Food is always exciting to talk about but when you have an awesome chef to help find new ways of experiencing food, it makes things even better.
Noxolo Peter is the entrepreneur behind CheesySteaks, a gourmet food brand that makes Philly cheesesteaks. The cheesesteaks concept is of American origin, but her business, CheesySteaks, has taken a unique and different approach when making the cheesesteaks, infusing them with African flavours. How awesome is that?
She started this business because of her incredible talent and love for food, combined with wanting to make a difference. Noxolo realised that she was creative and excited about playing with food and decided to take it seriously. She also dreamed of doing something to contribute to the economy of her country, South Africa.
“I want to be one of the women that challenge the status quo, and not only that, but be able to create employment for other young women and girls as I believe we have great potential as a country to thrive, but we need strong and determined women (and men) to do so.”
Wondering how she achieves this with just cheeseteaks? She infuses flavours and products from Africa and those from other parts of the world with a burst of distinctive flavours, which not only taste great, but also look so beautiful.
Want some advice from her? This is what she has to say; “One thing most entrepreneurs do not understand is that you do not get to where you want to be overnight, it takes time, sweat, and sometimes tears to get to where you want to be.”
