Taste of Joburg is back once again and this year, it’s 5th year, is bound to be the best ever. Taking place from the 15th till the 18th of September at the Montecasino Outdoor Events arena, the Taste festival is going to take your tastebuds on a ’round-the-world’ trip with flavours from France, Spain, Italy, the East and Africa all being showcased by the different restaurants and chefs.
This year has one of the most exciting line-ups of all the Taste festivals as some of my favourite Joburg chefs will be sharing their signature dishes with attendees. Nancy Kinchela from The Saxon, Marthinus Ferreira from DW eleven-13 and Allistaire Lawrence from Roots @ Forum Homini are just 3 of the 14 chefs that will be at this year’s Taste. And believe me, you do NOT want to miss Nancy Kinchela’s food. I have eaten at The Saxon twice this year and both times have been mind-blowingly good.
Along with the chefs and fabulous food, Taste of Joburg also offers the Pick ‘n Pay Fresh living Chef’s theatre where there will be cooking demo’s, culinary challenges and entertaining editorials. There will also be a Pick ‘n Pay wine and canape experience, a small producer’s market, a KidsZone and of course there will beverage showcases by Nederburg, San Pellegrino, Jagermeister and more.
If you would like to join in the festivities look no further. I have 10 double entry tickets (for you and a partner) to give away and all you need to do is comment on this post. Remember, you have to live in Joburg to be eligible for the draw. (The tickets do not come with crowns (the currency of the festival) ) The first 10 people to comment will be the lucky winners.
