Mpho Phalane-Founder and Owner of Food I Love You

Mpho left a successful career in advertising to follow her dream of making a living out of food. She now runs the experiential catering company Food I Love You from the Victoria Yards complex in Johannesburg. She advocates food simple, tasty food that looks and tastes fantastic. We chatted about her early experiences in cooking, the inspiration she got from her mother and the importance of being a role-model and mentor to others. Mpho is also involved in catering for the Including Society project that brings together a range of different people to discuss sensitive issues around transformation over a good meal. While Food I Love You is primarily a catering company you can pop down to Victoria Yards on the first Sunday of every month and see what Mpho has on the menu. She assures me there are always plenty of vegan/veggie options available. For more information about Food I love You, go here (https://foodiloveyou.co.za/) .
