Originally from Eastridge in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town, Ebie’s story begins a decade ago in the esteemed halls of The Test Kitchen, where he first dipped his toes in the world of hospitality.

“The kitchen gave me stability and a sense of community,” he reflects. “I felt that I was being taken care of and uplifted by people who chose me for this position. Their constant support was a stepping stone to levels I could only dream of previously.”
