Cape Town – Darren Badenhorst, Callan Austin and Shawn Godfrey will join forces with an exclusive fine dining pop-up event on 27-29 April at Makers Landing – V&A Waterfront. The unique collaboration – named The Chefs’ Collective – provides a maximum of twenty guests per evening access to the exclusive experience. What makes it so unique is that Shawn, the winner of MasterChef South Africa 2022, will serve some of his dishes seen on the show, but will also be available for the guests to ask their questions to incorporate unique stories from the MasterChef kitchen.
“Makers Landing is the home of MasterChef – it’s where the show was recorded, and where the finale was broadcast on a big screen. There is therefore no better place for me to host my first event since the show, in which I will share some highlights from my MasterChef journey, give an insight into the behind the scenes of the filming as well as of course the arduous journey to the final.” – Shawn Godfrey
