“Making sure our programme addresses the latest challenges” “There’s no doubt that renewable energy as well as smart technology are changing the way power and water utilities operate and deal with their customers. The industry is constantly challenged and presented with new opportunities and it is therefore vital for power and water professionals to share knowledge and collaborate on a regional basis.” This is according to Evan Schiff, who heads up the 16th African Utility Week and Clean Power Africa conference and trade exhibition that returns to Cape Town from 17-19 May 2016 – gathering some 6000 engineers, stakeholders and solution providers from around the globe. The event will feature 250 exhibitors, 250 speakers, a six stream strategic conference, free-to-attend technical conference on the expo floor, three high-profile keynote sessions, technical site visits and the coveted industry awards gala dinner. Evan adds: “We are very proud of our African Utility Week Advisory Board which comprises senior decision makers from utilities, large power users, IPPs, consultants and contractors from across the continent. They take a very active role in making sure our programme addresses the latest challenges, developments and opportunities in the power and water sectors: ranging from generation, T&D, metering, clean energy, finance, reliability, water supply or energy efficiency. We will once again showcase many success stories in clean energy; look at bankable power projects and energy storage will be discussed as a possible game changer for energy independence. We also have a strong focus on water for 2016, including the water-energy nexus, water efficiency and wastewater management.” Industry Awards Dr Lawrence Musaba, Co-ordination Centre Manager, Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) in Zimbabwe is already confirmed as a high-level keynote speaker at this leading annual industry meeting. He says current challenges facing the energy sector include “low . . .
In December 2015, Col’Cacchio Holdings, the holding company of Col’Cacchio pizzeria, will be launching a new brand - First Base. This “fast casual” restaurant will be located in the Paddocks Shopping Centre in Milnerton, Cape Town, and will give customers the opportunity to craft their very own tailor-made pizzas and salads, using the freshest and finest ingredients on offer. Co-founded by Directors Michael Terespolsky, Kinga Baranowska and Greg Mommsen, the first Col’Cacchio pizzeria opened its doors in 1992 serving Italian-inspired food with an innovative flair. Renowned for their diverse menu of gourmet pizzas, freshly prepared salads and pastas, and a full service sit-down dining experience, Col’Cacchio pizzeria is now a nationwide chain with over 32 stores. Between quick service restaurants (fast food) and full service restaurants lies the rapidly growing “fast casual” restaurant sector. First Base will offer a casual dining experience at a fast food pace, while providing customers with made to order, freshly-prepared, high-quality food, traditionally absent from quick service restaurants. At the very centre of the “fast casual” restaurant culture is the fact that customers order what they want rather than what the restaurant dictates. By building your own pizza or salad you get exactly what you want and only pay for what you decide. Pizzas and salads will be priced according to the amount of toppings you choose regardless of what they are, with the exception of a few premium toppings that will be costed separately. First Base will also have five signature pizzas and three signature salads for those customers who prefer to order off a menu or who don’t trust their own inventions. To end off the experience, customers can enjoy a soft serve ice-cream with a selection of unique homemade toppings to choose from. The second major influence that brought about the “fast casual” trend or what is now becoming known as the “fine-casual” trend is that . . .
Seven South African chefs were announced as ‘Trailblazers’ in the 2015 WWF-SASSI Trailblazer Awards, held at The Table Bay Hotel, on Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront on Monday, 30th November 2015. The seven awarded chefs are: Chef Peter Pankhurst - Savoy Cabbage Restaurant Chef Greg Coleman - East Head Café, Knysna Chef Michelle Theron - Pierneef à La Motte Chef Jocelyn Myers-Adams – Table Bay Hotel Chef Hylton Espey - Equus at Cavalli Wine Estate Chef Sias Tabambi - Harbour House Restaurant Chef Jonathan Japha - Black Sheep Restaurant Building on the phenomenal success of SASSI’s "Green, Orange, Red” guide amongst the South African public, the SASSI Trailblazer Awards recognise and celebrate chefs who are actively championing sustainable seafood practices in their restaurants. Pavs Pillay, SASSI Programme Manager at WWF-SA, commented, “Our partnerships with chefs are inspired by a love of seafood and a shared commitment to help restore our overexploited seafood species. The chefs we are recognising have gone the extra mile in advocating the sustainability message.” A previously awarded Trailblazer, and now Mentor, Chef Brad Ball of Peddlars & Co. in Constantia, Cape Town, added; “Chefs serve as the gatekeepers for the food and hospitality industry and therefore play a critical role in leading market forces and influencing popular taste. The reality is that chefs who support and promote ocean-friendly seafood can help ensure that there are fish to catch and enjoy tomorrow. My role is to do this, and to make up-and-coming chefs aware of what’s at stake.” Clare Mack, of Spill Communications, and the awards organiser, said, “It’s gratifying to see, in the third year of these awards, that many restaurants are adopting sustainable practices in seafood, without any intervention or prompting. Sustainability is now mainstream, it has really caught on.” The criteria on which the restaurants and chefs were assessed were: The . . .
