Cooking on top of a wonder of nature: Interview with Table Mountain’s Chef Harry Schmidt
Table Mountain Café is the go-to culinary stop after admiring the awe-inspiring views from the top of our New7Wonder of Nature, Table Mountain, but have you ever given a thought to who creates the delicious meals?
With butternut soup, bobotie and pizzas on the Café's warm winter menu, meeting the creators of the meals is something I had to do.
I sat down with Harry Schmidt, master chef at Table Mountain Café and found out how he and his team manage to prepare mouth-watering meals and transport the delicious goods to the top of the mountain every day.
Chef Harry has 16 years' experience in gourmet cooking. Inspired by Cape Town's coastline, Harry's secret ingredient is garlic, as it helps fill the gap in taste.
