Taste, hear, see and smell at the Good Food & Wine Show Gauteng
Food festivals can be traced back centuries. There is a long tradition of giving thanks for the harvest and celebrating the earth’s abundance, and even honouring the earth gods.
Today, anyone who appreciates the intricacies of good food and wine has to agree that the modern food festival remains a celebration of abundance and appreciation.
And that is why the annual Good Food & Wine Show is such cause for excitement. South Africa’s ‘festival of food’ brings together chefs and wannabes, experts and beginners in a fusion of fragrant food and award-winning wine.
This year’s Good Food & Wine Show is not to be missed. If you are in Johannesburg from 23 to 26 July, join in at the Ticketpro Dome, where you will be able to taste, hear, see and smell good food at its best. Look out for presentations by MasterChef Australia winner Brent Owens (2014), MasterChef UK judge John Torode, celebrity chef Reza Mahammad, British food writer Tom Parker Bowles and Australian patissier Adriano Zumbo. Local gals Jenny Morris and Siba Mtongana will also be present to spice up the event with some authentic South African dishes. In short, expect a grocery-bagful of international and local talent, all ready to cook.
And it’s not just interactive cooking classes – there will also be stalls to showcase the celebrity talent and engage your tastebuds. There’s a reason why it’s called the foodie event of the year! Expect food, glorious food!
The Good Food & Wine Show Gauteng promises to be both an educational experience and a satisfactory sensory extravaganza. And all those culinary workshops are sure to work up an appetite for more adventurous cooking at home, so be sure to take notes!
