The Table Bay in Cape Town was a proud participant a special Cook-a-Thon, ‘Chefs With Compassion Mandela Day Initiative’ held last Saturday (18 July)
In 2020, the essence of Mandela Day, which is held each year in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 18 July - take action, inspire change, and make every day a Mandela Day – was more important than ever before.
The Table Bay worked with Chefs with Compassion and SA Harvest in rising to the challenge through the collective action of hundreds of chefs to cook 67,000 litres of soup for the most vulnerable communities in Cape Town and throughout South Africa.
The Table Bay’s Operations Team joined Executive Chef, Keshan Ramburan and his kitchen brigade in the hotel on Saturday preparing and cooking Bean Soup from 8.00am to 1.00pm.
“Although our hotel remains closed during these still challenging times, we were thrilled to have our team being part of this wonderful day in recognition of a very special person in Nelson Mandela and a fantastic cause,” said The Table Bay General Manager, Joanne Selby.
“It was all hands on deck with everyone helping create upwards of 1900 litres of this hearty soup,” Ms Selby said.
The Table Bay is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will advise its reopening date when the South African government announces the lifting of restrictions.
The popular waterfront property will introduce new world-class health and safety protocols including required head counts and social distancing rules upon reopening.
