If you haven’t yet tried this year’s Col’Cacchio Celebrity Chef Series delectable pizzas, do your tastebuds a favour and go try it out! Running until April 2017, these limited edition gourmet pizzas created by three talented South African chefs aren’t made just for their mouthwatering flavour – they’re for a good cause too.
R5 from every pizza sold goes to the Children’s Hospital Trust, the fundraising initiative for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, which does amazing work in treating so many of our country’s children in need of pediatric care. 100% of the funds raised for the trust goes directly towards improving child healthcare and facilities.
Since the first Celebrity Chef Series launched in 2007, this incredible campaign has raised over R1,8million!
This year features a stellar celebrity chef cast, with the likes of chef, presenter and cookbook author Zola Nene, private chef Neil Anthony and food blogger/entertainer Claire Allen. They were tasked with creating a signature pizza each and the results are undeniably outstanding:
