If you want to see how the professionals serve up scrumptious meals that you could make at home, make sure you’ve got your ticket to this years Decorex Durban show, and catch Royal Palm’s Executive Chef Guy Gorrie in action.
A borne and bred Durban lad, Gorrie studied at the Christina Martin Culinary School, before embarking on a journey to England, where he was fortunate enough to be offered a string of internships at famous restaurants like River Café, Le Trompet and The Ivy.
“Working at Michelin-starred restaurants taught me the fundamental basics, which is so important when building a reputable dining menu, and this grounding has opened my eyes to the endless options of food combinations,” he says.
Upon his return to South Africa, Gorrie brought his culinary prowess to Hotel Izulu, La Montagne Hotel, and is now Executive Chef at Royal Palm’s @Thyme Restaurant, and wants to show you how easy it is to create a masterpiece, without having to break a sweat!
The show, which runs for four days from 21 – 24 March at the Durban Exhibition Centre not only gives home lovers a peek at the finest concepts and products from a collection of expertly curated designers and manufacturers, but also has a Gourmet Cooking Theatre where you can catch some amazing chefs in action.
Chef Gorrie will be in action on Friday March 22 and Saturday March 23 at 12h30 – 13h30.
Tickets are R95 (Students / Pensioners R85) and are available from Computicket.
