The seven finalists in the inaugural `Chefs who share - Young Chef Award’ have been announced after their innovative canapé creations earned them a spot in the star-studded kitchen of the black-tie charity gala ‘Chefs who share – the ART of giving’, to take place in the Cape Town City Hall on Thursday 10 September 2015.

The award is an inspiring new initiative that sets out to showcase and nurture South Africa’s young culinary talent, with the seven finalists having this once in a lifetime opportunity to join their idols on the night and gain exposure to a high-profile audience - with one of them also in line to earn a dream trip to Europe.
