The Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine #20172018 students are well into the practical placement segment of our curriculum, and the #20182019 are progressing through the course material proficiently, and in good time.
Courtney Stuart was the first student to be accepted for the 2018/2019 intake at the Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine.
It’s seldom that one can leave one’s entire wedding feast to a group of students - and it is testament to the quality of the aspiring chefs at Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine that I could do just that.
Last weekend Jackie Cameron School of Food & Wine, once again, turned out in support of the Hilton Arts Festival – and what a treat it was. The students have coined the phrase “team work makes the dream work” – and this proved appropriate at the popular annual event.
"In honour of National Braai Day, Jackie Cameron has given us recipes for a sensational potato bake and delicious lemon meringue, as well as an amazing salad created by one of her top students, Jordin Shelly." - Brettenwood Coastal Estate Magazine
It was an honour to have been asked to submit recipes for The Great South African Cook Book (Quivertree Publications) that showcases 67 chefs, cooks and bakers who contribute to our country’s diverse and creative culinary industry.
"She makes the most comforting curry, the heartiest pies and a killer tart. And that’s not just your mother we’re talking about. We convinced South African food pros, from Reuben Riffel and Zola Nene to Ina Paarman and Dorah Sitole, to share the most treasured of their mothers’ recipes." - Taste Magazine
Georg Lens’ mother, Cindy, was responsible for all the sign writing at the school. I suggest you commission her/WALLCANDY for any wallpaper, painting and design requirements you may have. Georg too came to the school’s first open day but I believe his idea of becoming a chef was cemented after he attended a Teens Cooking Class.
Costas Christodoulou signed up a week before we opened this year. We often laugh about how busy he kept me those last few days before school started. Costas had considered doing a culinary course when he finished school, a few years ago. He, however, completed a Bachelor of Business Administration and Advanced Certificate in Professional Photography courses before committing himself to becoming a chef.
Cheri Kustner was the first student that I accepted for this year’s intake. I remember her coming to the school’s first open day, when the last group of students were still here and I knew from that moment that she was going to excel - her enthusiasm was tangible.
