The Western Cape campus can be found in the buzzing student town of Stellenbosch. Located in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, the campus boasts two modern practical kitchens and two theory classrooms. A picturesque town known for great food and wine, Stellenbosch is also rich in history. The town is small enough that the entire centre can easily be covered on foot, making commuting in the student hub easy and accessible. For students coming from afar or abroad, there are plenty of student accommodation options close to the campus.
‘Don’t be scared to try new things, don’t always play it safe, experiment and make mistakes and ask lots of questions, there is never a stupid question.’
‘Well since I can remember I was always the different individual amongst my family and peers, I accepted this as an opportunity to pave my own path, instead of following the larger crowd. There are few things in life that connects us all as humans, one of them is food and I enjoy connecting with others through food.’
‘It’s not about the glam and it most definitely is not a job, it is all about passion and what value you can add to the industry of food, the science of creation.’
‘Be a sponge” – ask questions, write everything down, research and steal with your eyes.’
