A wonderful initiative was taken today when our kitchen discovered that we had a young food enthusiast at Singita Lebombo Lodge. Clara, an 11 year old from Texas, was invited into the kitchen to make pizzas and other pastries with Ishal our current pastry chef. From the moment we invited Clara to join the kitchen team she has not stopped smiling.

Clara with Ishal.

In the kitchen Ishal taught Clara how to use the various knives, how to make pizza base dough and she chose all of her favourite toppings. Clara also helped prepare lunch for the rest of her family and we hope they enjoyed her fantastic dishes!

Thanks to everyone in the kitchen for making Clara’s day.
