Meet Wendy Hadebe, the Culinary Maestro Behind Your Delicious Davinci Moments! From Durban kitchens to international adventures, Wendy Hadebe brings a decade of culinary expertise and a heart full of passion to her new role as Davinci Hotel & Suites' Executive Sous Chef.

Born and raised in Durban, Wendy's journey began with a dream of recipe and product development. However, a twist of fate landed her in a hotel kitchen, and she instantly fell in love with the fast-paced environment and the joy of creating dishes that delighted guests.19b114a8-62be-4b65-b2a0-078c7ef30077.JPG

  • Daughterly Delights: Her daughter is her sunshine, always bringing a smile to her face.
  • Globe Trotter: With 14 countries under her belt and more to come, her wanderlust is insatiable.
  • "Don't Knock It Till You've Tried It" is her motto, encouraging culinary exploration and open-mindedness.
  • "I get to be myself in the kitchen, no filter" perfectly captures her passion for creating memorable experiences through her craft.
