Meet The Team | Table For Two
Lyall trained under Graeme Shapiro at The Restaurant and later gained international cooking exposure in London working alongside Alistair Little at Tavola Delicatessen as well as learning the ropes of running a high volume restaurant at Belgo Centraal. After returning to South Africa she worked at a prestigious law firm and gained invaluable business savvy. Her passion for the restaurant industry called her name, and she soon took a deep-dive into the administration and customer service at Cape Town’s iconic Café Caprice. After 10 years of service, she became a partner at this 18-year-old establishment. Her next career adventure took her down the road of entrepreneurship, as she started her own company consulting to top food establishments in and around Cape Town. But, as both the business and cooking bug bit hard, Lyall decided to truly follow her heart, and Guyall’s Kitchen was born.
Guy’s enthusiasm for good food began at an early age when he sat at the kitchen table with his mother baking cakes (and perhaps nibbling a few). So, it was a natural progression that, as soon as he could, he started working in restaurants. Guy attended Silwood Kitchen, South Africa’s most esteemed cookery school, and the two were a match made in heaven. It was here that he learned to perfect his skills, and was given the tools and experience to turn his passion for hospitality and impeccable cuisine into something more. He studied under Luke Dale-Roberts and Scot Kirton at La Colombe, Michael Broughton at Terrior, Gordan Ramsey at Maze, and was a private chef to hotel mogul, Sol Kerzner, before taking a post as Head Chef at Cape Town’s famous, Café Caprice. Yet, the yearning to put his own mark on things took over and he created a company of his own mastering food at many functions and events. But, after meeting the love of his life, Lyall, he realised that there truly is no place like home, and Guyall’s Kitchen became his biggest dedication.
