Instagram can be used for many things, from catching up with friends to sharing beautiful pictures, but for us food enthusiasts it is also a tool to finding amazing meal ideas. The key is in knowing which accounts to follow for recipes that not only look, but taste good.

Jessica George chose to share her Spicy Thai Red Curry Soup. “This dish bursts with flavour,” she says. “It excites my tastes buds and reminds me of some of my favourite things - visiting my boyfriend on his family’s coriander farm; and sitting together as a family at a warm fire while sipping delicious soup and listening to the rain as it pours down outside.”

“When I walked into the front doors of Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine. It was that moment, in 2017, that I knew this was where I wanted to grow my passion for food. The level of skill and the awesome vibe here was like no other school I had come across in South Africa.” - Tahila Pillay

Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine is a place where I can be creative. I’ve always wanted to own a coffee shop and, after seeing what Chef Jackie at Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine had to offer for me, I consider myself fortunate to have this opportunity of a lifetime.
I heard of Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine through a friend of my mom and, after a tour of the school as well as meeting Chef Jackie, I knew this was the place for me. There was an unbelievably, welcoming feeling and I noticed how dedicated Chef Jackie was to her students. I knew I wanted to be part of all that.
Jackie Cameron School of Food and Wine accepts only 15 students and I demand 200% effort from each person. Everyone, including myself, must be fully committed to this demanding yet fulfilling industry; and I’ve noted that the practice of spending time with us benefits both parties.
Every month starting from March we will showcase different wine estates. The students will pair bite-size tastings for the various cultivars being presented, and we’ll ask you to comment on the snacks and how well they pair with the respective wines.
