About the Author
Not everyone grows up in an Italian family with a Nonna renowned for her cooking, who then taught her daughter and her daughter after her…But this is the story of the Viljoen/ Treccani family. For years their mama, Luciana, had catered to make ends meet, and Chiara and Ryan were only too ready to move away from unfulfilling jobs. Wanting to share the love in the form of food and pooling their resources, the three of them opened Café del Sol in Johannesburg in 2007. Despite a plethora of challenges, the restaurant flourished and led to the opening of a second one (Café del Sol Botanico), as well as multiple awards.
