Simone studied at Capsicum Culinary studio in Port Elizabeth where she got her diploma in food preparation, pastry and management. During that time she also furthered her knowledge by doing chocolate courses at the Lindt studio in Cape Town.
She started working at the Boardwalk Hotel as part of the opening team of the 5 star property. She started off as a commis chef and in 3 years there worked herself up to Pastry Sous chef.
Simone says her passion is definitely Pastry but Muse has taught her the importance of being a good all-round chef. She loves how much she has grown in this aspect since they started Muse.
After Allan left school he did a very short stint studying Accounting, and very quickly realized that it was definitely not for him. He then decided to travel the UK and started working at the Angel Hotel as a barman. He did a couple of extra shifts as a sculler in the kitchen. Allan says, I fell in love with the craziness, from there on out I wanted to be a chef. From sculler he became a commis chef.
After returning to South Africa he worked at some small properties and worked my way up to Head chef. While working he studied part time at Capsicum Culinary Studio to get his diploma in food preparation.
Allan was also part of the opening team for the Boardwalk Hotel. He started as a Sous Chef and worked himself up to Executive Sous chef before him and Simone decided to open their own restaurant.
Allan believes that as a chef/restauranteur you have a responsibility towards nature and that you should leave a green foot print as far as possible.
