The One&Only at the V&A Waterfront Hotel hosts this wonderful competition where a number of hospitality schools' students learn and compete against each other. Major prizes are sponsored by Kitchen Aid, Rio Largo, Khoisan Salt, Struik and many others. The competition is run by Annette Kesler and Chania Morritt-Smith of Showcook.com. Various wineries also participated more actively this year and Villiera, Fleur du Cap, Durbanville Hills, Oldenburg, Anthonij Rupert & Stellar Oganics took time to take the wine steward candidates out to their farms to immerse them more in wine. The winning Wine Steward is from The Hurst Campus at Backsberg - viz Nicole van Zyl. The winning young chefs are from Silwood Kitchen - Hayley New and Charné Sampson. Congrats to all!
