I was fortunate to have Allan’s culinary expertise as part of a large group for the best part of 2 weeks. This was no doubt some of the best food I’ve ever eaten and his meals left the entire table speechless on several occasions. I was constantly amazed by the multitude of tastes and elements that accompanied each dish. There were too many highlights but a few of my favourites were his incredible pork belly, delicious peri peri chicken, asian slaw, chocolate souffle and lemon meringue. To complement his expertise in the kitchen, Allan’s friendly demeanor made him a pleasure to have in our house. He shared some great stories and was always enthusiastic to give a masterclass in his techniques as he was preparing our meals. I look forward to tasting his food again next time I’m in Cape Town.
