As part of the cultural partnership programme between the two countries, Schoeman will present a menu of South African heritage food, which highlights the Dutch, Malay and indigenous cultures that have contributed to South African cuisine. He will cook three four-course meals for 100 guests each from 18-20 October, as well as conduct a cooking workshop. The events will take place at the Restaurant Les Grandes Tables du Channel in Calais.
Schoeman is one of three South African chefs chosen to bring a South African gastronomic experience to France. In September, Christiaan Campbell, executive chef at Delaire Graff Estate was featured as Chef in Residence in Marseilles, and in November, Durban-based Nompumelelo Mqwebu of Africa Meets European Cuisine will visit Paris as Chef in Residence.
Last year, South Africa hosted Seasons 2012, which showcased French arts and culture through a variety of events. This year, France is the host country, and this is just one component of a multi-faceted cultural exchange programme.
