I am very excited about this post as I get to talk about one of my best friends, Jane.
Having gone to school together Jane and I spent a lot of time together while studying ( Jane at cooking school and me doing make-up) , getting up to mischief and consoling each other over our ex’s. While at school, one of our teachers told Jane she’d be packing bags at Shoprite when she’s older. I’d love to see that teachers face if she could only see Jane now, packing bags to travel the world. After working her but off, starting out scouting for work on boats in France, Jane eventually ended up as private chef for Diane Von Furstenberg and her husband. Having cooked for the likes of Oprah and Julia Roberts, Jane, who couldn’t boil an egg at school, is about to launch her first recipe book! And so I’m super excited and very proud of her inspiring story, as she enters the Saveur Magazine Annual Video Festival. This video makes me smile!
