Chef Faith Shoshore has found a niche in the local catering market and not wasted any time in taking advantage of it. She cooks and delivers as per the order to her corporate clientele who are often too busy to go out to the eateries. She said that even though she just started the response is very overwhelming from her corporate clientele who are always in a look out to healthy meals. She said what makes her food preparation interesting is that the foods are tailor made for different needs where she can have plain, traditional, the usual menus, imaginative and foreign since the corporates clients always have different tastes.
“Each menu is from a customised range from a gourmet to home style, low fat, low carb, vegetarian and meat lovers,” she said. She added that the choices are endless in order for the clients to be able to be able to explore their taste buds because eating one thing can never be exciting than when you have a variety of fresh things. She said though she caters mostly for corporates, she can also do for other things and those special moments.
Shoshore said she recognised that indeed people are busy, especially those who are in the business of making money and as such they do not have time to cook for themselves or come with a packed lunch. She said with the current temperatures she has been a preferred choice for her clients because no one really wants to leave their air conditioned office to go and look for food. She then just has to cook the healthy meals and deliver them at their office doorsteps anytime to save their time. Shoshore referred to cooking as an art where she doesn’t have to stick to what she knows but rather it is all about creativity and experimenting.
She said at the moment she receives her bookings through her Faith Creative Cooking Facebook page and through her contact line. One of her clients in one of the local organisations Seabe Thapisang said they always order because they can just get their food anytime hot and fresh no matter how busy their days might be. “You just have to tell her what you want to eat and she will just do that, so I think it is very convenient and the meals are hearty,” he said.
Shoshore provides delicious fresh and healthy homemade meals and profiles her business and cooking daily art in a reality TV format. She said the show is produced by No Day Wasted Promotions. “We are currently in pilot stage and we are still looking for more sponsors from our stakeholders to make this into a great reality,” she said. The whole concept was inspired by the reception and the positive feedback that she got from her close friends and family who courage her to explore her passion for healthy cooking mixed with experimental cooking skills as a small business venture.
