Marcus Modimokwane believes that “with food, we can change the world”. When he was young, he remembers watching his grandmother cooking, in particular the most amazing chicken stew — a recipe he is still trying to perfect. It was at DNA Brand Architects where he got to work on brands such as Flying Fish and Nestlé, which drew his attention back to the food space, and he decided to change the course of his career, opting to study at Capsicum Culinary Studio. A love for experimentation means Modimokwane is often travelling and sampling new dishes. His work has been featured on The Morning show on e.tv, GQ South Africa and House & Garden, and he plans to curate experiences for people who love food. His passion for the food industry drives him each day to do better than yesterday. He hopes to share his skills with young people and help them unlock their potential.
I would tell myself that an idea doesn’t have to be great to change the world, sometimes you just need to dream, throw yourself into the universe and be crazy enough to chase your vision relentlessly
