About GI Jane

GI Jane was started in 2018 by Candice De Mendonca, who has been a Personal Trainer for over eight years and qualified as a Sports Nutritionist in 2017. She has teamed up with the Executive Chef from EH Catering, Komnia Minkova, and now own GI Jane together. They can prepare up to 1 000 meals a day if not more! They have been working closely with clients with their fitness as well as healthy eating, in order to receive the best results for each individual's specific goals and dietary needs.

Candice has realised over time that people are either too busy to prepare healthy meals or are not sure how to start introducing healthy foods into their households, which is why GI Jane Guilt Free Foods is the perfect solution. While larger catering companies offering healthy meals delivered to your door, they don't take into consideration that everyone is different when it comes to their nutritional needs. GI Jane recognises the need for customised meal prep according to her clients' weight, body measurements, health matters and personal goals.

You are not only getting healthy and nutritious meals, but you are also getting a lifestyle coach and programme that will be updated as your personal health needs change over time. This is the perfect meal solution for those who face diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol issues and other health matters that require effective nutritional meal plans for a healthier lifestyle.

The pinnacle point of the Good Food Studio is all about cooking in delicious style. If you're into bettering yourself in the kitchen - or learning from scratch for that matter - then start with the best ingredients, sourced both locally and abroad, and then let the Good Food Studio help you cook and bake them in style—using SMEG appliances and the most cutting-edge cooking studio any foodie would want... oh so fancy, wouldn't you agree?

Good Food Studio

Top Notch Teachers

One of the most exciting and cutting edge attractions at the Good Food Studio (that's not their impressive collection of German chef knives), is their commitment to showcasing the best local and international chefs, who will share their unique flair, skill, and passion for cooking with you. The Good Food Studio will bring you the latest cookbook launches and give you a chance to meet the authors, and hold special classes with the chefs so that they can share their knowledge and wisdom. But of course the Good food Studio has a standard curriculum as well as other classes that change according to what’s hot in the food world right now.

Good Food Studio

A Studio To Die For

When you arrive in the Good Food Studio, you’ll be greeted warmly by their well trained and caring receptionist, Annelise and have a chance to order a coffee or other refreshing drink from their stocked bar and browse through the library of baking, frying, braaing, and baking books. The auditorium is used for demonstrations by guest and celebrity chefs or can be used as a boardroom area for training before moving on to one of the Good Food Studio's modern, beautifully fitted kitchens for a hands-on cooking class. A smaller kitchen that hosts between 8 and 16 guests for more intimate, specialized classes and a larger kitchen that can host up to 24 guests for a more relaxed, fun filled experience.

The Pick ' Pay Good Food Studio formal dining area overlooks the river from a balcony and can seat up to 24 people. It can be screened off to create a private area and is ideal for book clubs, tea parties, food shoots, directors’ lunches or any other occasion where good food and style meet.

If there's one thing social media has played a big part in, it's the healthy living movement. From inspirational Instagram pages to an ever-expanding health food section in local supermarkets, this revolution is picking up steam. One of the loudest voices on the forefront of South Africa's good living revival is Daniel Brouze (along with his sister Kim Brouze) of Krunch, the "fresh express" take away spot. To Daniel you are what you eat. It is at this that he started up Krunch - to supply a healthy alternative to fast food.


To freshen things up, Krunch launched its new summer menu in early 2017. Much like the old menu, it's packed with the good stuff but Daniel doesn't want to spill the beans on the menu's content just yet. “We have a new summer menu launching in November, which includes delicious zucchini noodle dishes, antioxidant-packed acai smoothies and moreish breakfast bowls. We also opened a new store in early 2017,” said Daniel. Offering amazing salads, wraps, smoothies, juices and more, Krunch uses only the finest, freshest ingredients to ensure customers get optimum nutrition without compromising on taste.
