Capsicum Port Elizabeth graduate, Jasmin Marsal was recently selected to join the SA Junior Culinary team of under 25’s. The competition was fierce, but Jasmin’s winning menu of Salmon Two Ways, Rack of Lamb and Deconstructed Lemon Meringue sealed the deal.
Jasmin’s advice to young chefs is to do their utmost to start working under a good mentor chef as you will receive recognition for whom you have worked for. She is currently working at Silver Star Casino as the CDP for Chef George Georgiou who was honoured this year by being inducted into the World Chefs Academy. Chef George, Silver Star and HSC support Jasmin’s ambitions by sponsoring her ingredients for her practice runs.
Jasmin and her team will be competing at the International Young Chef’s Challenge in Korea in November 2013 and she will also be part of the South African Olympic Team in 2016.
