About the event:
OPENING NIGHT! 12 August – Open Design CT Festival! Third edition!
We’re offering a pinch of deliciousness and a large dose of food truck indulgence to tickle your tastebuds at the Open Design launch party. We welcome The Good Life as our official food vendor for the opening event and invite you to sample the special treats on offer.
The Good Life Food Truck made its debut on the second season of Masterchef South Africa and featured on Siba’s Table on the Food Network Channel. It now has a global following: after two years on the road, The Good Life was chosen as the only food truck in Africa to feature in “Food Trucking – recipes from the world’s best food trucks” a recipe book published by Graffito Publishers in London.

Adele has had a 20 year career in PR and Marketing, and is the founder of Media Unlimited, a company that specialises in building brands for various clients in print, radio and television. Her travels have kindled her passion for savouring an array of tastes and sharing unique cuisines. As a self-taught chef she has participated in numerous cooking courses in countries including Morocco, Holland, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. She has also attended local Indian food-making workshops as well as Garagiste Wine Making courses. She derives much joy from experimenting with charcuterie and harvesting and processing her own olives on her boutique olive farm. These experiences introduced her to a career in the food industry. She built and ran Ma-roko, an upmarket guesthouse in the West-Coast which housed an intimate cellar restaurant. All these informal, yet passionate experiences have culminated in a dedicated path that led to the creation of The Good Life, Adele’s beloved food truck, serving fresh, fusion food at local hot spots. Her free time is spent pouring over cooking books and experimenting with new recipes. Whenever she can, Adele loves to watch cooking shows, frequent restaurants and food markets. She has been most fortunate to meet renowned chef Heston Blumenthal and Roy Choi – The Godfather of Food Trucking from Los Angeles, and to cook with Reza Mahammad, the Spice Prince of India. Above and beyond her love for exceptional cuisine, Adele also has a passion for mountaineering: “Kilimanjaro will not be my only Mountain-Summit.”
