I am a third-generation Malay cook, and have been cooking since the age of 10. My food is unique, tasty and authentically Cape Malay. I am passionate about food and love entertaining. I love travelling, meeting new people, books and engaging, meaningful conversation. I am fortunate to have traveled the world for 15 years working for an Airline, and sought out so many different food experiences across all the continents. My travels further enhanced my cooking skills and certainly matured and refined my own palate. My love for food is only superseded by my love for people and family.

Where you'll be
My home is situated in the historic Malay quarters known as the Bo Kaap. I will entertain you in my family home that has been home to me and generations before me for years and years. The Malay quarters are peppered with history, culture, vibrant colors, and local hospitality. A melting pot & fusion of smells, tastes and people. Its as if though time stood still here and you will most certainly fall in love with it..like everyone else before you.
