Vincent de Villiers
Vincent studied at ICA Chef School in Stellenbosch, where he enrolled for an advanced diploma in professional cheffing and pastry.
After completion of his course, Vincent started working at Terrroir restaurant as the front of house manager. That same year Terroir was awarded the much coveted “Eat Out Restaurant of the Year”, as well as the “Eat Out Service Award of the Year” (Oscars of South Africa’s restaurant industry)
Later Vincent joined Marcel’s Frozen Yoghurt as the head product developer. He developed a few ice cream flavours for Woolworths specifically, that can still be found on the shelves today, like the Vanilla Straciatella, as well as the Mint Stracciatella. Marcel’s Frozen Yoghurt was the first ice cream company to commercially produce a stracciatella ice cream, thanks to Vincent that corresponded with a company in the USA to manufacture a custom-made machine for the application. That year he won two gold medals at the South African Dairy Awards for his Vanilla Stracciatella Ice Cream, as well as his Mint Stracciatella Ice Cream.
Vincent joined the team at Capital Hotel School in February 2019, forming part of the Hospitalit-e team, where their primary focus is in-service training for various clients. Vincent is a facilitator in this department, as well as an administrator and material writing for new units will be his main focus.
Vincent has a big passion for travelling, collecting rare tropical plants, collecting antique furniture and loves all kinds of dogs. Needless to say, eating out and cooking is his biggest passion.
