Isabelo says THANK YOU!

Many people help to make Isabelo happen. We could not do it alone.

Firstly, a huge thank you to the below corporate 'Friends of Isabelo' who generously and consistently support us via their own business endeavours... 

And thank you to Amélie Vincent and Denis Meyers for kindly creating the very beautiful, and striking Isabelo logo for us.

A Unique Dinner in Brussels

Isabelo held an incredibly successful fundraiser in February 2019.


 A charity dinner, cooked by 25 of the world's best chefs, was held simultaneously across three top restaurants in Brussels - Bon Bon, Bozar and Le Chalet de la Forêt. 

Among the world renowned, Michelen starred chefs who generously gave up their time to support the Isabelo evening were Alain Passard (L’Arpège***, Paris), David Martin (La Paix**, Anderlecht), Pascal Barbot (L’astrance ***, Paris) and Emma Bengtsson (Aquavit** , New York)


The biggest thanks goes to Alexandra Swenden of Swenden Creative Studio for conceptualising and bringing the whole event to life.

The evening raised enough funds to feed our Franschhoek kids for a whole year!

Transforming society through gastronomy

Margot Janse - Finalist 2016

A generation of international chefs have now expanded their role in society and redefined their profession by reaching a broader sphere of influence beyond the kitchen. All over the world, chefs have come to understand that they can use their knowledge, leadership, entrepreneurship and creativity to be part of the transformation of society.

The Basque Culinary World Prize was created to celebrate this evolution, celebrating a chef of any nationality who demonstrates how gastronomy can have a positive impact in fields such as culinary innovation, health, nutrition, education, the environment, the food industry, social or economic development, among others.

Isabelo Christmas

Each year,  Father Christmas pays our special Franschhoek school kids a surprise visit, showering them with gifts funded by Isabelo. 

A truly moving day, filled with gratitude!  


If you or your organisation would like to get involved this Christmas, please do get in touch.
