Big Green Egg recently had the privilege of collaborating with Vusi Ndlovu, now head chef at The Marabi Jazz Club in Gauteng.
Vusi, mentored by legendary chefs like Luke Dale Roberts and Marthinus Ferreira (both experienced EGG users), entered the esteemed S. Pellegrino Young Chef competition and asked us for a Big Green Egg to practice some of his signature dishes on for the competition. Of course, we were happy to help.
EGGsperimental, inspired, creative and mad are all words one can use to describe Vusi. Bleh and passion-less are certainly not!
What Vusi did was amazing and Big Green Egg has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of his journey to Milan, Italy, in May 2018 for the finals where he was judged Number 7 in the World. That is an incredible accomplishment for a young chef from Johannesburg and we are immensely proud of him.
Here is Vusi’s signature dish cooked on the Big Green Egg at the Marabi Jazz Club.
