HIGH TEA @ TRUTHBOOK NOW
The ubiquitous ‘High-Tea’ - a Victorian institution if ever there was one. Popularised by the Duchess of Bedford and the Earl of Sandwich, High Tea soon became the quintessential British tradition.
Why does it have to disappoint so? Expensive mediocrity is epitomised by a curled up, dry piece of cucumber sandwich, crust or no crust. Gently souring layers of cream in a bland chocolate-esque version of a black forest, that if you closed your eyes could be mistaken for the cucumber sandwich with some sugar and mayo!
Not us. Not ever

Kamal Hamzaoui, was born and raised in Paris, France.
He found his passion for baking at the young age of 5, when he was taught how to bake his first cake during a class at creche.
At the age of 16, he started an apprenticeship under the master of the croissant, Monsieur Chapeau. He learned here that baking was more than just mixing eggs and sugar, but more of a science and that really interested him.
After completing his apprenticeship he travelled to New York and London as a model, but returned to Paris to pursue his real passion.
Kamal has mastered his craft in 3 star Michelin restaurants such as Le Bristol Hotel's Epicure and Plaza Athenee Paris. He continued to further his career and knowledge at Assemblee Nationale's La Petite Cour & Pierre Herme.
Kamal came to Cape Town in 2003 on a holiday and fell in love with the city and his beautiful wife.
