At the beginning of 2017 we found ourselves on a farm near Tulbagh making a pit braai for Guy’s sister’s birthday. We took turns on fire duty in gale force winds, a fire extinguisher in one hand and a beer in the other. The sound of Rage Against the Machine blasted from the car, and after a few beers we made a little film entitled Guyall’s Kitchen Episode 1. Little did we realise that this was the start of our business venture together.
Looking back it makes complete sense that Guyall’s Kitchen was born on a slightly drunken day doing what we love with the people we love.
Guy has been in the kitchen since graduating from Silwood, honing his skills and experimenting with different flavors, spices, and techniques while catering for large groups and intimate parties in and around Cape Town.
Lyall has worked her way through all the areas of a restaurant from trainee chef to waiter and all the way up to operations manager. In this time, she’s realised that being in the kitchen is what makes her happiest.
Guy and Lyall, both qualified chefs, are hooked on travel. They draw inspiration from the tastes and experiences of the places they visit. Now they get to share these flavours with you.
At Guyall’s Kitchen, we believe in sourcing local and sustainable foods. Our fruit and veggies are typically seasonal, our chicken is free range, and our beef is grass-fed. We're committed to responsible food preparation and we stay away from artificial flavours, preservatives and refined sugars.
First and foremost, we want to share the food we love to make and eat with you, our customers. Over time, as we build a strong, loyal, and local customer base, we dream of opening our very own deli right here in Cape Town. Come along for the ride!
