If food is life, then you probably already know all about #GFWS2017 or the Good Food and Wine Show.
The 2017 Good Food and Wine show is a must for all foodies. After all, who would not want to attend Africa’s largest foodie event?
The show is a three-day event that runs from Friday to Saturday. The Cape Town and Johannesburg expos are over, but you still have time to catch the next one in Durban.
Here is some of what you can expect to see at the #GFWS2017.
The GFWS teamed up with the Speciality Coffee Association of Southern Africa (SCASA) to host the Barista Championships.
You can watch professional baristas battle each other in all things coffee.
Imagine meeting and cooking with with your favourite chef?
Visitors can get a chance to do exactly that with local and international chefs including Mi Casa’s J’Something, British chef Marco Pierre White, SA’s Jenny Morris and Sarah Graham, and private chef Neil Anthony.
You can also watch your favourite chef in action on stage, cooking up a storm.
Food, Food and More Food
It’s not called the “Good Food” show for nothing. You can expect to see a whole lot of food, including: decadent fudge, delicious smoothies, fresh produce from the Soweto Food Market, churros and cannolis, nut butters, condiments and international cuisine.
Did we forget to mention the 800kg T-Rex dinosaur made entirely of cake?
All the Alcohol
What would a wine show be without wine?
You can sample some of the finest wine our country has to offer. There is also a wine and chocolate pairing available for those who are more adventurous.
If you don’t really like wine then there is plenty of vodka, gin, and other alcohol to go around.
You can take the fight out food and fitness.
The Eat Well, Live Well showcase helps people live a healthy lifestyle. Chefs and experts give you the low-down so you live your best life.
Get to know all about the latest trends and diets. You can also learn how to be healthy while eating food that doesn’t taste bland and awful.
There is a little something for children at the show too.
The Kids Cooking Club provides young, budding chefs with the opportunity to learn basic cooking skills.
The Kids Deco Lab lets children unleash their creative side and decorate cupcakes.
