I am a chef from Cape Town, South Africa with a massive love for travel, food, adrenaline and everything else good in life. My love for food started at a relatively young age, however, it could easily be argued as I had huge issues with eating vegetables, including roasted potatoes!! Luckily much has changed. I remember clearly my first food love was eggs, then chicken... for me the egg came before the chicken! I still say mom's chicken is best! I was culinary trained in Cape Town, South Africa. I started working at some of the best restaurants in the country, that included a french restaurant "La Colombe" that reached 28th best restaurant in the world. When I am off the boat, you will find me in some perfectly operating airplane, waiting to get to altitude to do my next jump. Other than that you will find me traveling, reading, riding motorcycles, watching rugby or enjoying my wide array of music genres. Today, my style of cooking is definitely French inspired, but I have traveled a lot and hence my food is very much influenced by my travels. The most important rule in my eyes is to keep the amount of flavors limited, that which is on the plate, keep it simple, accentuate what is there.
