Michelin trained Chef Wandile Mabaso is highly regarded as one of the most innovative chefs in South Africa and will no doubt take this fine dining event to new heights. Says Wandile “Diner En Blanc gives a wide scale access to French food cooked at the highest level, rather than the elite few that can afford it.”

The preferred sparkling mineral waters around the world, S Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, will also join the party.
The Gautrain will provide transportation from Midrand, Sandton, Rosebank and park Station and will supply the last leg to the secret venue by bus – because no drinking and driving of course!
The official media sponsor for the event is Kaya FM. The station has a long legacy of supporting the artistic and lifestyle elements that make up all things African.
