Managing Director, Nigel Sand, shares his story as starting out as one of the youngest recognized executive chefs at the Southern Sun. His passion for cooking led him to this amazing journey where the idea of Hackle Brooke emerged.

15 years later, Nigel Sand and Operations Manager Dudu Masondo (part of the top 40 woman in MICE in 2015) have made Hackle Brooke what it is today and we would like show you why it is that Hackle Brooke is one of Joburg’s best kept secrets… –
