Culinary Kitchen School Opens at BON Hotel Midrand

Celebrity Chef Citrum Khumalo and the BON Hotel Group have announced that their new venture, Asidle Culinary Kitchen and The Black Pepper Bar, is officially open.

Coined as Africa’s premium culinary and hospitality skills development centre, the culinary school, Culinary Passions School of Hospitality (CPSH), was launched earlier this month.

Located at the refurbished restaurant venue at BON Hotel Midrand, the culinary school–cum-restaurant is the result of a desire to bring young African chefs into the industry.

Khumalo is expanding his internationally accredited culinary school to “give young chefs the ultimate culinary learning environment - a ’live’ operating restaurant where patrons could taste a wide variety of foods.”

Students will be exposed to the skill of Chef Khumalo who comes with a host of accolades - celebrity chef, owner of the CPSH, President of African Chefs United and The Culinary Arts Association of South Africa (CAASA).

BON Hotels have facilitated and provided the venue and equipment.

Driven by attracting tourists to experience African hospitality, the main restaurant will provide a wide variety of top South African food offerings, including the traditional and very popular "shisanyama" experience, and the Black Pepper Bar will be hosts to jazz nights, comedy hours and township-based entertainment groups.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
