I am a passionate pastry chef with 9 years experience in high end restaurants/hotels.
Started my cheffing career at the age of 30 at Le Quartier Francais in the Cape Winelands, under world renowned chef Margot Janse. I spent five years under her guidance, where after I got offered a head pastry chef position at Open Door Restaurant in Cape Town. Here I explored the field of bread baking a lot more intense and started doing artisan sourdoughs by hand. I am currently the head pastry chef at Boschendal, a wine estate in the Cape Winelands with multiple outlets.
I am self taught and have a very good knowledge of my field through self-study.
I would like to gain international experience as a pastry chef, and be able to learn more.
