Two Capetonians have been selected to train with Britains celebrity chef Jamie Oliver as part of his Fifteen Foundation programme for disadvantaged young people, the local paper The Star reports. Zimasile Mzamo of Khayelitsha and Goliath Booysen of Stellenbosch will learn about the food and hospitality industries alongside other recruits in London. The programme includes training with professional chefs, including 31-year-old Oliver, and practical experience at one of the foundations restaurants. This is what Ive been waiting for its the opportunity of a lifetime, said Mzamo on hearing the news. I want to create food with a good taste and that is full of nutrition, he added.

Since its inception in 2004, the Fifteen Foundation programme has offered skills and career opportunities to dozens of young people from difficult backgrounds. Two people from South Africa are chosen for the programme every year.
