The Cookery by the secret Jozi Chef-10

The Cookery by the secret Jozi Chef-1

So you’re sitting at your desk, in the bath, in your kitchen thinking about what you’re going to make for supper. You could make spaghetti bolognese again, I mean everyone loves your spaghetti bolognese or what about roast chicken, that’s easy enough or perhaps everyone can fend for themselves tonight in your house and have Marmite sandwiches! What if I told you about a place that not only will have you chowing down on a delicious meal by the end of the night but will also have you learning how to make it too, so that spaghetti bolognese doesn’t have to be your only go-to recipe. Sound good?

Just recently I went to a new establishment in Johannesburg called The Cookery by the secret Jozi Chef owned by Paul, one of the same people who own and run Pronto, one of the best Italian restaurants in Joburg, so you know you’re in good hands.

Josh Kempen - The River

I love the fact that I’m surrounded by super talented people all the time, I always think to myself that I’m so lucky to know and get to feed off so many cool people that are always in the process of making cool stuff. One such person is my very talented friend Josh Kempen has just recently joined Warner Music South Africa team and on Friday released his debut single The River, which is such an awesome song!

Josh is one of many local musicians that I think need and deserves all the support in the world, so support him now and download his song here. You and your ears won’t be sorry.

Gypsey Rose – Churche

July 11, 2016

Gypsey Rose - Churche-13

A while back Churche was asked by local label Gypsey Rose to shoot their look book for them and seeing as Adi and I love creating and shooting stuff just as much as we love eating Super C’s and Nik-Naks (we LOVE eating Super C’s and Nik-Naks), we jumped at the opportunity and photographed an array of clothing that is very different to the stuff that we have shot in the past.

Gypsey Rose makes very girly, pretty clothing that is loose fitting and super comfortable to wear, it’s made up of loads of patterns and so we wanted to shoot in an environment that was beautiful, by stark enough so that the clothing would stand out. We also wanted to create a couple of bold headpieces for our model to wear, to add a bit of fanciness to the shoot. These headpieces scratched the living daylights out of our hands whilst we were making them, but I they were worth it.

Below is the final product and we couldn’t be happier with it. Please let me know what you think, any feedback in most welcome unless you’re going to tell me that you hate Super C’s and Nik-Naks, then I don’t want to know hehe.

Thanks to Amy our model who is beyond amazing. I’m convinced this girl’s face could melt the sun!

Thai Green Coconut Chicken Curry

July 7, 2016


Ooooh but I love Thai food, it’s always so beautifully balanced with its sweets and sours, it spices and curries. I don’t cook a lot of Thai dishes at home, but I’m on a mission to change that because it really is one of my favourite cuisines and I’d love to learn more about it.

I decided to start off with a recipe that isn’t too complicated, a Thai Green Coconut Chicken Curry. I think the hardest part about this was going to the shops and placing all the ingredients into the trolley. Making the curry paste from scratch was so satisfying, in fact whilst I was making it I was talking out loud to myself like I was presenting my own show, I sounded like a slightly confused and out of touch Nigella Lawson but I was having fun and that is all that counts.

Bite Me - Exhibition by Churche

Adi and I are so excited for our first Exhibition by Churche called Bite Me. It starts at Wolves tomorrow night and will be running until the end of the month. We wanted to create pieces that were fun and added a bit of humour to a room. There are 12 artworks to choose from and they are all A2 digital prints going for R490 a pop, available from Wolves or directly from me. If you’re keen to buy one just drop me an email ( and I’ll make a plan to send it to you via the post.

You may have seen half the collection already in a previous post, but here they all are again.

Ps: No food was harmed or wasted during this shoot and all the Twinkies found a safe home in my stomach afterwards.

Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes

June 28, 2016


How does a Strawberry Milkshake Cupcake sound to you? When I say Strawberry Milkshake Cupcake I mean it, these suckers taste exactly like what they are named after and are the kind of cupcakes that you’re going to find difficult to stop eating after one, especially because the magic ingredient is Strawberry Nesquick, which is like pink magic powder.

I just recently bought The Hummingbird Bakery Life Is Sweet cookbook off LOOT and in it I found this recipe, which I thought sounded pretty awesome, I mean who doesn’t like milkshake flavoured anything? The answer to this rhetorical question is no one by the way.
