Esther Botha

It was in 2012, at the age of 50, that Chef Esther decided to do a Chefs course. She was involved in the food industry for a couple of years at the time. She was strongly advised against it by a Chef already in the industry, but decided to go ahead and get the training regardless. Chef Esther and her daughter paid a visit to Maboneng one Sunday, when they saw JCPS Chef’s School. Jarlyne was very welcoming to them, took them around the premises and gave all the necessary information. It felt like a cloak has been put on her shoulders and she knew that this was the place and the people she wanted to do my course through! Chef Esther enrolled for the Culinary Arts diploma in 2015 -2016. Two of the most difficult years but also two of the best years of her life so far!!! Chef Esther was offered a Hospitality teaching position at the end of 2016 and stayed until 2017. Chef Esther resigned at the end of 2017 to start her very own business from home.
