Jenny Morris is one of South Africa’s most-loved food personalities. The celebrity chef has TV shows in 143 countries and is also an author, magazine writer and radio and TV presenter, among other things.
She’s had a passion for food since she was a child and believes that the way you eat your food can reveal a lot about you, like what kind of lover you are. “You don’t want someone who eats a sosatie with a knife and fork,” says Morris with the naughty laugh that has earned her the nickname of Giggling Gourmet.
