About Zanele

Having come from humble beginnings and growing up in the village of Bergville in Kwa Zulu Natal, Zanele Van Zyl has successfully managed to turn her passion into a career.


As a young girl, she grew up watching her mother cook soulful traditional food. It was only after she met her husband who challenged her in the kitchen with his cooking skills that she discovered her passion and talent in culinary arts. She was then inspired to study and qualify as a professional chef.
