A fun concept, which involves simply bidding on your favourite chef combination and be entertained, at a venue of your choice, for up to 10 people! Each lot consists of three top chefs who, if you’re the winning bidder, will prepare an unforgettable event to be hosted at your own personal venue. Each lot function will be accompanied by some superb MCC from Le Lude. 

By no means small fry chefs, the participating chefs include Reuben Riffel (Reubens and R & Co), Oelof Vorster (Le chêne), Archie Maclean (Bistro BonBon), Margot Janse (Director of Isabelo Charity), Oliver Cattermole (Bovine), Darren Badenhorst (Le chêne and Le Coin Français), David Schneider (Chefs Warehouse Maison), Neil Jewell (Jewell’s), Ryan Shell, Duncan Doherty, Adrian Hadlow (Rupert & Rothschild), Chris Erasmus (Foliage), John Norris Rogers (La Petite Colombe), Nicolene Barrow (Orangerie) and Matthew Gordon (French Connection Bistro). 

You will no doubt be the talk of the town and envy of your friends for weeks, but don’t delay as there are only three days left to get your bids in. For more information and to place your bid visit
