The fourth annual HTA School of Culinary Art Legacy Young Chef Competition recently took place, allowing HTA School of Culinary Art’s 2nd year students to showcase and hone their skills and test themselves against their peers before entering industry.

The Ten finalists were:

  • Callum Hewitt
  • Crystal Zondi
  • Dante Mitri
  • Devon Holman
  • Dimpho Machaba
  • Dylan Price
  • Martha Mokgadinyane
  • Monica Alexander
  • Muhammed Uzair Khan
  • Tiandra Nain

The finalists were selected through a cook-off between semi-finalists, who were in turn chosen based on their overall performance and marks over the last 2 years. Each finalist was awarded with a Legacy Competition Hamper filled with wonderful prizes from the contributing sponsors. The winner of the competition was Devon Holman, with Dylan Price and Dante Mitri placing second and third respectively.

The judging panel comprised of Executive Chefs from leading Establishments, Hospitality Industry Experts and last years’ Winner of the Legacy Competition 2018, Anelisiwe Ntamo. Head Judge Chef Arnold Tanzer said that he’d been really surprised by the high standard of food presented to the judges, considering that the students are just at the beginning of their careers and was sure that they would go on to “cook like superstars”.
