Tshepo Makajane grew up in Virginia in the Free State. He was studying electrical engineering but his father noticed his passion from cooking through all the hosting he would do for family and friends. His father decided that he should stop everything else and pursue his culinary passion. Tshepo's goal is to learn as much as possible so he can to hopefully one day open his own restaurant. He would also love to go overseas to study further and learn more skills. "My father is the sole reason why I love to cook as he’s a man of great appetite."
