The chefs will be preparing the food in the Chefs’ Kitchen, which will be shared via a Live Feed Camera to the guests throughout the restaurant, so guests can see what is happening in the kitchen.

And our hosts, Chef Chris Erasmus and Mark Dendy-Young, will keep us abreast of what is happening, share some humorous anecdotes of each chef - and keep us entertained.

Chef Chris Erasmus will also do a Demonstration on Foraging and will be joined by our Mystery Guest Chef.

Guests will Enjoy:

A delicious Leopard’s Leap Rotisserie - Family Style Luncheon.
Sample the dishes the chefs prepare during the chefs' challenge. The 4 Chefs’ Team will prepare 50 Tasters each for the guests.

Enjoy a FUN, relaxed fundraiser to help us raise much needed funds for Franschhoek SPCA.
