Since #WorldCancerDay February 4th 2019, we’ve been asking Chefs from all over the World to TAKE THE PLEDGE… ‘I am Chef, and I will make a healthier Pink Dessert for #WorldCancerDay with @PinkTableProjX’, and now we have Chefs in over 30 Countries (and counting) taking the #PinkPuddingChallenge.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS….it’s all quite simple really, all we’re trying to  prove that you can have your cake and eat it, literally, but WITHOUT THE GUILT!

We believe that healthier food choices can be an exciting, decadent and delicious journey, and we’re testing this theory with the toughest challenge of them all…the last course, a.k.a, the pudding!

THE BEST PART is that our fabulous Chefs will DONATE THEIR RECIPE’s to raise funds for a Cancer Beneficiary in their country, via our ‘donate to download’ system, but you’ll have to hang tight to get your hands on these, as we only start to release recipes towards the end of April. In the meantime, to wet your appetites, keep updated here to see which Chefs are willing to take the #PinkPuddingChallenge, or you can follow their fabulous healthier pink decadent entries on FACEBOOK (click here).

OH WAIT, this is actually an even better BEST PART. In OCTOBER 2019, we are excited to be launching a #PinkPuddingChallenge Recipe Book of the top 100 most downloaded entries around the world, ‘DIPPED in PINK – Pink Puddings by Great Chefs doing Great Things’, will be just in time for Christmas orders and proceeds will be evenly distributed among the project beneficiaries.

Here’s the deal Chefs, we want you to make us a pink inspired pudding that’s as healthy as you can make it, while still being decadent & delicious. 

How healthy is up to you, but the healthier the better, put your thinking caps on and do what you can to take all the unhealthy stuff out and put the goodness back in, replace sugar where you can, but keep it yummy, delicious and decadent. Make it exciting, not boring, this is your challenge.

How pink is up to you, you can dip it in pink and just give it a little pink flair, or you can drown it in pink and go full-tilt Bollywood on us and make it an extravaganza of a pink pudding. Your Choice.

And just so you know Chefs, your pledge actually has great meaning. The World Health Organization states that ’30-50% of Cancers can be beaten with Wellness Management’, which includes a healthier diet, and by you accepting this challenge, you help us prove that healthier choices can be exciting choices, and the more we can do that, the more chance we have to prevent cancer.

Yes, Chefs, your participation could help prevent cancer, because the more excited people get about making healthier choices, the more opportunity we have to create sustainable the lifestyle changes.

People don’t easily change under duress or fear of disease, but they definitely more likely if excited.

But we can’t do this alone, we need your help, Chefs Create Cravings, let’s make them good ones.

Challenge Accepted? Uhuh, we thought so…ya ready, here’s what you need to do…


  2. POST A 1-MINUTE VIDEO of yourself & your dessert, telling us what’s healthier about it.
  3. CHALLENGE 5 (or more) other GREAT CHEFS in your video to do the challenge
  4. Tag #PinkPuddingChallenge with @PinkTableProjX + (TAG YOUR CHEFS)
  5. Add as many pictures as you can of the process and final product.
  6. DONATE YOUR #PinkPuddingChallenge RECIPE + PICTURES to the Cancer Beneficiary in your country and mail us your recipe & images to (


You need to be able to legitimately justify what’s healthier about your pudding and provide the recipe & images for online &/or print use. (We are not judging you here and neither are we asking for a 10/10, how healthy is up to you, but we will need to review the recipe with our Dietitians to verify what you say is true, before we can’t post the full recipe on-line for fund-raising & public use.)

By submitting your recipes to (, you relinquish the rights of your recipes and images to The Pink Table Project (Pty)Ltd for online use to raise funds for the beneficiary in your country. Buyers of the recipe will donate direct to your country beneficiary direct by means of a donate & release button. You become the fundraising beacon of hope for your beneficiary.

The Pink Table Project and its partners will not receive any direct financial benefit or commission from the proceeds and sales of these recipes with the online donate & release promotion.

THE BOOK: ‘Dipped in Pink’ – pink puddings by great chefs doing great things

This is the really exciting part as we will publish the Top 100 most downloaded recipes/entries in the #PinkPuddingChallenge Recipe Book, created as an additional beneficiary fundraising platform for all beneficiaries selected. Proceeds will be evenly distributed among all 2019 Beneficiaries of The Pink Table Project if ordered direct, otherwise donated to the beneficiary in country of purchase if ordered through the beneficiary. We will send you a secondary release document for final release.

The Beneficiaries in each country are listed on our Beneficiary Page (Click here) however, if there is no beneficiary in your country as yet, we will select a cancer beneficiary from the full membership base of the Union for International Cancer Control (click here).

That’s it Chefs….let get READY, STEADY, COOK a fabulous pink pudding!
