Who is Chris Smit? I’m just a guy who is pas­sion­ate about great food, fine wine and good liv­ing! Af­ter many years of serv­ing in com­mer­cial kitchens around the world, I swapped the fren­zied life­style of a pro chef for the un­hur­ried life of a coun­try cook and caterer. What got you into cook­ing? My child­hood, with many happy hours spent among the sim­ple yet tasty de­lights of a farm­style kitchen. Fam­ily se­crets were passed down from my gran to my mom to me. And what’s your spe­cialty? Sweet and savoury bak­ing. I’m so ad­dicted to well­bal­anced, per­fectly spiced In­dian cur­ries that I trained un­der a master for many years to get mine just right. What is your favourite cook­ing mem­ory? My folks took my siblings and I on many long camp­ing trips where we would fish, bake and cook to­gether as a fam­ily. Those happy, fire-side meals are among my warm­est mem­o­ries. So what’s the premise of your show? I’m a pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate of fresh, un­pre­ten­tiously hon­est food that’s pre­pared sim­ply and with love. That com­mit­ment to fresh­ness, au­then­tic­ity and qual­ity is the over­rid­ing mes­sage of the se­ries. The show also has a life­style and light travel el­e­ment de­signed to show­case the beauty of Fran­schhoek, in the Cape. Why did you de­cide to get into TV? Since tak­ing a hia­tus from the cheff­ing world, I’ve hosted work­shops for food en­thu­si­asts – they’ve all been well re­ceived and when the chance to do a TV se­ries came up, I seized the op­por­tu­nity to get my phi­los­o­phy and mes­sage out.
