    Who we are?

    About the South African Chefs Academy

    While heading up kitchens at hotels and restaurants, SA Chefs Academy founders saw how students and graduates came into the industry without the necessary skills or confidence they needed to succeed. The South African Chefs Academy opened to bridge the gap. Since its inception in 2004, the academy has strived to provide a practical course for chefs by chefs without the added extras that are not relevant to the kitchen. We teach the classic French repertoire of cookery and believe that the best way for students to learn is through daily practical training.
