Guests at Singita Lebombo and Sweni Lodges will be treated to a new demonstration studio at Singita Lebombo, an opportunity to recreate Liam Tomlin, chef, dishes with Singita’s cooking classes and visit the overhauled Culinary School.
As part of this, 10 candidates selected from surrounding communities will embark on a 12-month course and they will spend time learning the basics at the new cooking school, followed by stints working in the five lodge kitchens in South Africa.
Equipped with culinary skills and hands-on experience in high-level kitchens, graduates leave with the know-how and confidence to apply for a commis chef position in any professional kitchen.
Working with Tomlin, was drawn by fresh, local ingredients and dishes and has created a menu of deceptively simple, pared-down dishes. Singita Lebombo’s new demonstration studio will offer guests a unique opportunity to see these dishes come to life.
