Cape Town Chefs Visit Singapore for Halal Experience

As part of the Cape Town Tourism Halal Chef Exchange programme in collaboration with CresentRating, two local chefs had the opportunity of travelling to Singapore to hone their Halal cooking skills.

Tamsyn Wells, executive chef, African Pride, 15 on Orange, Autograph Collection and Dion Vengatass, chef de cuisine, Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, participated in the programme and won a cooking competition that saw local chefs putting their Halal cooking skills to the test.

The programme is part of an ongoing campaign to prepare local restaurants for Muslim travellers, a key emerging tourism market.

This local edition of the chef exchange inspired CrescentRating to extend its reach, and they have since launched Halal Chef World, a similar training programme they are targeting at destinations across the globe.
