Lentswe is a Durban High School (DHS) Alumni and has accomplished many great things in his career to make KZN proud.

“Six months ago, I had a coffee date with my manager and I said to him I don’t know what it is but a part of me just wants to sit at a long table with strangers, friends, family and just have them experience Africa the same way I have experienced it over the past three years through food. That is how Taste Africa was borne,” says the enthusiastic Chef Lentswe who has spent a great part of his career travelling around Africa to learn about the different cuisines and honing his skills as an African cuisine specialist who has proven to be a force to be reckoned with.
