I know a lot of people who swear by Col'Cacchio pizza. They claim it is the best in Cape Town. Debatable, but with the new celebrity chef challenge they have definitely got a foot-up in the quest for top pizza honours.
Basically how it works is Col'Cacchio have teamed up with some of the country's top chefs to create gourmet pizzas for the months April through to September. A chef will be in charge of designing a pizza for a specific month and every time the pizza gets ordered R5 will be donated to The Red Cross Children's Hospital.
May belongs to Mike Bassett, owner and head chef of Myoga, Ginja and Shoga. His masterpiece uses Indian butter chicken as the main ingredient as well as two types of mozzarella (cow's milk and buffalo milk), yoghurt, coriander and onions. Doesn't sound too kak. Another famous name involved is Reuben Riffel, who will be in charge of September's pizza. Me? I'll be heading there in August to check out Margot Janse's interpretation of a pizza. The food at Le Quartier Francais has its own style and thought-process and I can't wait to see it in the form of a simple pizza.
