4 of the best Culinary Schools in Gauteng joined to be part of #GreatChefsDoingGreatThings and take the #PinkMenuChallenge by competing against each other to create the healthiest and most decadent pink menu for Crowne Plaza Johannesburg – The Rosebank to feature on #WorldCancerDay2020, February 4th.
The competing schools were:
HTA School of Culinary Art
Capsicum Culinary Studio
Prue Leith Chefs Academy
Each school will still host their own #PinkMenuChefsTable on World Cancer Day (4 February), but the winner of this competition will host it at Crowne Plaza Johannesburg – The Rosebank.
Have a look at our menu for the evening:
Each attendee rated their favourite starter, main and dessert; and our team was honoured by being chosen as the favourites of the attendees as well as overall winners.
We loved being part of The Pink Table Project – an amazing initiative supporting such a great cause, PinkDrive. Congratulations to Ryan Matheson and his team on a fantastic event.
It was an honour to compete with Prue Leith Chefs Academy, Capsicum Culinary Studio and Guvon Academy – we salute you.
Thank you to all who supported us on the evening and we look forward to presenting our menu again at Crowne Plaza Rosebank Johannesburg in February.
