I am originally from Pretoria, South Africa and ten years ago, had my first “emigration” with my husband, Josef, to Cape Town :). We had our beautiful son, Josua there and I started my own Training Academy, La Petite Pâtisserie. We moved to the Netherlands two years ago and are now settled in Zwijndrecht, South Holland. My passion is summed up in teaching, photography, and creating beautiful food but besides that, I also love painting, playing piano, and spending time with my family.
I am a qualified Foodservice Manager and Nutritionist that believes in thorough training and understanding of food. I realised after working for 15 years in corporate, that my biggest love really is to teach and coach. To assist others with a business journey and to make everything possible to help them to start their own business.
At one stage I myself was without work and therefore opened my own company. I realized that others might also have a problem of being “under-qualified” or “lacked self-confidence” so I created four courses within the Patisserie field that I would teach and got them accredited with SETA.
In the Netherlands, I still teach at various venues, or at my home as well as online with the international public. My services also include, consulting to the culinary market and being a food photographer and stylist.
