Africa’s largest foodie event, the Good Food And Wine Show is back this July and promises to be the best culinary experience.
The Good Food & Wine Show (GF&WS), the longest standing food event in South Africa, returns to Joburg from the 28th to the 30th July at the Ticketpro Dome and brings with it more exciting exhibitions, international chefs and gourmet food and wine.
Visitors can expect a higher standard of content as the organisers have decided to split the show this year into nine different areas – market, street food, gourmet, baking, kids, wellness, lifestyle, wine and beer and alcohol. In addition to the nine exhibition areas, there is a cross cutting theme throughout the entire show and the theme for this year is Food Waste as it is one of the major challenges for sustainability and social growth.
And that’s not all. The GF&WS will be attended by none other than world renowned chef, Marco Pierre White and Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen of Jan restaurant in Nice, France. Both Michelin star chefs will present demonstrations, talks and workshops throughout the course of the event.
They will also offer an ultimate dining experience to a select number of guests at the cost of R2500, where they will host a special 3-course meal and give insight into their career as chefs at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton. Other headline chefs include J’Something, Sarah Graham and Jenny Morris from the Food Network TV.
Attending the event with your family? Don’t fret, because special attention is given to kids this year. The programme will offer a theatre, a kid’s corner as well as a dedicated exhibition area for children with the aim to entertain and educate kids and families. Exhibitors and sponsors will have an opportunity to showcase the best products and services that kids enjoy like gadgets, foods, activities. So it really promises to be an event for the whole family.
Taste the food, pair the wine and enjoy the delicious cuisine that local exhibitors have to offer at this year’s Good Food and Wine Show.
