On Monday, 19 September 2016, the fourth annual Chefs who Share charity fundraiser for youth development begins at the Maslow Hotel in Johannesburg. This marks the start of a week-long affair headlined by 14 celebrated chefs, who will collaborate with seven leading sommeliers to create gastronomic feasts for ticket holders at venues around the city.
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 prestigious 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 4-course menu for the evening where money is raised for youth development via an auction of contemporary art and exceptional experiences.
