There is no doubt that our kitchen team is very talented, and this woman is no exception. Please meet Dumisile, or better known as Mama Dums. Mama Dums has been a part of the team for the last 2 years. As you have figured out by name, she has taken the role of the kitchen’s mother figure. From prepping ingredients to cooking your favourite dish at Kaylee’s, to helping out members of the team who need some help, there isn’t anything Mama Dums isn’t involved in. We are so excited to finally share a little bit about her.
Like most of our kitchen team, Mama Dums had very little exposure to veganism let alone vegan cooking before she started at Kaylee’s. Her skill set has steadily developed and her confidence in Kaylee’s kitchen has grown. It comes at no surprise that Mama Dums says her best decision was becoming a chef! It has provided her the platform to grow a develop in so many ways.
If you haven’t noticed by now, we love to ask our team what their favourite meal at Kaylee’s is. Mama Dums decided to mix things up a little. She went for one of our hearty meals, the Red Pimento & Blush Tomato Pasta. This dish has been on our menu since our first menu change and has solidified its position as a firm favourite amongst our staff and our customers. Red pepper, garlic and blush tomato pasta sauce served with linguini, fresh basil and toasted pine nuts. What is not to love!
We asked Mama Dums some fun questions about himself, read more here:
Do you have a nickname? Didiza
If you could describe yourself in one word, what would that word be? Ambitious
What one song will you always know every word to? Nkosi Ngibhekisa Kuwe – Rebecca Malope
Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what is it? Yes – styling hair
We are so proud to have such an incredible team made up of people like Mama Dums. Make sure to show them all some love when grabbing your next meal or takeaway at Kaylee’s. They love knowing that you enjoy their food and hard work.
