Earlier in September, Margot Janse took part in charity dinner Chefs Who Share. 14 acclaimed South African chefs – paired in duos –presented seven especially designed menus for the night. Margot was paired with David Higgs from Saxon Hotel and Spa.
“It was an amazing night,” said Margot. “14 chefs all there for the same reason. It was well organised and there was an amazing vibe in the room.
“David Higgs and I have been very good friends for a long time, and it was fabulous working on this function together! We had loads of fun putting the menu together and then finalising all the preparations with 1000km between us.”
Chefs who Share raised a total of R1 195 000 from ticket sales and an art auction which saw ten art pieces, donated by top South African artists, auctioned off by Cape Town businessman Iain Banner on the night. All proceeds raised by this prestigious event will go to MAD CHARITY (Make a Difference) and Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.
Veggie Boxes piled high with fresh ingredients donated by Woolworths destined for soup kitchens to feed underprivileged children, were also sold on the evening at R1000 per box. Chefs who Share hope to make this an ongoing initiative.
