The best thing I learned from my studies at Capsicum, was being exposed to so many different aspects of the culinary world, and realising that I don’t have to be caught up in a hotel or restaurant kitchen in order to pursue a career in food but that I could in fact combine my dream of working in the media and in the food industry. I am blessed to be working with true legends in this industry: Claire Winstanley (who I am currently an assistant to) and Zola Nene (who gave me the opportunity) both of whom I am truly and forever grateful for. I was also lucky enough to have worked with Katelyn Williams who was also part of the Expresso Show. Having worked with so many talented women in this industry has inspired me to push myself that much harder to hopefully someday be somewhat of an inspiration to young up and coming chefs.
