In 2019, the False Bay TVET College Muizenberg Campus, known for its exceptional Hospitality and Catering graduates were approached by the Afternoon Express Show to not only host the competition qualifying heats but to include a selection of N6 Hospitality students to partake in the SABC 3 Taste Master Competition. 

The Competition places SA’s hottest culinary talent to the test with a series of challenging tasks, in the hopes of the winner becoming the resident chef on Afternoon Express. 

A welcome introduction to competitive cooking and presentation, the College students didn’t make the final cut in the televised kitchens, but their talents and skills did not go unnoticed. Five of the False Bay TVET College Hospitality and Catering N6 students were invited to complete their 18 months in-service training with SABC 3. 

Not your conventional internship, the learning experience and exposure the students received over the period was exceptionally insightful. 

While under the guardianship of mentor Ms Sharon Worrall, intern placement specialist, she uncovered hidden talents and skills amongst the interns. Ms Worrall said, “We have been so delighted with level of talent and the general well roundedness of the interns, they have been exposed to a wide variety of skills and have taken up the challenge and really made the most of the opportunity.”

“The interns have added a real layer of skill to our production team and we are extremely proud of the way in which they are progressing. They have added a lot of value to our team” says Patience Stevens owner of Morning Expresso and Afternoon Express.

Miss Mookho Motseki, who in addition to her hospitality training specialises in make-up and skin care was afforded the opportunity to share the stage with the segment host to demonstrate the Afriderm product range. 

The ladies, Aneeba Sabodien, Miss Kelly Damon, Siya Moyi and Tiffany shared the screen with the programme hosts for a special Heritage Day cooking segment. 

College Principal, Karin Hendricks has always said “Every College student that graduates with us has the knowledge, skills and attributes to add value in the workplace.” Further than the learnt skills and knowledge, False Bay TVET College provide opportunities and a space for all students to be part of an inclusive and safe environment where other abilities and talents are encouraged.
