Mason Farming presents harvest table at Clash of the Chefs
CLASH OF THE CHEFS 2019
The 3rd annual CLASH OF THE CHEFS was hosted on Sunday 01 September 2019 at Marlenique Estate, Simondium, Franschhoek/ Paarl and Mason Farming was invited for the 2nd consecutive year to present a harvest table at this prestigious event.
The event raises funds for diﬀerent causes and the chosen charity this year was SAFE HANDS Animal Rescue Franschhoek. This was done by auctioning donated prizes and sponsorships.
The chefs also donated their time and skills to prepare food for 200 to 250 guests.
It was an exciting, interactive fundraiser, challenging 4 teams of 2 chefs each to compete for the Champion Chef Team title. The teams were all given a mystery box with ingredients in it (stocked by the guest judge, Matt Manning from Chef’s Studio in Cape Town) and 60 minutes in which to prepare the dish. The other 2 guest judges were MasterChef Australia 2017 runner-up Ben Ungermann and Brett Garner from Franschhoek. The chefs prepared the food in the Chef’s CookOﬀ Zone in the centre of the venue, with a live feed camera projecting the footage to the televisions which were strategically stationed all over the venue. The guests were given the opportunity to come up close and personal with the chefs, who were hurriedly trying to complete their dishes on time. I don’t know who was more excited: the guests or the chefs.
All in all, a great time had by everyone.
