'Proudly Paying Tribute to Great Chefs and Great Chefs to Come'


'Food is a Universal Language'

Traveling Chef was founded in 2020 by well-travelled and experienced Chef Rutendo Marovatsanga who is only 27 years old and Goodmore Madombi who has over 20 years in the hospitality industry and both are extremely passionate about food and innovation. We are extremely passionate about food, cook from the heart and customer service is our number one priority.

We feel extremely fortunate to have a company and absolutely love doing what we do, creating opportunities for chefs to individually showcase their skills by preparing fantastic food for special events and creating amazing unforgettable memories. And finally giving the chefs the recognition and credit, they deserve as they give personalised service.


'The Secret Ingredient is Love'

Our innovative concept called Traveling Chef is designed to bring personal service by our chefs into your homes . Our concept is very simple and our aim is to have a chef cook for our clients in the comfort of their your homes or chosen venues especially on special occasions or just to treat their family and friends to a world class experience.

First and foremost, Ruth is hardworking, skilled and reliable. She was a key kitchen staff member for us who consistently delivered high quality on the line. Ruth was consistently on time, prepped and ready to work and was eager to assist in any way to make the kitchen function most effectively. I enjoyed working with Ruth and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again in the future. I wish her continued success.

Rutendo Marovatsanga was employed as a Front of House restaurant Manager. Ruth is highly skilled in working on Pilot POS, Microsoft office suite and Dineplan. She is well spoken, educated and takes initiative when a pressing moment arises. Furthermore, she is reliable and dependable. She has an accommodating demeanor dealing with clients, I would most certainly have her on my team again should the opportunity arise.

Village Unhu is situated in Harare and operates as a gallery for exhibitions for contemporary art and artists. Ruth worked hand in hand with myself creating meaningful and programs, improving in areas lacking. She was a key asset during the residency programs that saw 6 artists visit, stay and work at the studios. Ruth was instrumental in the renovation of the new veranda bar and restaurant. We highly comment and support Ruth.
