pheka fresh simple cooking about me

about me

my heart has always been in the food industry – for as long as i remember i have watched my mum in the kitchen as she taught others to cook – i waited patiently for tasters, quietly taking in everything she said – inspiration lead me to complete a diploma in food and nutrition in 1995

i have been involved in the food world ever since both locally and internationally – i had the experience of working in the french alps in chamonix, the mediterranean and caribbean on private yachts – i spent time in europe, asia and south america and absorbed everything i could regarding the food and culture of the places i visited – on returning home i stepped into the hospitality industry and spent a few years in the heart of the bush, working for leading sa game lodges fuelling my passion for people, travel and food

now back in kzn where my family and roots are – with my two beautiful sons, luc and dominic, i have realised the importance of family time for all

i hope that pheka allows you to enjoy these fresh and simple pleasures.
