I think we all agree: it’s time to eat better! A fast-growing number of people have started moving away from the Standard American Diet (SAD), which many have found to be unhealthy. Scores of health-conscious folks, parents in particular, are on the look-out for wholesome foods with which to replace their families’ sugar- and carbohydrate rich meals in the face of a growing lifestyle disease (cholesterol, diabetes, stroke and heart disease, among others) storm.
The saying, ‘You are what you eat’, rings ominously true in this the 21st century. We are now realising that the foods we eat have an impact on every living cell in the human body, from the skin, nails and hair to all our internal organs and intestines. It is a time in the world’s history where families can make all the difference to their lives in their own homes. Gone are the days where we can blame it all on convenience and being too busy. Large numbers of health-conscious citizens are turning to cooking schools and are enrolling for classes in droves.

KeTala Chefs Academy is another prestigious alternative. This culinary school is located on a smallholding in the east of Pretoria. KeTala (“It’s Green” in Northern Sotho) strives to imbue a holistic and natural philosophy in their students. All produce is ‘home-grown’ and even the spices used in the kitchen are produced on the smallholding, with students lending a hand in cultivating the produce. Students are involved in working the soil, growing vegetables, harvesting fruits, herbs and nuts. This hands-on experience definitely defines anyone, who studies here, as not just another culinary student or chef. Students, additionally, benefit from growing and caring for their own produce, thus knowing exactly what they are putting into pots, pans, onto plates and, ultimately, into tummies. The training programme has a 5-star rating, which calls for all elements to be prepared in the kitchen and no condiment is brought in from outside the premises. With the standards the founders set, they believe that they have established the premier training facility for chefs in South Africa.
