Chef Timothy Pietersen

On the 23rd of April, chef Timothy joined us in studio to talk to us about his journey through food and cuisine. Chef Timothy who is 30 years old, was born and raised in Cape Town where he discovered his passion for cooking at the age of 11 years old.

Chef Timmy came from humble beginnings, he spent most of his time in his mother's kitchen where she was constantly cooking up new dishes. He started to help with chores around the kitchen and soon developed a love and passion for different techniques of cooking. Upon graduation from culinary school in 2008, Chef Timmy worked a wide variety of restaurants including going overseas to Abu Dhabi.

After coming back to South Africa he then joined Mala Mala Nature Reserve where he then caught his big break and became the new Head Chef. Chef Timmy now resides in Cape Town where he has been working for 3 months at the 5 star restaurant called The Lawns at Roadhouse. He now continues his love and passion for cooking and creating new dishes.

Sea food is his favourite type of food to indulge in, as he grew up in his early teens fishing with his neighbour, who taught him the different fish that are out there and how to cook them.

All in all, Timothy's future in the kitchen looks bright, with the hopes of starting his own business where he uses a food truck and serve Mexican food to the ''on the go'' type of person. So in the near future, if you see a food truck with ''Timo's Foodtruck'' on it, just know it is Cape Town's own Timothy Pietersen who will be spear-heading some tacos your way.
