I discovered that the creator of these delights was a young chef, Juan Pierre Hugo, known to his clients as "JP". I interviewed him at the lovely home in Hout Bay that he shares with his life partner, Nicholas Whitehorn and Joshua, their adopted son. Oh yes, and 2 Rottweilers, 3 Dachshunds, 2 exotic and chatty parrots and cages of miniature doves and finches.
But first I had to explore this beautiful home of wood and stone and glass. Heavy wooden dining and coffee tables, Persian carpets on old stone floors and display cases that are crammed with Egyptian artefacts. The walls and surfaces are covered with art and objets, while gazing through floor-to-ceiling glass doors, one has a view of a beautifully landscaped garden and the spectacular views beyond.
