About eben


I live in Cape Town.  I wear many hats.  I am passionate about artisan curing of exceptional meat products; an amateur food historian; a bacon processing consultant with 6 years production management experience in a large bacon plant, 10 years operations management experience and is available for contracts and consultancy work.  I assist companies to integrate the reshaping of bacon logs through grid technology and transglutaminase.

I love food technology and discovering why things work the way they work.  I write about what fascinates me.

We learn from people around us.  Sometimes I have the privilege to interview food-people.  I share their stories here.

I have two children, Tristan and Lauren.

  2. Dear Eben

    I found your website when looking for material on E V Rieu. I’ve just forwarded a biographical note on him to some friends (including a link to your blog about Rieu) and would like to forward to you if you can send me an email address.

    I look forward to exploring your website.

    Best wishes
