Carey-Ann grew up in Johannesburg and moved with her family to Kranshoek. After she graduated from Wittedrift High in 2015 she was accepted to study Culinary Arts at the very prestigious school of Francois Ferreira Culinary Academy in George. The course was 18 months and she graduated in 2017, however, still wanted to pursue a further degree in Management. Cooking is her life and it is evident as she was one of the top candidates in her class. In 2018 she graduated from the Culinary Academy as one of the top students in her year. Well done Carey-Ann!
