Chef Benny Masekwameng judges culinary event at Silverstar

Visitors to Silverstar on the West Rand of Johannesburg were treated to a spectacular surprise on Tuesday 10 February, as Chef Benny Masekwameng, Tsogo Sun Celebrity Chef and Masterchef SA judge, made an appearance at Vigour & Verve to informally judge an intimate culinary event between three of Silverstar’s Head Chefs.

The event showcased the cooking talents of Frank de Mets, Head Chef at Publicity Bar & Grill, Kerwin Buckley, Sous Chef at Vigour & Verve as well as Elliot Maphumulo, Banqueting and Gaming Chef at Silverstar, by challenging them to create a unique and mouth-watering pizza.

To make the event interactive and educational, three media volunteers were given the opportunity to assist each of the Chefs as they battled it out in the heated kitchen. Visitors who were present at Vigour & Verve on the day were also able to taste each of the pizzas and assist Chef Benny in the judging process.

The winning pizza, which was named Featherbrooke News, will be featured on the Vigour & Verve menu from 14 – 28 February 2015.
