Tammy-Lynne Bosch was named Young Chef of the Year in the Eastern Cape Chef Forum’s first annual awards presentation in Port Elizabeth in May.
The 20-year old, who grew up in Bushman’s River but now lives in Summerstrand in Port Elizabeth, has a mother who is a chef, and so the story goes.
Once she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps, Bosch studied at Capsicum Culinary Studio and then did her internship at renowned Port Elizabeth beachfront restaurant Ginger.
Asked who her favourite celebrity chefs are Bosch answered, “Jamie Oliver is one. Watching his show from a young age inspired me to make beautiful dishes. Gordon Ramsay is one of the meanest and toughest chefs out there, and he’s not just all bark and no bite. But he definitely makes some of the best dishes in the world. Adriano Zumbo is the most creative chef I have seen and creates out-of-this-world desserts. He is a huge inspiration to me. Watching him push desserts to a new level inspires me to try new things and not be afraid of failing.”
