The Good Food & Wine Show - A Scrumptious Delight

With the best of the best on offer in food and wine at the Good Food & Wine Show this year, the event which is a calendar favourite, promises a feast fit for a King and was it just.  I had a delightful day yesterday at the show and was spoilt for choice with all put forward.


Chefs such as George Calombaris who become famous with South African television viewers as one of the judges of the hugely popular TV show MasterChef Australia and Adam Liaw whom was a winner on the show will be demonstrating their mastered talents at “the Chefs in Action Theatre” whilst whipping up their yummy signature dishes.


If it’s your dream to meet George whom owns 5 very successful restaurants around the world, you may just be lucky enough.  This is what he had to say: “I am thrilled to be coming to Johannesburg. I had to cancel last year because of filming commitments. There are going to be a few little surprises during the demonstrations. It’s an opportunity for people to come and meet me and get a good idea of who I am and why food has played such a major part in my life.”


Adam Liaw wowed audiences at last year’s Jozi Good Food & Wine Show. What can audiences expect this time around? I want people to go away and make the dish. They must leave with a few tips and understand how I feel about food. It’s not about showing them what a great cook I am but how easy it is to make food in your own home.”



So with recipes and live demonstrations from celebrity chefs under the belt, what else can be expected from the show?  Here are a few top attractions:


  • Amarula Cocktail Experience.
  • Artisan Food Market
  • Barista Championships
  • Brandy Theatre
  • Chefs In Action Theatre
  • City Bites
  • The Culinary Olympic Team
  • Denny Mushroom Braai and Buy Pavilion
  • Get Fresh with DStv
  • The Life’s Good Theatre
  • Lindt Chocolate Theatre
  • Little Cooks Club
  • Maserati
  • MasterChef Live Experience
  • MTN Media Lounge
  • Product of the Year Awards


The only other thing missing is the sampling of that which is classed as the best in SA.  So make sure you go hungry with pockets full of cash because hungry neither thirsty will you leave.


The show began on Friday and ends on Monday the 24th so you still have 2 full days to experience the treats.  Entrance tickets to the show (R!35 for adults and R50 for children; children under 2 are free) can be bought through Computicket. This year the ticket price allows visitors access into the popular Chefs in Action theatre.
