Chefs from across the globe have been featured in an eBook, and South Africa is being represented by Veronica Canha-Hibbert and Stephanie Ceronio.


Global (20 April 2020) – Gourmet chefs, running the top kitchens in the world, share their best recipes during this trying time. Some of the chefs are Michelin Star holders and the best in their fields. Working with the WG Magazine, we get a glimpse into some of the best restaurants in the world.

Flavel Monteiro was inspired to publish the free eBook after seeing a long line of coffins on the news. It was the 23rd of March, and he was witnessing his country and his industry being crippled by the Coronavirus. He wanted to create something that would bring the culinary industry together.

He worked tirelessly with global chefs and released the eBook on Easter Weekend as a way to celebrate. Flavel said it was a truly amazing accomplishment to see it all come together. South Africa was represented in the eBook by chef Veronica Canha-Hibbert and chocolatier Stephanie Ceronio.

South African chef Veronica Canha-Hibbert from The Silo in Cape Town, shared her recipe for Coffee Sous Vide Ostrich Fillet (page 234). South African Chocolatier Stephanie Ceronio from Jack Rabbit Chocolate Studio in Pretoria, shared her decadent recipe for Beurre Noisette Toffee Cookies (page 274). Stephanie also shares a recipe for her signature Bonbons (page 289) and her Basic But Perfect Pasta recipe (page 332).

“84 of the world’s finest chefs from 6 continents, 31 countries, with over 50 Michelin Stars, representing some of the best restaurants from Brazil to Australia who were featured on La Liste, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants and with international awards – we have indeed come together!” – Flavel Monteiro

Paging through the eBook, we are in awe of the recipes shared by the chefs. While many recipes we probably couldn’t make, the inspiration they create is brilliant. We are so proud to see two proudly South Africans featured too!
