"Memories and Influences in my Career"
Extract from The Post

People often ask me which cooks and chefs influenced my career.

One of the chefs I most admire for sheer energy and talent is Jackie Cameron, head chef at Hartford House, a five-star boutique hotel in rural Mooi River.

Not yet 30 years old, this graduate from the Christina Martin School of Food and Wine is counted amongst the top 10 chefs in South Africa, has established her rest

aurant as a Top 10 dining destinations, and has represented the country in overseas competitions.

She counts eating at restaurants such as Nobu, Le Gravoche, Fat Duck, Gordon Ramsay at Royal Hospital Road, River Cafe, Noma and ElBulli as experiences of a lifetime.

To top it all, she has now designed her own chef's clothing range!
