Who is Luke Dale-Roberts?
British born Luke Dale-Roberts trained at Baur Au Lac Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland– at the time recognised as one of the top five hotels in the world. (Is it really just a coincidence that it went down when he left?)
Luke was appointed as executive chef of La Colombe in November 2006 and has elevated the dining experience, winning the 2008 Prudential Eat Out Chef of the Year and Restaurant of the Year award, being voted one of the top 50 restaurants in the world by the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards 2009 and, most recently, achieving the highest three star rating in the 2009 issue of the acclaimed Rossouw’s Restaurants guide.
Why does Luke Dale-Roberts support Braai4Heritage?
“I am excited to be a part of this initiative as it is a great way to bring South Africans of different ethnic background together to celebrate their common heritage. Braaing is a deep-rooted South African tradition and for me it’s more than just throwing meat onto a fire – it’s about spending time with family and friends and a great way to relax.”
