Every week The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews a famous person about her or his attitude to money (hopes and fears, successes and failures, etc.) as part of his weekly “Make Money Mondays” feature.
This week he spoke to MasterChef SA judge and renowned chef Pete Goffe-Wood.
Goffe-Wood was born in London but has been living in South Africa since he was five years old.
He studied “Food Services Management” but never quite managed to get out of the kitchen.
Goffe-Wood returned to London for nine years where he worked under some of the world’s best chefs in some of the UK’s most prestigious restaurants.
Upon his return to South African he cofounded the La Couronne Hotel & Winery (now Month Rochelle) in Franschoek, which was named one of the 50 most exciting restaurants in the world in 2000 (Conde Nast Traveller).
Earlier this year (2017), Goffe-Wood opened a striking restaurant, Bosjes Kombuis, in Ceres in the Western Cape.
