Dennis & Hanna Strydom

DSH-Consult is an ideas company born out of a yearning to assist & help people. We like to think outside the box; dream big, think bigger, identify people’s needs, and create viable and profitable solutions to meet them.

Being in the hospitality industry we are confident that the skills we have acquired are transferable; as the one thing you are taught in the kitchen is to find solutions to problems, quickly.

Our passion is to empower people to add value. We love teaching and equipping personnel with the necessary skills to enable them to be better at what they do. We are at our current career trajectory because somebody took a chance on us, that is something we would like to pay forward on our journey.

Currently, we are looking to focus our business on basic kitchen/cooking training for housekeepers and novice cooks at their homes as well as small scale catering.

We would, however, want to develop over time into a small eatery/deli with the following:

  • Sit down/takeaway eatery for breakfast/lunch and possible dinner depending on location.

  • Frozen meals

  • Home-made items i.e. jam, spice blends, granola, etc.

  • Small event catering i.e. kitchen teas, birthday parties

  • Training facility for basic cooking skills

  • Cooking demonstrations

That is the dream:

At this stage, we are building towards that. We are administratively strong and can create general management systems for the daily running of most businesses. We have created and implemented solutions effectively at all of our previous employers.
