Cape Town’s biggest culinary spectacle, the Good Food & Wine show, will be kicking off tomorrow and ending on 29 May at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. This year’s highlights include Sherwyn Weaich’s appearance at the Albany Bakeries stand and the Baking Theatre.
The Good Food & Wine Show celebrity chef line-up remains as impressive as ever, and features a host of local and international stars, including Jenny Morris, J’ Something, George Colombaris, Sherwyn Weaich, Adriano Zumbo, Siba Mtongana, Sarah Graham, Bertus Basson, Chef Christo, Claire Allen and Siphokazi Mdlankomo, among others.
For the first time, the 2016 Good Food & Wine Show will centre on a set theme. This year, the driving force behind the thinking, recipes and innovations is FRESH. In other changes, the event has been extended to three full days, while open times have also been lengthened to accommodate enthusiastic Capetonians.
There is more good news for pensioners, who don’t have to bother thinking about an entry fee on Friday the 27th of May, while entry to the Chef’s Open Theatre is free to the public for the duration of the event.
The Baking Theatre, sponsored by Albany Bakeries, is another big highlight. It will host a range of activities, including a fascinating series of My Kitchen appearances from Executive Chef, Braai Master and television host Sherwyn Weaich and his much loved Gourmet Bushie brand.
The Gourmet Bushie is an increasingly popular and prominent lifestyle reality cooking brand that was born following a string of high profile appearances from Weaich on shows such as MasterChef and Ultimate Braai Master, among many others. In recent years Weaich and The Gourmet Bushie brand have travelled across Europe and Southern Africa, cooking alongside local and international chefs and hosting demonstrations and experiences at high profile events.
