Your journey of food begins here.
Midlands born and raised, Jackie’s heart is in KwaZulu-Natal. After graduating from the Christina Martin School of Food and Wine in 2001 Jackie kneaded her career at Mount Grace Country House and Spa and she watched it rise as she reaped the rewards of her commitment to her career. During Jackie’s 12-year tenure at five-star boutique hotel, Hartford House, the hotel achieved many accolades such as national Top 10 status four times, Top 10 Eat Out, American Express Platinum Fine Dining Programme and People’s Choice awards.
In her personal capacity, Jackie has the distinction of being one of Victor Strugo’s “three favourite woman chefs”. And yet, with all of these accolades to her name, Jackie believes there is more to food than working in a top restaurant. Through the establishment of the Jackie Cameron School of Food and Wine, Jackie is enjoying sharing all that she has learnt and experienced with her students.
Jackie and her team will work tirelessly together to ensure that all your special events including weddings, birthdays, and conferences are catered for at the highest level resulting in a truly memorable journey of food. You have the option of making use of Jackie’s exceptional venue in Hilton to host your event, or you can chat to Jackie about catering at your chosen venue.
We understand the importance of your hopes and your dreams. This is why we are dedicated to providing you with the most memorable day that will last a lifetime.

The other supplier who played a major part [in my wedding] was Jackie Cameron. She gave exceptional advice on all aspects of planning a wedding. She incorporated all my ideas into the food and her professionalism was put to the test under difficult circumstances. Her food was exceptional and a real 5-star eating experience.
