Singita Kruger National Park recently opened a brand new state-of-the-art facility which is situated between the Singita Lebombo Lodge kitchen and dining room and has been constructed in the style of a demonstration studio. The gleaming kitchen is home to the students of a rigorous Singita-crafted professional culinary course, which produces 10 internationally qualified commis chefs every year.
The Singita Community Culinary School offers a unique programme that serves to fulfill a real need in the nearby community, as well as for the South African hospitality industry as a whole. Graduates emerge from the school with highly sought-after skills and strong employment prospects, while kitchens at Singita lodges and those further afield benefit from a pool of expertly-trained young chefs.
Students spend time learning the basics in the demonstration studio which operates as a fully-functioning practical and theory classroom, followed by hands-on experience in the five Singita lodge kitchens across South Africa.
