And the winners of the Sunday Times Food Awards 2011 are …
|10/10/2011||Posted by Fabrizia under Events, For tickles and giggles|
And without further ado, this year’s winners are:
- Chef of the Year: Wynand van Rooyen of the Mount Nelson Hotel’s Planet Restaurant, Cape Town (back row, right)
- Chef School Challenge Winners: Megin Meikle and Darren O’ Donovan from HTA Culinary School of Art in Randburg, Johannesburg (front row, left and back row, middle respectively)
- Stalwart of the Kitchen: Delvin Reck from Scotty’s Restaurant and Bar in Plettenberg Bay (back row, right)
Three personal highlights for me were meeting one of my South African idols Nataniël, who was one of the best MC’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching and listening to (he’s freaking hilarious!); meeting some of Cape Town’s most prominent food and wine bloggers such as Relax with Dax, Batonage, Drizzle and Dip, Squashed Tomato and Food and the Fabulous; and the amaaaaaazing chocolate ice cream and chocolate, fudge brownie sundae I devoured at the end of the evening.
