Over the past two months (Sep and Oct) we’ve found ourselves at our local Col’Cacchio a few times (it helps that there’s an awesome kids play area always filled with friends – old and new – to keep our kids happy!)
While we’ve been there I’ve order both the monthly specials in their Col’Cacchio pizzeria Celebrity Chef Series for the past two months. The idea behind the series is that three top South African sport stars have teamed up with three of SA’s hottest young chefs to present their take on a signature pizza – a combo of their favourite pizza toppings and flavours.
September saw Butch James (former 2007 Springbok Rugby World Cup winner) and Kamini Pather’s (MasterChef SA, Season 2 Winner) pizza creation featured in all Col’Cacchio pizzeria stores.
JP Duminy (Proteas cricketer) and Wynand van Rooyen’s (The Flying Boar co-founder and chef) pizza was featured in October.
And now in November, Jabu Mahlangu (Former Bafana Bafana, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder) and Ivor Jones’ (head chef of The Test Kitchen) pizza creation will be on offer.
The Aegean pizza has a hummus base with mozzarella, spinach, feta, miso cured lamb, Peppadew® Piquanté Peppers, tahini mayo , phyllo flakes which is paired perfectly with Place in the Sun Shiraz. (R125) I’ll definitely be having to make a return visit to take the latest creation based on how delicious the other options were!
The other great thing about the Col’Cacchio pizzeria Chef Series is that they will be donating R5 from every Celebrity Chef Pizza sold to the Children’s Hospital Trust.
We’ll definitely be taking another turn past our favourite local pizzeria shortly to sample this latest in the series!
