Lentswe Bhengu

Born and raised in KwaZulu Natal, Lentswe Bhengu has been passionate about food and dining since his early teens. But it was only after working in the finance industry for five years that, in 2010, he switched his suit and tie for a chef’s jacket and enrolled at the Culinary Academy in the Cape Winelands.  He then worked at leading restaurants like the Savoy Cabbage, The Roundhouse Restaurant and Saucisse Deli in Cape Town before beginning South Africa’s first food web series, ‘Africa on a Plate’, which is currently airing on US television.
