Celebrity chef series aims to raise thousands for charity.
Col’Cacchio pizzeria has launched its celebrity chef series in aid of charity at Nicol Way mall in Bryanston. This year, the restaurant chain had already raised R50 000 for the Children’s Hospital Trust. The series kicked off in May with Jackie Cameron’s Carpe Funghi pizza delight. Pizza sales to date have set a new record for the series – over 10 000 Carpe Funghi pizzas sold.
The Bujumbura from Coco Reinarhz now comes into the spotlight from June. Diners can look forward to tasting a heavenly combination of mozzarella, oven roasted brinjals, fragrant North African flavoured chicken tagine, green olives and preserved lemons, topped with fresh coriander and drizzled with coriander-infused yoghurt. Burundian Chef Reinarhz is the Chef Patron of Sel et Poivre in Sandton, Gauteng. His unique and innovative Afro-fusion culinary style combines classic French cuisine with the most opulent of African flavours. He recently co-authored the internationally acclaimed book, To The Banqueting House: African Cuisine An Epic Journey.

Col’Cacchio pizzeria is donating R5 from every celebrity chef pizza sold to the Children’s Hospital Trust, fundraiser for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and Paediatric Healthcare in the Western Cape.
