The Fig Tree Restaurant came to life on Saturday night with its first Celebrity Chef Challenge, proudly sponsored by KWV. Simbithi’s own Executive Chef Daryn Bowers battled ex-Hartford House Chef Constantijn Hahndiek in an epic three-course duel.
Guests were treated to a gastronomic adventure; blindly tasting an amuse bouche, main and dessert. Though the two Chefs were neck-and-neck until the end, Chef Constantijn emerged victorious. Sublime entertainment by Danny Fisher rounded out an excellent evening.
