Brad Ball Biography.
Private chef Brad Ball boasts an impressive career, and has gained a sterling reputation as one of Cape Town’s foremost bistro dining specialists. He now offers dynamic catering and consulting.
He joins Peddlars & Co. after five successful years at the helm of Steenberg Farm’s Bistro Sixteen82. In his time there he oversaw 4 years of successive accolades from the American Express Fine Dining Awards. He also gained recognition from the Fleur du Cap Top 100 Places to Eat 2011 and also Eat Out’s Best Bistro Award.
In 2012 he was awarded Trailblazer status by WWF-SASSI, the South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative, for his pioneering work in only serving sustainable seafood choices.
Adhering to the philosophy that simple is better, and ‘local is lekker’, Brad loves creating dishes with clean flavours from fresh, seasonal produce. He firmly believes that a good chef simply enhances the essential flavour of each ingredient or product. “I am very lucky chef, as I have a few acres of prime land next door where I am growing my own fruit and vegetables. I can promise customers one thing, the flavours will jump off the plate!”
