The Old Government House Hotel has welcomed Japhia Ellaya to its Curry Room as the hotel's new Chef in Charge.
Originally from Phoenix in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), she is a Culinary Arts graduate from the International Hotel School (HIS), in Durban.
Between 2012 and 2013, she attained distinctions for every one of her certificates and was awarded the ‘Christina Martin Most Outstanding Student of the Year’ award at the end of her course.
Ms Ellaya completed her practical training at The Oyster Box Hotel, a luxury five star hotel in South Africa, which is also part of the Red Carnation Group and in 2015 she was promoted to Chef De Partie.
Of the challenge that awaits her, Ms Ellaya says, “knowing that Chef Kevin has the confidence in me to make a success, makes me very proud. He’s entrusting me to carry on with what he started at The Governor’s Curry Room and giving me the chance to do something really important for my career.”
