We love our food!

Leading the kitchen, Andries is hands on producing outstanding breakfasts to order, and more through the day, delivering delicious, abundant family style lunches and in to the night, dinners that are simple, healthy and varied. Using recipes from our favourite icons: Ottolenghi, Nigella, Gweneth Paltrow, Deliciously Ella and Jamie Oliver with classics from Prue Leith and Delia Smith – this is our Zuka Style.

Andries never stops creating and has developed our Zuka culinary signatures including homemade ice-creams and cookies, fire-food (our open fire cooking in the bush as the sun goes down) and the perfecting of his own gluten free pizza bases so you don’t have to turn down a little wood fired comfort food for supper!

Andries started his chef’s life working in the staff canteen at andBeyond Phinda, moving upwards through to the kitchen scullery, to salads, pastry and the hot section and then onwards to Phinda Zuka Lodge as assistant chef. His responsibilities expanded along with his passion for food to achieve andBeyond’s Chef of the Year Award, and then promotion to Executive Chef at Phinda Mountain, Phinda Rock and Phinda Zuka Lodge before joining us at Zuka House in 2017

Simultaneously, Andries put his energy and well respected personality in to the Positive Health programme, started in 2010; an initiative that educates staff and the wider community on all aspects of eating and lifestyle to promote a healthy mind and body. Andries, ever actively engaged in Positive Health, maintains it as one of his top priorities and is renowned for his role in the programme.

Developing his skills further in his position at Zuka House, together with his deep interest in healthy eating, means Andries can tailor any specific dietary requirements with famous ease and enthusiasm.
