2015 CELEBRITY CHEF SERIES A BIG HIT

The highly anticipated Col’Cacchio pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series ran from September until the end of November 2015. Three top South African sport stars teamed up with three of SA’s hottest young chefs to create their take on a signature pizza. Pizza lovers visited our stores nationally to sample their delectable signature creations and a remarkable R260 000 was raised for the Children’s Hospital Trust.

The mouth-watering 2015 line up of celebrity pizzas were created by Butch James and Kamini Pather, JP Duminy and Wynand van Rooyen and Jabu Mahlangu and Ivor Jones. A total of 11 047 pizzas were sold throughout the campaign, with Jabu Mahlangu and Ivor Jones’ ‘The Aegean’ pizza proving to be the most popular. Funds raised will be utilised to upgrade and expand the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

“We are delighted that Col’Cacchio pizzeria once again selected the Children’s Hospital Trust as the beneficiary for this worthy campaign. They have a big heart for the Hospital, and their generous support has helped raise funds for numerous Trust priority projects over the years, with this donation going towards building a much needed bigger and better ICU at the Hospital.” says Louise Driver, CEO of the Children’s Hospital Trust.

Col’Cacchio pizzeria Director, Kinga Baranowska, commented, “The Celebrity Chef Series is about contributing to a worthy cause and this would not be possible without the support of the public, our celebrity chefs, sportsmen and sponsors involved. We thank you for the role you’ve played in helping us raise this donation”.

experience the harvest firsthand AT Durbanville Hills Wines

The present grape harvest is not only the earliest but also the most intense in decades as the fierce heat of the past month had hastened the ripening of all the cultivars. Truckloads of grapes are arriving at the cellars almost simultaneously and winemaking teams are working round the clock to cope with the avalanche. If you want to watch this frenetic activity from a safe distance in an atmosphere heavy with the sweet smell of fermenting juice you can visit Durbanville Hills Winery barely 20 minutes from the centre of the city.

You can join any one of four weekly visits to the cellar which take place in the early evening and always on a Thursday. The first is on 18 February while the fourth and last takes place on 17 March. The visit is much more than a guided tour to where the action is, for it is followed by a tutored tasting of the six wines in the cellar’s premier Rhinofields range as well as a two course supper paired with more of its top wines.

The tours start at 18:00 and cost R295 per person. You have to book on the Monday preceding the Wednesday on which you would like to join the tour. To do so, you should contact Simone Brown on 021 558 1300 or send an email to sibrown@durbanvillehills.co.za. She can also provide you with any additional information you require.
