Sponsoring the Col’Cacchio fundraiser for the Red Cross Childrens Hospital

Vrede en Lust is the proud wine sponsor of the the very innovative Col’Cacchio Pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series. Six top chefs have been selected to flex their culinary muscles in the Col’Cacchio Pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series; a gourmet charity project that aims to raise funds for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

Under the guidance of Col’Cacchio Pizzeria’s co-owner Kinga Baranowska, chefs Reuben Riffel, Mike Basset, Citrum Khumalo, Rudi Liebenberg, Margot Janse and Philippe Wagenfuhrer, will rise to a challenge beyond their beliefs in a pizza adventure to ‘create a culinary masterpiece.’

The chefs have worked with Susan to match a Vrede en Lust wine with every gourmet pizza. The wines will be on offer per glass or by the bottle. This challenge will showcase the emergence of a true master in something as ‘simple’ as rolling out dough and scattering some ingredients.

“We foresee this series becoming an annual event, bringing together people from various sectors of the hospitality industry,” said Kinga, “in the hope that this initiative will raise adequate exposure and funds for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.”

For 6 months, diners will have a taste of what each celebrity chef has brought to the table. Every month will showcase a different chef’s masterpiece on promotion. With every special gourmet celebrity pizza sold, R5.00 will be donated to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, and 100% of these funds will go towards the purchase of specialised surgical equipment for the new Operating Theatre Complex currently under construction at the Hospital.

Great pizza’s – a great cause – and great value! Please support this unique effort and have a blast doing so. For details re your closest Col’Cacchio Pizzeria, please visit their website.
