ShapeShifter

Meet David Higgs; famed Chef at Marble restaurant (NOT a steakhouse!)

I cooked breakfast at a Protea Hotel for a year. I loved it! I thought I had arrived! I lied to get the job… It was a baptism by fire.

We don’t want another Marble. Not in South Africa anyway.

David Higgs’ career started slowly; cooking breakfasts in a small hotel.

Today he is just about the most famous chef in South Africa; known for his love of food, art, wine and a good braai – and handpicking everything from the lettuce to the plate you eat off.

He is the Chef and Cofounder of Rosebank’s heralded Marble restaurant, a meat-and-flame lover’s dream.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Higgs for his weekly “ShapeShifter” feature.
