Mexican Monday


Capsicum hosts a #MexicanMonday  with acclaimed Mexican Chef

Capsicum's Pretoria's campus played host to Mexican Chef, Alam Mendez Florian, on Monday. Chef Florian demonstrated his impressive set of culinary skills to top-achieving students at SA's leading culinary school.

The demonstration which consisted of magical flavours and spicy aroma, was held in preparation of the first edition of the prestigious Miss Latina South Africa competition, taking place in November this year. 

Being his second day in the country, Chef Florian said that working with the Capsicum students was enjoyable and he really liked the country.

Ït is only my second day here. But I really like it," Chef Florian.

The students were also intrigued by the tricks and the Mexican dishes Chef Florian showed them.

Lorraine Ntleru who is in her second phase said, "It fits in nicely because our courses are internationally based. Our cuisines are French, so it's good to be exposed to international cultures and cuisines."

With a few Mexican dishes under their sleeve, the Capsicum Pretoria students are one step closer to cooking for Miss Latina SA.
