The gourmet masterpieces will be featured on all Col’Cacchio pizzeria menus during the months of September, October and November:
- 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 will be featured in October,
- November will showcase Jabu Mahlangu (Former Bafana Bafana, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder) and Ivor Jones’ (head chef of The Test Kitchen) pizza creation.
“We are very excited for this year’s Celeb Chef Series. Having the South African sportsmen collaborate with the chefs will bring a completely new element to the series. We are thrilled to again be supporting the Children’s Hospital Trust; it is a worthwhile cause we are very happy to endorse and are confident that we will better the amount raised last year. ” Col’Cacchio pizzeria Director, Kinga Baranowska, commented.

Butch James, former 2007 Springbok Rugby World Cup winner added “I am really excited to be part of this year’s series. With the build up to the Rugby World Cup, pizza is the perfect choice when watching rugby with mates.”
