Restaurateur, Chef, Cookery writer, TV Presenter, Novelist and Business Women comes home!
Prue Leith has announced that she will be returning to South Africa for two weeks in February 2020. As one of the world’s most well-known restaurateurs and culinary experts, Prue was born in South Africa, and will be visiting the Prue Leith Chefs Academy, and promoting various projects including her cookbooks, novels and spectacle range.
After a week in Cape Town, Prue will visit the Prue Leith Chefs Academy in Gauteng, where she will spend time with students and alumni. The Academy, established in 1997, has become the go-to college for chefs looking for interns or apprentices in the kitchen.
In what is sure to be a treat for foodies, Prue will be promoting her latest cook book while in the country. Titled PRUE, it is a compendium of her all-time favorite recipes, from modern vegetarian ones developed last year to classical dishes she learnt 50 years ago.
Continuing with her literary ventures, Prue’s latest novel, The Lost Son, the third book in her trilogy, the Angelotti Chronicles is now available. The three books are stand-alone stories, each covering a generation of the Angelotti family. As in the first two books (The House of Chorlton and The Prodigal Daughter) the new book is a tale of love and secrets against the fraught background of the restaurant industry.
One of Prue’s recent ventures is a range of colorful and vivacious spectacles, Prue at Ronit Fürst, available at select optometrists across South Africa. Prue had worn Ronit Fürst’s colorful and funky glasses for years when she won Spectacle Wearer of the Year in England. As a result of the press and interest this created, she and Ronit decided to launch the colorful and unique Prue at Ronit Fürst eyewear range. Prue is a great advocate of a spirited splash of color, especially for older women who sometimes lack the confidence to tend to dress boldly. Her spectacle range is designed to be a morale booster for anyone, men and women, of any age.
