Age 28 

Imtiyaaz Hart is a media coordinator by day and a barman at a popular bar in Cape Town by night. 

Intiyaaz has always been passionate about food and recalls many fond memories in the kitchen with his grandmother, where they would whip up a feast. 

I would always ask if I could help her with her samoosas or pies and on occasion she would let me mix the ingredients for chocolate cakes and lamingtons,” Imtiyaaz recalls. 

Now, he’s ready to show the judges what he’s made of.

“I can’t wait to learn more about food and share my experience with foodies who can relate to my love of cooking. I want the world to know that even though you didn't become a chef or attend a culinary school, you can still be confident with your self-taught cooking skills.”
