Clement was set on a career in the business world before he found his true passion. A three year stint to become a professional chef followed at the Cape Town Hotel School. He has worked as a chef at 5 Flies, The Conservatory and The Greenhouse when it was South Africa’s number 1 restaurant in the country. Clement has worked on Taste magazine and came to the attention of television viewers as a chef on Afternoon Espresso. He was the winner of the Spekko Rice Celebrity Chefs Cook-Off last year. His dream: “To get people to enjoy cooking and sharing food together. Cooking should be taught in schools.”
