Getaway (South Africa) - - Escape -

Cook­ing is my life – it does not go on a break when I’m on hol­i­day. I try do one food trip a year over­seas. I was in Swe­den and Den­mark in 2017, and I’m go­ing to Italy this year. I love see­ing what is hap­pen­ing in Europe – it gives me per­spec­tive and in­spi­ra­tion. Barcelona is foodie par­adise. I could sit in the La Bo­que­ria mar­ket every day and ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing new every time. The best meal I’ve ever had on hol­i­day was by chance, at Anse Soleil in the Sey­chelles. Fish straight out of the sea, cooked in front of me. No book­ings – sim­ply first come, first served. I love Eng­land. I worked there for al­most three years. I went from sightseeing to eat­ing at some of the best restau­rants in the world to be­ing an avid Arse­nal sup­porter. You have to watch a game live – the at­mos­phere is un­be­liev­able. Dull­stroom sur­prised me – the food ex­pe­ri­ence there is get­ting bet­ter all the time. One of my favourites is Mrs Simp­son’s. The one place in SA ev­ery­one should visit is the Drak­ens­berg and Mid­lands. I al­ways feel at peace sur­rounded by that scenery and vast beauty. The best sun­rise you’ll ever see is at Im­palila Is­land, where the Chobe and Zam­bezi rivers meet in the Caprivi Strip. The wildlife is amaz­ing, too, and you can do some tiger fish­ing. • DW Eleven-13’s new three-course lunch spe­cial is R250.
