HISTORY

Purchased in April 2009 as an extension to their world renowned chef school,The Fusion Cooking School, Chefs Shaun Smith & Caryn England host Fusion World Food Café in the ever-vibey Silvervause Centre on the Berea. Shop 4, Silvervause Centre, is very special to us as we share a long association with these premises where the former AKA & theStore restaurants once stood.

Prior to Quarters, Caz was Sous Chef at Kim Williamson’s highly acclaimed AKA restaurant which successfully ran here at these premises from 1999 to 2002 before relocating to Granny Mouse's Country House in the midlands. Through-out the years Shaun and Caz have also trained and supplied many student chefs to theStore as well as many other top restaurants in Durban. So when the opportunity arose for us purchase this space we were honoured and grateful to be back in Shop 4 Silvervause Centre to make this again a foodie destination on the culinary map of South Africa.

Shaun, ex-regional chef of Woolworths, and Caz, ex-Executive chef of Quarters Hotel, are co-principals of The Fusion Cooking School in Westville and their global, trendy, modern, health-conscious cuisine showcases the very best of world food flavours with strong Asian influence & elements of molecular gastronomy (as even demonstrated on TopBilling TV).

This unique and highly innovative establishment, run by a passionate and dedicated team of principals, lecturers, past and present students from The Fusion Cooking School, is famed for truly unique offerings such as super-tender Beef Fillet cooked in a dishwasher, Pretzels poached in Caustic Soda, and Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream created tableside in front of your very own eyes!

Vegetarian, Venison & Fish dishes also feature strongly as does a Platinum award-wining winelist, including the only certified wine in KZN from Abingdon Estate in Lions River in the Midlands. There are also a large range of cocktails, brandies, whiskies and single malts to choose from.
