"WHEN YOU’RE HOT, YOU’RE HOT"
And it seems the cooking game is the hottest of the lot. Already rated in the National Top Ten chefs (in all categories), Hartford’s Jackie Cameron’s latest accolade sees her included in the Top 10 Young South African Chefs. Though what you have to do to be “young”, is an open question. It’s another tribute to a genuinely young talent who’s made it, not only on the back of a god-given gift, but also courtesy of an energy-sapping work ethic. In a nutshell, this is what the judges had to say:
"Fine dining flair, international chic and witty charm combine on the plates of this super talented, ridiculously young chef. The trout with papaya-champagne sauce and caviar is achingly wonderful.”
