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.
