“I am a people pleaser and there is nothing nicer than seeing happy faces after they’ve eaten some of our food,” says Naries Chef Johanna Ruiter.
“My initial claim to fame was my curry mince vetkoek and to this day it’s still one of my most popular dishes at home. My mother was an excellent cook and one of my fondest memories is of her baking a cake in a flat-bottomed pot over the coals! I think that’s where I got my love for baking from and if I had my life over I would have trained to be a pastry chef.”
