back to South Africa at the end of 2002 to start Imagination Food Design.
