"You can't say no to Belgium chocolate."

Telicia Moolman joined the Hartford House team in December 2012 to complete her 6 month work experience as she is currently studying hospitality through Central University of Technology. When asked about how she felt on hearing the news that she was chosen to do her work experience at Hartford House, Telicia responded:

"I was excited when I was chosen for Hartford House, it was my first choice! Once I heard the news I was excited and wanted to start work as soon as possible. I think the anticipation of what was to come made the last few days of university really drag. My biggest source of excitement came from what I was going to learn not only in the restaurant but in the kitchen under Chef Jackie Cameron."

We asked Telicia was differentiated her drive to work in the KZN Midlands from her drive to varsity in Bloemfontein:

"The scenery makes the drive quick, and the excitement of no classrooms! I really enjoy the practical side, so my drives to and from work normally involve thinking about what I will learn today... and what have I learnt today!"

When asked to choose her favourite dishes at Hartford House, Telicia didn't hesitate :

"Midlands Fish and Chips, Oxtail Risotto, Chocolate Fondant (you can't say no to Belgium chocolate)... and the whole breakfast menu!"

Lastly, we asked Telicia what phrase we would most likely hear her say during her working day:

"In my short time in practical's already, I am sure you will hear me say "chuck it" quite a bit..."
