IMG_9583

3Sixty recently launched their new menu, with a 10 course tasting menu to selected media. Mzansi Life & Style was lucky enough to be part of this selection.

Blake Anderson was appointed as the Complex Executive Chef of Gauteng’s premier entertainment destination, Montecasino, in October last year and, having spent the first six months settling in to the challenges of running a 24/7 operation, has now turned his significant culinary talents to reinventing the menu of the property’s trademark restaurant on the casino floor.

Here is a summary of these ambrosial delights, which we had the honour of watching the chefs prepare, at the 3SIXTY’s chef’s bench, with a birds-eye view of the kitchen.
