Jackie Cameron
I met Jonathan Kapp, of Johannesburg, by chance. He accompanied his girlfriend for an interview to enroll at the school, and he so enjoyed what he saw that soon after he sent an application.

Jonathan is sharing a recipe for a Wayfarer Whole Trout. “The dish I’m sharing is whole trout with hand-picked dill and fresh orange. It’s simple but colourful with all the elements fresh and vibrant.”

In the students’ first week we visited many of our suppliers including Wayfarer Trout. This is a little farm in the heart of Dargle in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Clearly, the beauty of this farm captured Jonathan and stimulated a desire to make this dish.
