While growing up in Eldorado Park, Mlambo spent most of his time in the kitchen with his grandmother.

This is where he developed his passion for cooking.

In April of 2019, Mlambo had the honour of cooking for former US President Barack Obama at the National Museum of African American History in Washington DC.

In his 13-episode cooking show, “Inside Job” we will follow the boisterous chef on his journey to create gourmet food with South African flair and a taste for Africa.

Each themed episode showcases his love for local ingredients and fine dining culture, while dancing through his exceptional gourmet recipes.
