Food & Wine

Tudor Caradoc-Davies (1998B) features as an contributor in the July issue of  Country Life South Africa.

He is described as:
"...a man of many hats - a former Michelin-star dishwasher (at Strahlenberger Hof in Heidelberg, Germany); Dar es Salaam's first restaurant reviewer (under the nom de plume Shadrack Malimbo); the sex and relationship agony uncle for Women's Health; and these days he runs a flyfishing magazine called The Mission. But more than anything, he's a food and booze writer who's had a hand in several cracking books (The Real Meal Revolution, and Braai - Reuben on Fire). For this issue's Country Chef feature, he visited chef Juan van Deventer at Groot Phesantekraal in the Durbanville Hills, which you can read about in The Sweet Spot."

The said restaurant on the farm in the article, Groot Phesantekraal, is where Lourens van Zyl (2000K) and WP van Zyl (1997K) went to Pre-Primary school, long before it was converted into a world-class restaurant.
