Popping in at Johan and Tessa van Schalkwyk's Wellington home on a regular basis could prove disastrous to the waistline, if Johan's rich, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth shortbread is anything to go by..
In a nutshell, Twist perfectly sums up Johan's craft, which is a fusion of modern and traditional South African cuisine, with a twist. Johan calls himself the "Chef in your Home" - an apt description for one aspect of his business, which is preparing hearty, upmarket "heat and eat' meals for people to enjoy at home..
Home-cooked meals represent just a part of this master chef's extensive repertoire. His exuberant engaging personality and light-hearted, informal approach to cooking has made him a sought after host at home cooking demonstrations (in 2007 he enjoyed a seven week stint as a TV-chef and presenter for a local food and wine series)..

Held at Die Bordienghuis, this entertaining, informal cooking demo with a focus on pasta was the first in a series dubbed "Twisted Tuesdays", which will be hosted by Johan each month..
An acclaimed caterer (who conducts regular food and wine pairings on invitation), this consistently creative chef also supplies wholesome, genuinely home-cooked, pre-packaged takeaway meals, produced under his Twist - Some More label..
A missionary for locally-grown foodstuffs, Johan strives for an 80% organic component in his cooking..
