India has been the focus of my work in recent years and I’ll stay hooked until all the compelling discoveries there evaporate. After being captivated by the subcontinent decades ago I’ve returned many times, often spending several months documenting elusive “stepwells,” exploring remote historical sites, or reporting on more western events like the annual design, fashion, and literature festivals. Back home, I write about aspects of these travels, and present lectures on India’s overlooked marvels.

The Test Kitchen is Cape Town’s most innovative an creative break from fine dining convention.

Chef Luke Dale-Roberts has many awards under his belt and it’s no surprise that The Test Kitchen is now considered one of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. Incorporating South African flavors and some impressive Asian flair, every dish is technically precise, beautifully original and exciting to look at.
