Renowned chef and restaurateur Liam Tomlin and his team have launched a selection of bespoke recipe cards featuring a range of easy-to-make dishes, all created by the head chefs of his iconic restaurants in Cape Town.
The limited-edition recipe cards cost R250 per set and can be purchased at any of Liam’s restaurants. The sale of which goes towards the Chefs Warehouse MIND YOUR BACKS initiative, which helps support young aspiring chefs from underprivileged backgrounds through training and guidance over four years
Launched before COVID, Mind Your Backs began as an initiative to address mental health challenges and provide support to those in the restaurant industry.
“Pre-COVID I was setting up a foundation called MIND YOUR BACKS, it was a registered company with board members, with a whole medical side set up and of course, Covid came around and it changed the landscape of the foundation and we had to put it on the backburner for a while.”
“The organisation focused on mental health within the restaurant industry and aimed to provide much-needed assistance to individuals within this space. Before covid, we had situations in our kitchens and front of house where individuals were dealing with alcoholism, drugs, depression and anxiety. With many of them unable to afford access to the necessary medication and assistance, it bothered me and as a result, I decided to create MIND YOUR BACKS,” adds Liam.
The recipe cards come in a gift pack of 6 recipes. In the first set, there is a recipe from Liam Tomlin, Ivor jones, David Schneider, Nathanael ‘Nate’ Coe, Braam Beyers and Killian Zietsman.
Each recipe card features a signature simple dish, from Liam’s famous frittata to Ivor’s beloved creme custard and more.
