Sanet Princeloo’s Story

to read the full story click on the headline

I was born and bred in Windhoek. Attended Dagbreek and and Eros Primary schools and then moved on to WHS. I never really enjoyed cooking as a youngster, but well the eating part. I wanted to study drama, but my Dad said I should first get a proper degree behind my name, so I decided to do a BSc Home Economics degree at Kovsies in Bloemfontein. During my studies, which were very scientific, I started entertaining and cooking for friends.

I finished my degree at the end of ‘91, Namibia was 1 year old and became part of the Commonwealth, which meant that Namibian youngsters could get a 2-year working holiday Visa for the UK, so Sanet was first in line.

To keep myself busy I help organizing the Meatco National Braai Competition every year, for the last five years I organize a Chefs theatre for Checkers at the Tourism Expo. I judge various cooking competitions –of which the Checkers boerewors is the biggest.

I was bullied into the Chefs Association by Chef Terry Jenkinson and Tom Mutavdzic about 5 years ago. I am so proud of how far we have come over the last few years and for this I have to thank my co-sufferers Tom Mutavdzic Chantelle Loteryman, Elke Mutavdzic, Anthony Rossouw, Janina Clinning, David Thomas, Annelise van der Merwe, telephonic advice from Chef Gamma, lots of advice from my friends in the South African chefs fraternity, too many fantastic people to mention.


 

 

Chantel Loteryman's Story

I started to cook at a very young age, but soon did realise that the kitchen bug would give me a huge bite! That's why I decided to study Chef at The Polytechnic Hotel School under the tutor of Rudolf Imhoff. During this course I started working for Kalahari Sands Hotel and Casino, which I had the opportunity to work with renowned Chef Conrad Gallagher.

Returning to Windhoek I decided I wanted to start my own business. I am now a Freelance Chef and Catering for Hunting Farms, Lodges, Deli’s, Functions, Corporate Functions, Ceremony’s, Platters for Business meetings and give training in Kitchen Hygiene and Training.

Since 2005 I am an active member of the Namibian Chefs Association (NCA); I was elected as the Vice President of the NCA in 2009. I have also been a judge for various cooking competitions.

I have had the pleasure of cooking for some high profile people namely Actors and Politicians and would be keen on cooking for you some day.
