Formed in 2017, The Denim Chef was created for a singular purpose to create confidence in the kitchen and to create amazing food within a professional capacity with an unwavering mandate to create culinary excellence. The Denim chef was formed by two talented chefs Donovan Thys and Chris De Braine, who encountered the ever pressing lack of home cooks and the decline of good old fashion home cooking, thus birthed a determination within them to create a balance within the home dynamic where family first becomes a regular occurrence than after thought.

An Overview of the Denim Chef

I was raised in small town in the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. A city known for its award winning wines, amazing culinary treats and the home of table mountain. I come from a big family who loves to eat big and fellowship around the dinning room table. As a child I was always fascinated by this and how the dining room would be the peace grounds for whatever family dispute there was, and how the amazing spread that was set out before us would just delight the senses. Family time for me as a child was always a treat a time of appreciation as well as time of greatfulness where the chefs (my gran) and her kitchen brigade (my aunts and mom) would cook up a storm to feed the masses. However, as I got older and as time changed family time became less and less, and the new normal was take out. Everybody took their food and sat in front of the television. Socially we all became distant and the home cooks hung up there aprons and the kitchen closed.

Here at the Denim Chef we aim to turn back the clock, basically reset the clock and bring back the age of the home cooks.
