Inaugural Limpopo InfoChef a Resounding Success

The very first InfoChef in Limpopo took place on 25 July 2019, hosted by Chef Tommie Hurter and his SA Chefs Limpopo Committee team at Limpopo Chefs Academy Polokwane Campus.

An event created for chefs, hospitality establishments, hospitality high school and tertiary students, industry suppliers, SA Chefs (the professional body) and members of the public to meet, network and be entertained.

Guests were treated to live Demos, industry chats and front row seats to 3 exciting competitions (a first for Limpopo). Exhibitors from the Industry displayed products and presented samples to all who attended.

Chef Sphola from Skeem Saam got the crowds rearing to go with his energy and great prize giveaways. Chef Pieter Malan plated one of his signature dishes live on stage.
