Cape Town – Channel24 wined and dined like royalty with internationally acclaimed chef Neill Anthony on Tuesday afternoon for the launch of the sexy new series on Food Network, Neill Anthony – Private Chef.

What’s it all about:

Neill Anthony – Private Chef is a hot new reality cooking series that provides a peek into the day-to-day life of a private chef in South Africa. 

Neill is invited to cook in the homes of friends, acquaintances and clients for their personal dinner parties, while the audience gets to watch and learn how to cook restaurant quality food with all the pro-chef tips included.

With different cooking locations, 24/7 availability and unique requests, no situation is too much to handle for Cape Town’s ever-so-charismatic personal chef.


*Neill Anthony has travelled worldwide cooking for celebrities such as Elton John, Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Paul McCartney and Kylie Minogue. He also worked under Gordon Ramsey learning all the tricks of the trade.

*In the series, Neill will cook for socialites and celebs including the likes of Francois Pienaar.

*Neill’s biggest cooking influence is Mother Nature. Cooking with the amazing ingredients she provides allows him the opportunity to transform them and make them better.

*Quote of the day: "Being a great private chef is all in the preparation, cling film and small containers!"

* Neill Anthony - Private Chef premieres on the Food Network channel (DStv 175) on 7 April at 20:00.
