Giggling Gourmet praises good food


All your senses must be involved in tempting your palate, believes celebrity chef Jenny Morris. Known as the Giggling Gourmet, she is a sensual gourmand and one of South Africa’s most-loved food personalities. It’s no surprise: she has had an ongoing love affair with food since she was a little girl, devoting her grown-up life to her lover.

Morris wears a variety of hats. She is chef, food connoisseur, author, magazine writer, radio and TV presenter, teacher, caterer and culinary tour guide. It started with making delectable treats for school fundraisers, and has grown exponentially since then. “It’s a love affair in the true sense of the word, one that employs all the senses,” she explains.
