Don’t miss the launch of The Madiba Appreciation Club: A Chef’s Story in Pretoria
More about the book!
Join Chef Brett Ladds for the launch of The Madiba Appreciation Club at Chefs at 566.
Ladds was once given a cigar by Fidel Castro, he talked weightlifting with Swazi king Mswati III and his cooking made Quincy Jones sing. For many years he also served Nelson Mandela many cups of rooibos tea and made him his favourite meals.
Ladds was the executive chef of the SA government and manager of the presidential guesthouse at Bryntirion Estate in Pretoria from 1994–2000, where he served both Mandela and Thabo Mbeki.
The Madiba Appreciation Club tells the heartwarming tale of a young man’s coming of age at a turning point in our history. His stories about meeting kings and queens, presidents, rock stars and even the pope are laced with his unique, self-deprecating sense of humour.
Date: Wednesday, 25 April 2018
