It was all glitter and glamour at the Cape Legends & Artisan Spirits Inter Hotel Challenge. The ‘Hotel Oscars’ took place at the Cape’s historic icon, Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel on Friday 29th July.

 

 

The fourth annual Cape Legends Inter Hotel Challenge, sponsored by Cape Legends fine wines and choice Distell artisan spirits, now known as the Cape Legends & Artisan Spirits Inter Hotel Challenge, culminated in a huge and scintillating celebration at the Belmond Mount Nelson. The dinner was hosted by Rudi Liebenberg where his brigade prepared the fine dinner introducing choice dishes from the candidates’ menus. Each table was stunningly beautiful in ‘Platinum & Pearls’, creatively designed by individual hotels. Our theme highlighted the rich resources that we are fortunate to have, both natural and particularly in the people of South Africa.
