The energy, the people, the weather.
What do you do in Jozi?
Work as a Personal Chef.
Are you a morning or evening person?
Describe a typical or ideal day in your life?
A typical day in my life consists of waking up, having a coffee, checking my prep list, then go to the shops and buy ingredients required for a dinner, start prep and cook until all the prep is done, then pack and get ready to leave to a clients house, cook and serve dinner. An ideal day in Johannesburg for me is a day spent on the golf course.
