OUR OWN STORY
Meg is the “author” of Long Story – she grew up in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa and trained as a Dietician at Stellenbosch University. Her love for the sea and sailing led her on a journey of discovery in more ways than one. Whilst exploring new places aboard luxury sailing yachts, Meg discovered a passion for cooking. Many voyages later, she completed a culinary course at Ashburton Chef’s Academy in England. Her cooking journey continued with experience in hotels and the African Bush and ultimately led her to a new chapter in her life at Long Story where Meg will combine her broad experience as nutritional professional & chef with her natural flair for hospitality.
