Katlego Mlambo is heading to London to take up the Head Chef role at the Award-Winning Kudu restaurant!
London, United Kingdom (21 August 2022) – Chef Katlego Mlambo went from his granny’s kitchen in Eldorado Park to the fabulous Marabi Club in Maboneng and then onto TV screens around the world with his own TV show… and now the incredible South African cook is set to WOW Londoners as he takes up the head chef residency at the award-winning Kudu restaurant!
Born in Johannesburg and educated at the Silwood School of Cookery in Cape Town, Katlego’s first placement was at La Colombe, a restaurant that has been named on the World’s Best List for three years running. He has also done stints at The Roundhouse and other top culinary establishments.
“I cut my teeth under the leadership of some of the country’s most talented and celebrated chefs, including Luke Dale Roberts of The Test Kitchen and John Shuttleworth of Rust en Vrede,” he explains to wine.co.za.
And now, the talented chef is ready to share his skills with the world! According to Restaurant Recs, Katlego is ready for this next adventure… and London is calling.
“I am heading to London, and the reason for that is basically growth. I have worked with wonderful cooks, and one of my mates, Patrick Williams, is generating some amazingly delicious foodstuff in London. I like South Africa, but I feel that to be the chef I want to be, I must have practical experience abroad.”
Run by a young husband and wife team who have attracted a fun and young local clientele. Kudu is making waves in London.
‘Kudu Collective‘ is a family-run group of restaurants, cocktail and wine bar, gallery and private dining room in Peckham. Their menus are shaped by the seasons, creative plates that combine great produce with a splash of imagination.
“Our South African roots inspire our food and drinks – whether that’s slow cooking in a potjie pot over hot coals, baking our delicious Kudu bread or stirring our braai negroni.”
Patrick and Amy say they were brought together by their love of good food and a closely held dream to create special places where we can share our favourite dishes with friends and neighbours.
