In February 1994, Jeremy visited his family in South Africa. His sister, Amanda was working as a wildlife film maker and had met Emma at Lloyd’s Camp. She knew that the camp was looking for a cook and had volunteered his services. He was interviewed by Emma, who recommended him for the job.
During the seven inspirational years, working with Charles Back at Fairview, Jeremy self-funded his post grad degree in wine business at Adelaide University. Emma pursued her photography and the family expanded.

It is a versatile partner at the table complementing such classic dishes as coronation chicken, trout with almonds or even macaroni cheese
