Lo­cal chefs bring home sil­ver medals for South Africa

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOOD MOVIES -

The Twelve Apos­tles Ho­tel and Spa spokesper­son PART of the in­ter­na­tional Red Car­nat i on Ho­tel Col­lec­tion, The Twelve Apos­tles Ho­tel and Spa’s ex­ec­u­tive chef and team cap­tain for the Culi­nary Team SA, Hen­rico Grobbe­laar has proudly brought home three sil­ver medals for South Africa from the Culi­nary World Cup at the 11th Sa­lon In­ter­na­tional de la Gas­tronomie (In­ter­na­tional Gas­tron­omy Show) in Lux­em­bourg. One was achieved in the cold ta­ble pre­sen­ta­tion and one for the hot kitchen cat­e­gory, with an­other sil­ver medal in the in­di­vid­ual cat­e­gory for the pas­try sec­tion by the Ho­tel’s pas­try chef, Peter Gy­or­gy­ic­sek.

The five-star Twelve Apos­tles Ho­tel and Spa was the only prop­erty in South Africa, to have two of its chefs com­pete on the Olympic team. As a re­sult of the in­tense train­ing un­der­taken to get to this level, this bodes well for the ho­tel as the chefs are availed to the lat­est culi­nary and nu­tri­tional trends on the in­ter­na­tional cui­sine cir­cuit. Next year will see these tech­niques and trends in­cor­po­rated into all the sig­na­ture menus at The Twelve Apos­tles restau­rants, such as the Azure, Café Grill, the ban­quet­ing depart­ment and even the room ser­vice menu – all be in­ter­na­tional cui­sine show­cases.

Com­pe­ti­tion was high, with 25 na­tional, 10 na­tional mil­i­tary, 10 na­tional ju­nior and 10 col­lec­tive cater­ing teams, as well as in­di­vid­ual chefs and con­fec­tion­ers who com­peted in this out­stand­ing culi­nary event.

Com­ments Grobbel a a r : “ I a m ex­tremely thank­ful to the own­ers and man­age­ment of the Red Car­na­tion Ho­tel Col­lec­tion for af­ford­ing us this op­por­tu­nity to take part and bring home these sil­ver medals to South Africa. Only with great team work and con­tin­ual sup­port has this been pos­si­ble, and we hope to show our ap­pre­ci­a­tion by tak­ing the culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence at The Twelve Apos­tles Ho­tel and Spa to even greater heights.”
