PAST GRADUATES

GRADUATES SUCCESSES

Past graduates have excelled in the industry and run top kitchens in Cape Town.

Chefs Warehouse Beau Constantia, Crystal Towers Hotel & The Greenhouse at Cellars Hohenort to name a few.
Others have gone on to open their own business such as The Creamery, Woodstock Bakery, Obi and Shesha Catering. We like to think that our course gave them that little bit extra to achieve their goals.
