"As a child I feared a rugby ball and loved the smell of marzipan when my mother decorated wedding cakes..."

Michelin-star chef, published author and passionate photographer Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen's understanding of the world was forged in the kitchens of his mother and grandmothers.

I indulge in my love of the tactile and leave my mark on my surroundings, whether I merely change the position of an object or put my mind to creating something completely new where before there was nothing.
