Karien, our owner, fell in love with a premium ice cream brand whilst working as a chef in London. This was her treat of choice on her off-days.
She was never quite fond of ice cream as a child, but soon realised that that was because South Africa wasn't the country where homemade and good quality ice cream was well known or readily available.
Upon her return she worked a few years as a fine dining pastry chef and learned skills from many well known chefs.
When an opportunity presented itself in 2011, she grabbed it and WhiskAway was born.
