y cof­fee roast­ery of choice Eat­ing out in Jozi I wish I could go ev­ery­where with my Füri Chef ’s Knife and my Smeg stove (7).

My death-row meal would be a fam­ily-sized pizza (for one) and a coke (4).

If I had to choose any five peo­ple to have din­ner with it would be my late fa­ther, Jamie Oliver, Michael Jack­son, Nel­son Man­dela and Hugh Masekela (9).

My favourite food movie is Chef (8). It has an ex­cel­lent cast in­clud­ing Jon Favreau and Sofía Ver­gara.

Food in­sta­gram­mar to fol­low?

My favourite food blog is ia­mafood­blog.com

Guilty in­dul­gence? Give me pas­try any day, es­pe­cially any­thing that re­minds me of home, like pasteis de nata (1) or bola de berlim.

My sig­na­ture dish to cook for friends is shred­ded leg of lamb with home­made hum­mus, some fresh flat bread, any­thing aubergine and a pick­led red-onion salad. Best city in the world to visit for food is Guia, Por­tu­gal (10). You’ll find the tasti­est chicken in the world. Sec­ond help­ings? Gen­er­ally, no.
