Francois’ love for cooking and baking bread certainly comes from his Ouma.
She religiously baked each day and had an incredible passion for food and baking; she was filled with love. Francois was always so excited for the holidays to come so that he could go visit her. Twelve years old and alone on a bus from East London to Durban, on his way for a fun-filled vacation of cooking and baking with Ouma.
In his teenage years, he started out as a table cleaner at an Italian restaurant, where they made fresh bread dough every morning. He made sure that he got to work earlier to learn how to work with bread dough. He fell in love with baking!
Francois has worked in many different restaurants and bakeries over the past 10 years and finally followed his passion in starting his own bakery.
