Johannesburg and Cape Town are set to appreciate the street culinary experience this year at the Street Food Festival taking place on 26 July and 01 August.
The Street Food Festival provides wannabe chefs a stand to learn how to make a sustainable business from their passion.
Launched in Cape Town in 2014, the festival prides itself on its reputation to draw some of South Africa’s best street food vendors, including food trucks and gourmet pop-up stalls, to one space – last year over 2000 foodies attended.
The festival is free and serves authentic street fare food that is made from quality ingredients. The menus will include cultural foods such as cow cheeks, mielies, samoosas, shisa nyama, bunny chows, gatsbys, rotis and vetkoek.
There will also be a daylong seminar where attendees will learn everything from food styling to how to deal with the media, from South Africa’s food industry influencers.
Hannerie Visser, Director of the Street Food Festival, said: “We hope that by showcasing our South African street food culture, we will inspire and empower people to pursue their love for food as a career and we want to give attendees the opportunity to experience food that is good, honest and simple, but so often overlooked.”
