The Bryanston Organic Market, The Jozi Market
3. Which cooking schools do you recommend?
Wicked School of cooking and the Angela Day Kitchen

Seems like a terrible shame to name just one…..I love them all except aniseed. My favourites are red chilli, Safinter Smoked Paprika and Sumac. The list really does go on…there are just too many to name.
5. Favourite Food?
Indian, of course!
6. Where do you buy meat?
Our local Broadacres Spar has a resident butcher, Mr Pat and he is fabulous….he is happy to assist with the recommendations and also with preparing the cuts of meat according to my specifications.
Tight line fisheries and Fisherman’s Deli

My favourite restaurant is my home….where we always eat gorgeously delicious food which is created and designed for amazing friends and children….all the meals are prepared with care and love!
