My name is Louise Johnson and I am a mother of two based in Cape Town, since 2006. I am passionate about food, sharing meals, foraging, food gardening, sustainability, collecting cook books and Montessori.
I started cooking in 2000 with a very busy restaurant venture in my home town and have been passionate ever since. I've worked in some imaginative and energetic kitchens all over London, Melbourne and aboard a beautiful yacht in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
I worked alongside Mark Hix and Sami Tallberg in London; who put local and seasonal food on the map. Later Philippa and I setup London's city farm restaurant 'Mudchute Kitchen'. They have all inspired my approach to sourcing and preparing food today.
