Child Welfare Teaon June 17, 2011
Child Welfare is an extremely worthy cause in anyone’s book, which is why we were recently involved in a Child Welfare Tea that was held in Vanderbijlpark. Saturday 21 May saw this annual event stealing the limelight on the Gauteng social calendar, as it does every year; attended by over 200 ladies from the province.
Who Was There?
The Child Welfare Tea was a smashing success with Chef Andrew Robertson (our Executive Chef from The Cabanas) and Chef Kame Chen (our Sun International Specialty Sushi Chef) as the main attractions on centre stage. Natasha Sutherland was the guest speaker in what proved to be an incredibly exciting event for the ladies present.
What Did The Day Entail?
Our talented chefs entertained the crowds of ladies by sharing their skills in Sushi Making and basic, healthy yet delicious tasting cooking. The chefs invited ladies from the audience to join them on stage as they divulged their trade secrets; though not all of them! Once the dishes had been prepared, the best part was getting to taste them all. Exclamations of amazement were expressed as what was extremely healthy food actually tasted incredibly delicious.
The day reached its climax when Chef Andrew offered up his chef’s skills for auction. The winner would have Chef Andrew cook a 3 course meal for them and 9 guests. The bids came to rest at R3 000 after a thrilling bout of bidding.
For years, Chef Andrew has been involved in fundraising especially where the SA Child Welfare Association is concerned. He regularly does live cooking shows, endorsing food products and cooking equipment. He is currently involved with Taaibos School Feed; a Child Project in Sasolburg that bakes bread at the school to sell to the needy community. 20 children are also fed on a daily basis with this project; a worthy initiative indeed.
