Namibian Institute of Culinary Education (nice)

The Namibian Institute of Culinary Education (nice) is a chef finishing and training school linked to a commercial restaurant in the heart of Windhoek, which has established itself as a popular destination of culinary excellence.

The purpose of nice is to produce excellent and professional chefs for the high end of the Namibian tourism market. Students are trained in food preparation and food and beverage management. In order to give trainees a real life exposure to their profession, the up-market restaurant is the driving force behind the training facility.

The restaurant is also envisaged to become the main funding body of the training facility, hence making the whole project self-sustainable in the medium to long term.

Currently nice and the Wolwedans Collection work together on a joint training program, exposing trainees to both lodge and city based hospitality and restaurant operations. The institutions have a good balance of theoretical and practical exposure to ensure that all graduates are ‘employment ready’ at the end of the program of their choice.
