Olivia Fair (Charles’ daughter) found her passion of food at a very young age and so trained at the Hotel School in Cape Town after completing Matric. She then spent time working in the London corporate catering environment, followed by a stint in food and wine in Australia. Back in South Africa she worked with a leading food services consultant before joining the family business.  Married with 2 school going children, the focus here is on tasty and wholesome eating … meals that are simple to prepare and resulting in clean plates and smiling faces.
