I was born and raised in Cape Town and managed to pursue a career as a bookkeeper. Although my profession was never my passion, it enabled me to look after my family. Years later an opportunity arose and I started a catering and décor company which took off instantaneously. Because of my love for cooking and my passion for people, I met up with a previous homestay owner and once again was given the opportunity to spread my wings. I now do what I love most and have the continued support of my husband, two daughters and my son. I thank the Lord each day. I could not have done it without Him.
There is nothing I love more than being in the kitchen. It’s where I get creative with my Cape Malay dishes. My signature dishes, Butter Chicken, Bread Pudding and Milk Tart Pancakes are just a few of favourite meals, I usually prepare for my guests. Butter Chicken to die for, as my youngest daughter would say. I love reading Christian literature, my all-time favourite book being the Bible. It never gets old and there are always lessons to learn. My golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, Cook for others as you would like to eat!!! .
