Nederburg is sponsoring the 2019 Rising Star Award that will go to South Africa’s most exciting new restaurant talent, to be announced in November. The coveted title forms part of the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards, taking place at Cape Town’s Grand West on 17 November.
Established in 2014, the Eat Out Nederburg Rising Star honour annually goes to the most promising newcomer to South Africa’s restaurant scene, identified by Eat Out’s judging panel, led by chief judge Margot Janse. Once again this year there is intense speculation about who will win, given the spate of newly established city and country eateries across the country.
“For the first time, this year Eat Out has released a shortlist of three candidate chefs who are in the running for the 2019 Eat Out Nederburg Rising Star Award,” says Marguerite Beukes, Nederburg’s brand manager. “This only adds to the excitement as the tension mounts in the lead-up to the announcement of South Africa’s top 10 restaurants, as well as a spate of other awards including the Rising Star Award, on 17 November.”
