Indian Michelin-starred chef flies to SA to cook for charity
Marking the start of a week-long affair which will see 14 celebrity chefs collaborating with seven leading sommeliers to create gastronomic feasts for ticket holders, the fourth annual Chefs who Share charity fundraiser for youth development will begin at the Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg on 19 September 2016.
Among the international culinary wizards are the Michelin-starred chef Vineet Bhatia, who is the talent behind LUX* Belle Mare’s famous Indian Cuisine restaurant Amari by Vineet, and executive chef Vincent Rodier who reigns supreme at the resort’s Beach Rouge beach club and restaurant in Mauritius.
Both are flown into South Africa especially for Chefs who Share and will add their individual talents to the greater cause.
Guests at the gala evening on Saturday, 24 September will be wined and dined by the seven teams of chefs and sommeliers. This time, Bathia will be joined by Margot Janse from Le Quartier Francais, Franschhoek, and Rodier will team up with executive chef Christo Pretorius from Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa.
Each team creates its own four-course menu for the evening where money is raised for youth development via an auction of contemporary art and exceptional experiences.
