Mi­lani Mot­lohi

Pretoria News - - Good Life -

FOR Dur­ban’s chef Mi­lani Mot­lohi, the ad­van­tages of run­ning a pop-up from his fam­ily home out­weigh the chal­lenges of find­ing your way around some­one else’s kitchen.

Like some of his coun­ter­parts, Mot­lohi started cook­ing for his friends and fam­ily be­fore launch­ing his busi­ness.

“I started a few months ago, first with friends and fam­ily, then I started go­ing to clients’ homes and then I would in­vite them to my home.

The ad­van­tage of work­ing from your own home is know­ing where ev­ery­thing is. Whereas with other peo­ple, you don’t know ex­actly where ev­ery­thing is or how the oven works or if it’s big enough,” he says.

Mot­lohi caters for up to 10 guests and says he prefers to keep the groups on the small side.

“I still stay with my fam­ily so I also have to ac­com­mo­date them, but they are very un­der­stand­ing.”
