is a Cape Town-based illustrator. From a background in 3-D animation to comics and cartoons, his deft hand is now responsible for the beautiful collection of plates featured throughout this issue. What’s your best food-and-drink pairing? Pizza and red wine. If you weren’t an illustrator, you’d be… If climbing trees were an Olympic sport, I’d be an athlete. What’s the most challenging dish you’ve ever made? I once made a ricotta and courgette cannelloni, which turned out great. I’ve tried baking but with far less success. Favourite breakfast? I’m a traditionalist: coffee. And if it comes with savoury edible bits, that’s great, too. Taste you’ll never forget? Brioche praline from the bakery in Gannat, a small town in Auvergne, France.
