Braai4Heritage ambassador David Higgs


Who is David Higgs?

David has done it all. From working in fine dining restaurants to product development, catering for the airways, catering for retail chains, event catering, teaching young chefs and eventually settling back into the finer dining side of the business he has experienced all sides of the industry in South Africa. Each one giving him a different view and teaching him something new about costings, staff and ordering. When not braaing, David currently cooks at Rust en Vrede.

Why does David Higgs support Braai4Heritage?

“My earliest cooking memory funnily enough was braaing a galjoen I caught myself at one of the fishing spots close to Henties Bay. I also remember the then mayor of Walvis Bay wanting a bite and me refusing! I was about 5 then and have started sharing since! Braaing is very much part of my repertoire since I do not own an oven believe it or not. Sundays, weather permitting the fire will be roaoring and the boys talking motorbikes and things that excite us and the girls drinking far to much wine and not making sense. Braaing is very much part of our culture and im proud to be associated with this celebration of South African cooking.”
