About Salt & Sage Food Studio
Salt & Sage is an private event space inside a home with an open-plan entertainment floor that leads onto a balcony with private pool and 180 degree sea views. The two best features of the space is the state-of-the-art open plan kitchen where cooking, eating and learning take place and the wide open balcony, the perfect place to absorb and take in the wonderful sunsets.
Chef Kimberly Jordan opened the space in 2019 and has been hosting small, private events for groups of family, friends and corporate teams who are looking for something different from the ordinary restaurant dining experience.

Meet the chef: Kim Jordan
I was born and bred in the melting pot of cuisines and cultures that is Durban, KZN. After matriculating from a boarding school in the Midlands, I went on to study and graduate with a Business Science (Honours) Degree in Marketing, at the University of Cape Town.
Upon graduating, I landed a prestigious internship at on South Africa’s top Digital Marketing Agencies and although I was collecting all the ingredients and following every step in the ‘Recipe for Success’ – I realised there was something missing. The presentation was perfect, but I came to find little fulfilment in the finished product, wandering “Is this what it’s all about?”
Vincent van Gogh once said: “Normality is a paved road; It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it”.
After years of trying to find out what I wanted to ‘do’ with my life, and trying to ‘do’ it all perfectly, I grew to understand that life should be less about ‘doing’ and more about ‘being’…And there is no place where I can ‘be’ more unapologetically myself and ever-present than I can ‘be’ in a kitchen.
Having started out as Denise Levy’s executive assistant at the Ginger and Lime kitchen in 2015, the past four years have seen me grow – not only as a chef, but as a human ‘being’. At the end of 2018, I successfully completed my professional Chef’s training at the South African Chef’s Academy after gaining invaluable experience in the Constantia fine dining kitchen of La Colombe.
I start this year opening up Salt & Sage Interactive Food Studio in my family home, in affiliation and partnership with Ginger and Lime. I hope to open this space to host many special evenings, people and to create fond memories which good company and food allow.
I hope to see you in my kitchen soon.
