Top local celebrity chefs Reuben Riffel, Callie-Anne, Sarah Graham and J’Something will be bringing their celebrity-hosted restaurants right to your doorstep at the festival.
In addition, the Delicious Gourmet Food Market is set to excite your taste buds with the best artisanal, gourmet market and traditional food Jozi has to offer. Festival goers will be spoiled for choice with the biggest cornucopia of options yet, from a fiery Durban curry and tandoor roti to Italian pizza and pasta. Try out our kebabs and schwarmas, Spanish paella, Thai spring rolls, Japanese sushi and fusion Dim Sum. We return closer to home with traditional African menus, such as plates of Nigerian and Congolese flavourful cuisines. American BBQ briskets and smoked southern chicken get served up alongside hotdogs, dagwoods and venison burgers.
Picnic platters can be stuffed with a selection of cheeses, traditional Polish smoked meats, local olives from Prince Albert and Knysna Oysters, and for the more adventurous extra crispy Mopane worms.
Super-indulgent sweet treats will have you ditching your summer diet with Mexican churros, Belgian waffles and tarts as well as the sinful delights produced by students of the highly acclaimed Johannesburg Culinary and Pastry School. Don’t miss the wide selection of flavours of Italian gelato.
