Win tickets to the Good Food & Wine Show in Cape Town
If you are a foodie then you, like me, are probably eagerly anticipating the Good Food and Wine Show which takes place in Cape Town from 13-16 May 2010. Those of you in Johannesburg and Durban have to wait a bit longer as the Johannesburg show takes place from 23-26 September and Durban’s show on 25-28 November.
If you are not one of “those” food people although I think everyone is to a certain extent (who doesn’t love food?) this is the show to get you excited about food. Expect to find the finest South Africa has to offer in food, beverage and lifestyle. If that hasn’t got you excited then the international line-up should do the trick…
The chef everyone body loves to hate Gordon Ramsay makes his first public appearance in South Africa and joining him is the Willy Wonka of the cooking world Willie Harcourt-Cooze, master pâtissier Eric Lanlard, the vibrant Giorgio Locatelli and Anjum Anand who brings her own style to Indian cooking. You can watch these chefs in the Chefs in Action theatre as they demonstrate their signature dishes.
There are so many other things to see, do and experience at this show. Enjoy cooking outdoors? Then you will enjoy the Outdoor Theatre which showcases the best of the best in outdoor cooking, from built-in gas braai’s to maximising your outdoor living area as well as delicious new recipes. You are also able to purchase autographed copies of cookbooks in the Books for Cooks section, who will you take home? Grolsch is host to the Beer and Food Pairing Theatre come and discover this new concept of pairing beer (instead of the traditional wine) with food.
Those who enjoy a good cocktail but have no idea how to make one can find out in the Interactive Cocktail Workshops or if you enjoy standing on the other side of the bar you can watch the national classic and flair competitions that will be taking place. You may just be surprised by what can be done with a bottle and a cocktail shaker and I am sure you will go home and try it yourself. In the Alchemy of Gold Brandy Theatre you will be able to taste various brandies, both local and international.
If you have ever watched one of these chef’s on television you have most probably wanted to taste the dish in your own living room, but this isn’t possible. Now in the Celebrity Chef Restaurant you will be able to taste the dishes you have seen prepared at the Chefs in Action Theatre. An opportunity not to be missed! Purchase some delicious, fresh produce from the Slow Food Market to take home so you can be a chef in your own home and all good food can do with some wine so why not buy some from the Great Wine Sale?
This will be a great day out and you will learn some new tricks to wow your friends with at your next dinner party or braai!
