Sally caters for events, including weddings, corporate functions, birthdays and staff parties. Sally is a soft-hearted lady who has admired her mother’s cooking since she was a young girl. In fact, she has always looked up to her as a role model, mainly because, being illustrate never stopped her pursuing her career in cooking. Have a look at some of the interesting questions, Greyville Convention Centre asked our admirable chef…

Where did you study and what did you study?

I did in-service training at the Royal Hotel in Durban from 1996-2002.

What or who inspired you to become a chef?

My Mum. Even though she was illiterate, she could cook meals without reading recipes. Her food was always delicious.

What is your favourite meal to cook?

Chicken and Prawn curry. I won an award for the most creative recipe.

Tell us a bit about your career as a chef.

Food has always been my passion. My career started at the Royal Hotel in the Ulundi restaurant. Soon after working in the restaurant, I moved into banqueting, whereby I cooked meals for high profile people, including the Queen of England. That was a day I’ll never forget!

Does your family support your career?

Yes, they do. My family loves tasting all my experiments.

Does anyone else in your family enjoy cooking as much as you do?

Yes, the entire family in fact.

Who are you role models and why do you look up to them?

My role models are my mum and chef Nairof from the Oyster Box hotel. Both of them saw my potential and helped me to be the best at what I do.

Does cooking with a partner in your industry make it easier?

Yes it does, especially when cooking for a large scale.

Besides being a chef, what other job would you have liked to pursue?


How long have you been in this industry for?

I have been in the Industry for 20 years.
