Chef Gideon of Padkos
Chef Gideon brings the tastes of South Africa to Northern Utah.
Gideon’s love for food started at the age of 5, when he used to accompany his grandmother to the Meals on Wheels Kitchen where she cooked food for 200 people every day for over 30 years. He had a special bond with her and that bond made him fall in love with the industry. Cooking has since became more intense and turned into a passion.
At 12 Gideon worked at a friend’s family butchery. “I had one task and one task only, to stuff sausage, miles and miles of sausage.” He worked there for 4 years and then moved to the catering industry where his family had a small catering business they ran from their home.
Gideon spent the last 22 years both in front of the house as a server selling the food and back of the house cooking and baking.
Gideon brings his passion for food in the form of traditional South African cuisine to Utah to share the rich flavors and tastes of the rainbow nation, South Africa.
