Meeting the 2017 Cape Legends Inter hotel candidates at the Lord Charles launch

The 2017 Cape Legends + Artisan Spirits Inter Hotel Challenge kicked off to a good start on Saturday 25th March, at one of the Cape Town launches where the Cape Legends + Distell brands are matched to the participating hotels. We were introduced to the Wine Steward and Chef candidates from each hotel and of course treated to the most delicious food - as each hotel has an opportunity to showcase their wares at each course. I was struck by the keenness of the candidates and I am sure it will be a tough competition this year!  Thanks as always to Annette Kesler and Chania Morritt-Smith from Showcook who arrange this very necessary uplifting and educational program and competition.
