About eben


I live in Cape Town where I manage production at a bacon factory in Cape Town.  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.

During my annual vacation I love visiting producers around the world to share and learn. Anyone interested in collaboration on a range of fascinating projects can contact me on ebenvt@gmail.com.

  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
