Tyron ‘Ty’ Samuel
Part Owner | Head Chef
Most embarrassing thing you own? Nothing embarrassing but I do rock my big Bunnings hat on my days off.
Your celebrity crush? Charlize Theron. Being South African, she got out of the struggle and made it big for herself.
What about you surprises people? That I’m South African.
If you could be anyone famous? Jordi Roca. This guy has an insane imagination, the things he makes through smell, feel and touch is out of this world. And this is what I would like to work towards, opening up all senses, to give people an experience like they have never experienced.
Exercise? I love walking with my partner and the dogs, on the Hill or the beach, then finish it off with a good acai bowl with all the good wholesome trimmings.
Superhero? Deadpool, this guy does what he does and has fun while doing it. I love what I do, and I’m so in love with creating food with flavours that people wouldn’t expect.
Grateful for? My family and my partner for always being my rock. And to Matt and Paul for believing in me and giving me great opportunities to grow as an individual and do what I love so much.
Hidden talent? Pretty good at reading people.
Favourite memory? Going to Durban South Africa and getting Johnny’s Rotis, (chips, cheese and mutton gravy roti) mind blowing!
Someone famous you’ve met? Maggie Beer. I met her when Chefs of the North was held at The Ville.
