The chefs introduced Ukraine to the South African cuisine, its distinctive features and secrets. In his due turn, Ievgen Klopotenko, a restaurant owner and a famous TV host, became the guide around Ukrainian cuisine for the guests of honor from the RSA.

"100 Years Back in Future" restaurant became the venue for the professional meeting. Each of the chefs had an opportunity to get an invaluable personal experience in the culinary area, get acquainted with the distinctive features of the far and distant cuisine of a different country, demonstrate own skills and emphasize each other’s knowledge over the joint work.

Andile Somdaka, the chef of the Presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki is famous for carefully preserving traditions of the national cuisine and being very cautious about any kind of interpretations and innovations in order not to spoil the time-tested dishes. In 1999 he opened a restaurant of his own, Eziko Caterers. He pays enormous attention to quality, freshness and naturalness of the products, and has his ‘garden of the greens’ right in the yard of the restaurant.

Ievgen Klopotenko is a chef who tries to change nutrition culture in Ukraine, overcome eating stereotypes and show that the culinary world is in fact very diverse so it isn’t worth limiting yourself to few products and commonplace dishes. The cookery expert falls back on Ukrainian roots of a hundred years to present Ukrainian cuisine today without the century-long contamination. Ievgen cooked several traditional dishes in a pretty unusual for us interpretation. The chef introduced his colleagues to the Ukrainian borshch with plump lekvar and the smell of smoke, made a self-sufficient body of a parsnip and a select pâté.
