Every year WWF-SASSI pays a visit to Silwood School of Cookery, South Africa’s oldest cookery school. Silwood graduates can be found in the top kitchens of the world. It is always exciting interacting with young chefs in the making as they engage on issues of ocean conservation and how they can take sustainable seafood practices into their culinary careers. The students are ever ready to learn, question and discuss the state of the world’s fish stocks, sustainable and harmful fishing methods and how they can take these learnings back to their kitchens to implement as ocean champions in their own right.
