Innovative, daring and unique – three words to describe her cocktails. Adri Ford, our Mixologist at Somerset West’s finest hot spot Nom Nom Eateries, is the expert behind the colourful and delicious cocktails everyone tastes.

Originally from the winelands in Stellenbosch, she studied in the City of Cape Town where she completed her Hospitality Management Diploma at Damelin. Adri always had a passion for producing amazing food and used the same artistry in creating unique cocktails to please various pallets.

Prior to joining us at Nom Nom, Adri worked for Carnival Cruise Lines managing the new onboard bar experience and established a small catering and mixology business as well. Adri has won the BCC (Bacardi Cruise Competition) for two years in a row in 2012 and 2013, being the first African female consecutive winner.

Additionally, Adri was offered the opportunity to compete for the MIB (Most Imaginative Bartender for Bombay) in Las Vegas during 2013.

Nom Nom fans can expect new trends and standards to be set by Adri which will leave your taste buds wanting more! Adri recommends that every time you visit Nom Nom you should try something new because we are about the experience.

Adri can’t really choose one cocktail as her favourite as she feels it’s like “asking a mother to choose between her children.” They are all delicious and you will find yourself saying Nom Nom!

If Adri is not whipping out some flavoursome cocktails, you can catch her on the dance floor as dancing is her next favourite thing to do. She looks forward to creating flavourful cocktails for guests that visit our eatery!
