  • The best moment at Capsicum Culinary Studio was cooking my first dish in my new uniform as a Chef. My proudest moment was on graduation night when I received the Capsicum Culinary Studio Ambassador Award for being the best student at the Johannesburg campus, and finally graduating! I now run my own company “Kutlwano Food Connoisseurs”, based in Johannesburg and I hold the creative connoisseur position, thanks to my head start at Capsicum Culinary Studio. I love creating dishes that describe my personality, and I am inspired by my will to learn more about food and satisfying my clients.

  • After my studies at Capsicum, I went back home to Uganda and started my own catering company. Two years later I went to France to study French Pastry and learned more about French cuisine. After my course I moved to Sweden. I am currently the Pastry Chef at American Table in Clarion Hotel Stockholm, Sweden. I have so many good memories from Capsicum, but the highlights were definitely creating recipes from our mystery baskets; trips to organic farmers markets; the Good Food and Wine Show and getting together with other Chefs from the South African Chefs Association. The reason I love being a Chef, is the satisfaction I get when I see happy customers taking pictures of their plates as soon as it arrives and then later saying they enjoyed their meal. This is the reason I keep going.
