MASERU - The Lesotho Chefs Association (LCA) hosted the Minister’s Fine Dinner Event for the affiliated ministries to officially introduce the association to the government of Lesotho.

LCA is a non-profit organisation that represents chefs, cooks and caterers at all levels - from the grass root level all the way to the professional chef. Cabinet ministers who attended the event included Deputy Prime Minister Monyane Moleleki, Minister of Trade and Industry Habofanoe Lehana, Minister of Tourism, Environment and Culture Joang Molapo and Deputy Minister of Education ’Maphoka Motoboli. This event followed a press conference that was held on March 27, which was powered by the tourism ministry.

The theme centered around the mission and values of LCA and most importantly how the association can impact positively on the Sustainable Development Goals of Lesotho. The event also hosted chefs from both the Chefs Associations of South Africa and Zimbabwe. The Chairperson of LCA Chef Donald Moletsane thanked the present ministers for attending the show and being witnesses to efforts by Basotho youth who are advocating for the acknowledgement of the culinary art.

In his remarks Mr Molapo applauded LCA for being on the right track towards ensuring that the sector partnered with the Arts and Culture Unit of the Ministry of Tourism to boost the Tourism Attraction endeavours into Lesotho. He urged the association to continue hosting events of that nature to increase the visibility of its vision. “Doors are open to explore further possibilities,” the minister also showed. LCA’s core purpose is to set and maintain the highest level of culinary excellence, food standards and professionalism all over Lesotho. It accomplishes these goals through the transfer of skills and the upliftment of individuals and members.

One of its many objectives is to have a significant impact on the careers of the chefs with whom it shares the knowledge that its members have acquired through international food promotions, competitions, workshops, educational conferences and various other learning experiences. The members of LCA include catering and hotel company directors, restaurateurs, chefs, cooks, culinary educators, apprentices and trainees and can be found in every type of catering activity.
