Besele Moses Moloi
The Jamie Oliver Cooking Show inspired Besele Moses Moloi in his pursuit of becoming a chef. His resumé includes working at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Florida internationally and locally at Greenhouse Restaurant, the Saxon Hotel’s Grei Restaurant and, more recently, as head chef at FYN in Cape Town.
Chef Besele was trained in French cuisine. The South American concept was somehow an exciting challenge for him, which he had the most fun researching, learning, and adapting to.
“When I worked at FYN as the head chef, I did a lot of Japanese cuisine and there are similarities between ceviche and sashimi. So I brought some of my experience of working at FYN and mixed it up with the new concept of doing South American food, blending the two.”Besele Moses Moloi
Today Chef Besele, Former Head Chef at Zioux in Sandton, has been identified as one of the most promising chefs in South Africa’s kitchen. He recently opened his own restaurant, Gigi. He aims to bring it greatness, recognition, and awards, and strategically use his culinary talents to put it on a pedestal.
