About Us

Fine Dining Culinary Academy is a home-grown passion which started in 2013 as Mano’s kitchen offering catering services mainly for events. It then evolved into Fine Dining Culinary Academy in 2019 answering the call to excellence in food. FDCA not only does culinary trainings but makes sure all its staff and candidates have a full understanding of food etiquette and social etiquette which equips the chefs to not only produce amazing meals but offer an outstanding service to their clients.
Fine Dining Chefs Academy is an exquisite licensed culinary school based in the bustling city of Harare in Zimbabwe.
FDCA is a fully registered company which is a sole proprietorship owned by Tracy Maoneke. Staff working with food all have food handlers certificates. We work in compliance with all applicable local health department rules and regulation relating to food preparation and food service.
The school offers different cooking courses to interested students and is affiliated to different exam boards. It also offers an in-house certificate on completion of short or hobby courses. We seek to produce chefs that will be highly successful in their endeavours.
To remain relevant, we are constantly updating the knowledge of our staff with current goings on in the food industry as most of them are members of the Zimbabwe Chefs Association which is a great advantage to the institution. Fine Dining Chefs Academy has subsidiary companies which are Fine Dining Chefs Academy Catering Company and also The Fine Dining Kitchen store.


Our vision is to become a leader in the provision of sound cooking lessons to our students. We operate our cooking school business to make a difference in the lives of our students as well as establish a profitable business that is known across Southern Africa.
