Celebs square off for Col’Cacchio Celebrity Chef Showdown

The 2018 Col’Cacchio Celebrity Chef Showdown is set to be something special this year with a stellar line-up of Celebrity contenders.

Three of SA’s most popular celebrities will square off against each other, all in the name of charity, by crafting original square-shaped pizzas that will be available in all Col’Cacchio establishments in SA and Namibia. The collaboration includes rapper Jack Parow, chef goddess Siba Mtongana and internet sensation Nadia Jaftha. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Trust, on behalf of the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital.

We are really excited about this year’s Celebrity Chef Showdown. We have managed to secure some great personailitiies to help us raise awareness and much needed funds for a very worthy benefactor. We have received an overwhelming amount of support for this campaign over the years and our aim for the 2018 campaign is to raise more than we have in previous years. – explains Col’Cacchio co-founder, Michael Terespolsky.


Already in its 10th year, this widely-anticipated contest features a mouth-watering selection of gourmet pizzas you’ll have a tough time choosing between.

  • Nadia Jatfha: ‘Jou Ma Sala’ – a spicy chicken Masala infused pizza
  • Jack Parow: ‘Wors Tokolosh’ – a meaty, braai inspired pizza
  • Siba Mtongana: ‘Sibalicious’ – a flavourful sticky chicken gem

Having raised over R2 million for charitable causes through the R5 donation from the sale of each celebrity chef pizza, this Col’Cacchio initiative has grown from strength to strength since 2009. This year’s efforts will contribute to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital’s goal of R112 Million to build a state-of-the-art ER Unit.

You can also donate through a unique pizza shaped QR code, available at various touch points including waiter t-shirts, placemats, the website, the Col’Cacchio app and across all of their social media platforms.
