Star chef from Bredasdorp

A student from the Private Hotel School has once again been named Young Star Chef of the Year, a second consecutive win for the renowned hospitality institution.

This year’s One&Only Reaching for Young Stars competition was won by 21-year old Oigen Kaptein, a student at the tertiary institution’s Stellenbosch campus, whose prize includes an intensive three week internship at the gold listed Condé Nast Traveller One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius.

Kaptein, has also been awarded a five month working experience at Winslow’s Tavern, a highly esteemed and top heritage restaurant in Cape Cod, Massachusetts run by South Africans Phillip and Tracey Hunt.

Last year, the school’s Rutendo Ruth Marovatsanga walked away with the same prestigious title and won an internship at the One&Only The Palms and the One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai.

The One&Only Reaching for Young Stars Competition, which was held recently in Cape Town, had a panel of nine judges headed up by Reuben Riffel and including Marieta Human, Brian McCune, Guy Webber, Julietta e Silva, Kyle Hickman, Luvo Ntezo, Marlvin Gwese and Penelope Horwood.

Kaptein, who hails from Bredasdorp in the Western Cape, and is currently completing his final internship work-integrated learning block at Asara Hotel to complete the Occupational Chef Certificate, not only picked up the Young Star Chef of the Year award, but was also awarded top honours in two other categories, including the “Ultimate Lancewood Dessert” and the “Best Food and Wine Pairing” (along with fellow TPHS student Liam Smith).

A delighted Kaptein said: “I chose the hospitality industry because it’s a passion which I know will become a lifelong career and not just provide employment. My curiosity for the culinary industry was ignited while I was working with my mother who is also a chef.

“I would like to open my own restaurant one day and to go overseas to experience the food cuisines of different countries. I’m sure winning this competition will help me explore more and I am grateful for the opportunity!”
