  • About

Pa Joe was a chef at the Tulbagh, where I started as a young cook. He was also a taxi boss and loan shark. But he looked after me and he made the staff food on the days he felt like it. One of his recipes was dumplings and chicken necks fried with onions was another. Gremolata is an unbelievable mix of simple ingredients that add so much to a basic dish. All about the aroma… As the herbs, lemon and garlic touch that hot food, the smells will keep you eating for sure.
