Morné Christian Smith
About This Project
We recently had the honour of interviewing Morné Christian Smith, in celebration of the meal on our Autumn Menu named after him.
Morné’s meal is the half star anise marinated chicken with sweet potato and pak choi.
What is your profession?
I am an Interior Designer.
What was your dream job when you were growing up?
I actually wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I did my first year at UPE, but soon realised that I would miss being creative… Societi Bistro’s Tuna Steak makes up for it from time-to-time!
How do you feel about appearing on the Societi Bistro menu and the Morné Christian Smith in particular?
It was a big surprise to have been featured last year, the dish was a big hit and I actually only got to taste it twice as it was always sold out. This year, I am humbled to have been featured again… Societi Bistro is like family to me.
One of your most inspiring experiences in your career to date?
Being in my dream career and being a Designer in/from Africa is a great inspiration. The world is looking at Africa/South Africa for inspiration and it is great being a part of that.
Any memories you would like to share about Societi Bistro?
I have had many special moments at Societi Bistro… I celebrated the life of my late partner at Societi Bistro, incredible moments with special friends, many birthdays including last year, which was made extra special by my friends and everyone at Societi Bistro… This year, I’ll celebrate my 40th and it will definitely include a night at Societi Bistro! The best is probably is just a glass of red wine, chips and homemade Mayo on a rainy day in ‘The Snug’ with my partner… special moments!
The Morné Christian Smith is available on the Societi Bistro Autumn Menu.
