CAPE LEGENDS INTER HOTEL CHALLENGE

 

The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa was the
elegant home for the first of five events celebrating
the launch of the Cape Legends Inter Hotel Challenge 2016

A five part series - Part One

 

 

The weather was ideal, an exquisite day with a sea that barely rippled, indeed The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa was a stunning venue. The lunch took place in a superb cream marquee that showed off the table arrangements to perfection. Lunch, a collaborative menu, was masterminded by five Executive Chefs of the Cape’s top hotels; Rudi Liebenberg (Belmond Mount Nelson), Grant Cullingworth (The Westin), Shyam Longani (Taj Cape Town), Craig Carmichael (Radisson Blu Le Vendome) and Christo Pretorius (The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa) who was overseas at the time attending the Red Carnation’s annual gala event. In his absence the stunning main course was prepared by their Head Chef, Michael McIntyre.
