Four young, up-and-coming chefs were sent to Shanghai by the South African Chefs Association where they won Bronze at the Young Chefs Challenge.


Shanghai, China – A group of South Africans took off to Shanghai to compete against some of the world’s best young chefs. They worked hard and earned themselves the bronze at the Young Chefs Challenge.

The group, made up of four young chefs, flew the South African flag high in Shanghai. The team members are Siyabulela Kobo (Team Manager), Calson Madlala, Njabulo Hlengwa, Chantal Molnar and Hope Mdakane.

The South African Chefs Association represent the best chefs in South Africa. The association is part of the World Association of Chefs Societies (Worldchefs). It is through this organisation that South Africa is able to compete against the best in the world.

“SA Chefs aims to have a significant impact on the careers of the chefs with whom we share the knowledge that our members have acquired through international food promotions, competitions, workshops, educational conferences and various other learning experiences.”

The bronze award is the second award the young chefs have received in the last two weeks, they also brought home a silver from the African Culinary Cup.

The young chefs will continue to chase the gold and while they do so, we are inspired day in and day out by their efforts. Take a look at their victorious smiles below.
