Food Tribe

Mar 1, 2019

Who ever said a restaurant couldn’t be life changing? Visiting Fergus Henderson’s St John was literally a life changing moment for chef Giles Edwards.

Giles spent five years working at St John before moving back to South Africa and opening his own restaurant, La Tête, in Cape Town in 2016. His restaurant is a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike and he's become one of the most celebrated chefs in South Africa.

While in Cape Town, I met up with Giles to hear his story... We talk about childhood dishes, his food philosophy and his path to becoming a chef. And to think it all started with a reluctant dinner at St John more than 12 years ago…

As we learn, persistence pays off and restaurants really can be life changing.
