Get to know me better
I am a passionate Pastry Godess.
My name is Estiaan. I'm from South Africa but been living in The Middle East (Dubai/Bahrain/Abu Dhabi) for the past 22 years. I am currently working in Dubai as a Creative Product Development Chef. My passion and love is for desserts, fine dining desserts or just a plain dessert but with a twist to it.
For me, cooking is...
Basically everything for me. Making people smile with my dessert makes me the happiest. Honestly love seeing people enjoy my Desserts
