The 54-year-old restaurateur has published three cookbooks, he runs a food truck, market stalls and he has featured on the popular Mzansi culinary television shows Master Chef and the Ultimate Braai Master. Goffe-Wood prepared a grilled dry aged t-bone, served with rocket and charred onion salad, chips and masala butter.
