Fashion designer and style icon Jenny Le Roux of Habits recently answered a few questions for us in celebration of the Apple & Pancetta Risotto on the Autumn Menu being named after her.
What was your dream job when you were growing up?
Going down the ramp at my first Fashion Show!
What does a typical day in your working life look like?
One of your most frightening experiences in your career to date?
The first time I won the South African Fashion Award.
What is your favourite question to ask a prospective employee?
Overtime is part of the job.
What is your favourite leisure activity?
Bagging books as they come out.
How do you feel about appearing on the Societi Bistro menu and your Pancetta Risotto in particular?
You’ve hit the nail on the head – Societi Bistro’s risotto is my absolute favourite. I can’t seem to order any of the other delicious things!
What is your favourite food to indulge in?
Chocolate Nemesis and a glass of De Grendel Koetshuis.
Any memories you would like to share about Societi Bistro?
Yes, on my birthday two years ago, our waiter came to our table stripped to the waist (good body!) with my birthday cake!
