Limpopo Chefs Academy Info:

While the province is rich in wildlife and luxe lodges, Limpopo has never had many training providers servicing the Hospitality industry. Seeing the gap in the market, Chef Tommie Hurter opened Limpopo Chefs Academy in Mokopane.

Limpopo is a province known for its vast cultural heritage and history, but not for its academic excellence.

LIMPOPO CHEFS ACADEMY (LCA) AIMS TO CHANGE THIS VIEW!

Owner and founder, Chef Tommie Hurter, graduate of the Capital Hotel School, worked in Canada before returning to Pretoria to open up The Fly Lounge in Pretoria East. When visiting his home province of Limpopo, he was offered a position at Fusion Boutique Hotel before joining the Waterberg FET College as chef lecturer. 

This is where he discovered his passion for teaching and to carry over his knowledge of the Hospitality Industry.

Aiming to produce high quality scholars and chefs, Limpopo Chefs Academy offers a number of services that aren’t found in the area, namely training in wines and viticulture. The Academy has received a vast amount of support from various hotel groups and hospitality service providers, as the Number 1 choice for training and skills development for existing employees.

Shaping Peoples Future

“Shaping People’s Future” is the slogan of Limpopo Chefs Academy (LCA), which opened its doors in 2014, to provide all-round training in the hospitality industry.

The Campuses at 82 Rabe Street, Mokopane and 21 Sapphire Street, Polokwane, Limpopo Province, offers state-of-the-art facilities to ensure that students get the most desirable quality training available.

LCA prides itself on its high standards of excellence and growing reputation within the hospitality industry.
