Boksburg Team


  • My best memories are speaking to and researching recipes with my mentor Chef Liberty from the Boksburg campus. He was not only my lecturer but I could also always consult him with any culinary related issue any time of the day. Pastry was my passion and Capsicum is my stepping stone into a whole new world. I am currently studying a BA degree in Culinary Arts at the Cesar Ritz College in Le Bouveret, Switzerland. I would like to do a few more internships in Copenhagen and England before returning to Johannesburg to open my own Patisserie.

  • After my industry training at Carnival City, I now own a coffee shop at Germiston (Imperial General Motors). In future I would like to I would like to see myself studying further at Capsicum to gain more knowledge as chef and owning a big restaurant and helping others. My advice to all aspiring chefs is that you must love what you do and know what you love best, you must be willing to work hard and long hours.
