Ezra Poole Wicket-Keeping Academy

On the 24th of May, we were joined in studio by Ezra Poole from the Ezra Poole Wicket-Keeping Academy.

Ezra Poole is a certified level three cricket coach. As a player, he has racked up 69 games for the North West Dragons. He also represented the South Africa Colts and South Africa Universities sides. As a coach, he has experience in a numerous of coaching courses and has specialised the craft of wicket-keeping which has improved his credentials as a coach.

To expand his authority and knowledge as a wicket-keeping coach, he extended his coaching qualifications by completing level 1, 2, 3 and refresher coaching courses for Boland Cricket. He is currently a CSA consultant. Due to his unique skills and knowledge, Ezra has worked with wicketkeepers at international level, franchise level and as well as amateur level from U/13 upwards. He is currently the Convenor of Selectors for Western Province Cricket.

He tells a funny story of how he actually got into wicketkeeping. One of his team mates did not pitch up for one of their games, and because no one else wanted to be wicketkeeper, he took it upon himself to stand in as wicketkeeper and the rest is history. The Cape Town based, Kensington cricket guru, said he chose cricket over soccer because at the time it was less running and jokingly said it was the best decision he could have made as he has made a career out of it.

When asked if he thought cricket is dying in the western cape, he simply said "cricket is actually in a healthy state in Western Cape." Majority of his work is done at Newlands field, and as it is winter, they will need to find an indoor facility to train.

Kiwondo's Sushi Company (Tasty Tuesday)

If you do not know what Tasty Tuesday is all about, it is a segment we have on Bush Radio via our Morning Cruise show, where we showcase local food businesses and what they have to offer by giving them a platform to advertise and market their business wether they are selling food from the back of a car, or their own studio space.

This week for Tasty Tuesday:
Kiwondo's Sushi is a sushi catering agency based in cape town. Their company was created in 2015 by Elie Kiwondo. They provide modern and classic on site sushi catering services and other services related to sushi.

Even though they are a sushi-inspired company, they are soon to dabble in more dishes but still incorporate the seafood side of things. With so many sacrifices they had to endure to get their sushi business off the ground, it has been all worth it for the duo. ''Everyday is a challenge, people want more and they want different from the usual to make them happy,'' are the words of Elie who speaks about how tough the food industry is and how challenging it is to keep customers coming back for more.

With 2019 in its 5th month already, Elie wishes to partner and collaborate with other catering agencies. They also wish to grow their clients so that they would have more of a consistency where income is concerned. Getting rid of all distractions are one of the many keys to success that Aneeb and Elie always follow.

Tamryn Pereira (student and chef at The International Hotel School)

All the way from Delft, Tamryn Lynn Pereira, an aspiring chef, joined us in studio to talk about her journey through food and came to whip up a storm for us on our segment called Tasty Tuesdays.

Going into her second year of cooking and being a chef, she draws her inspirations from her mother who is very good in pastries and has been her motivation since a young age. With Tamryn graduating in 2020, more specifically June 2020, she hints at studying further in the culinary arts department. Her specialty is Pasta, Steak and deserts. As stressful as the job is, she says its a satisfying feeling seeing that the food she serves people make them happy and that they are satisfied with their meals.

Being a perfectionist and also very critical about her food and how its made, she hopes to one day run her own restaurant and oversee a kitchen of the best chefs she can find. Tamryn hopes people stay away from fast food as it is unhealthy and that people should seek more healthy and vegetarian servings. With jobs in Dubai and on crew ships on the table, Tamryn is in no rush, as she wants to learn more dishes that could benefit her in the future where jobs and having her own restaurant is concerned.

When Tamryn is not at work, she practices cooking at home for her friends and family. Speaking about work, Tamryn applies her trade at the Onomo-Inn on the the square, in Cape Town.With the interview coming to the end, Tammy thanked her best friends and her parents for being her support system on her journey so far.
