So Chef! 2017 kicks off at Ivory Park Secondary School
On Monday 9 October 2017, Ambassador of France to South Africa H.E. Mr. Christophe Farnaud visited Ivory Park Secondary School in Tembisa as part of So Chef! 2017.
Grade 10 pupils from the school took part in a workshop presented by ambassador of French cuisine in South Africa, Chef Wandile Mabaso.
The pupils prepared crispy summer chicken with bulgar wheat, baby vegetables and salsa verde, with the help of the visiting chef.
Ambassador Farnaud was joined by Mrs. Neo Rakwena, Director of the South Africa National Nutrition Week programme at the Department of Basic Education and Mrs. Marion Claudel, Deputy Director of the French Institute of South Africa and her team.
