The public can now be transported to another country without even leaving their city with the latest offering from Col’Cacchio Pizzeria. Being the first to follow international trends right here in South Africa, Col’Cacchio added an Indian versus Cape Malay option to their menu with the influence of Indian tastemaker Naqiyah Mayat and Cape Malay Queen, Fatima Sydow.
“It’s about leading the way and being innovative in international flavour trends, while still celebrating our local heritage,” said Kinga Baranowska, co-founder of Col’Cacchio Pizzeria.
The two celebrity chefs are equally excited about the challenge of combining the flavours of their heritage with pizza.
“I am honoured to partner with Col’Cacchio Pizzeria in taking South Africans on a flavour journey to my ancestral heritage with the taste of sweet and sour, slow-cooked meat and bay leaves which all result in a true Cape Malay flavour explosion,” Fatima Sydow, Cape Malay cooking queen and cookbook author, said.
A big part of the initiative is that each celebrity chef selected an organisation to give back to and make a difference. With every Denning pizza from Sydow sold, R5 will be donated to CANSA for reasons very close to her own heart. Sydow is currently battling cancer and wants to make this a very powerful partnership.
For Naqiyah Mayat, cookbook author, the Travel the World campaign is the perfect opportunity to showcase Indian cuisine with a twist.
“I love marrying concepts and with the Keema pizza I brought together Indian flavours and spices – with a Turkish influence. It presents lamb mince with cucumber raita and lots and lots of coriander,” Mayat said.
With every Keema pizza from Mayat sold, R5 will be donated to Gift of the Givers in support of humanitarian aid to disaster areas.
Col’Cacchio restaurants are ready to take your tastebuds on a Cape Malay and Indian flavour journey with this all-new Travel the World campaign.
With these new offerings, each of which is offered for a limited time only, customers will also be able to vote for their favourite pizza on the Col’Cacchio website (www.colcacchio.co.za) to stand a chance to win free pizza for a year! Keep an eye on Col’Cacchio’s Facebook page, the next flavour journey will be boarding soon.
