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).

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.
