Good Food and Wine Show Cape Town

The Good Food and Wine show swings into Cape Town today. Sleeves rolled up, salt and pepper at the ready, Cape Town's kitchen-groupies are twitching as excitably as sugared kids at Christmas. 

The Good Food and Wine Show brings culinary theater, big-name book signings and workshops by world-class chefs. The Chefs In Action Theater brings us the BBC's best chefs in live rapport with local celebs, recreating their most innovative and favourite recipes.

For the green-thumbed, prime organic produce is on sale, and the slow food market shows us exactly why slow food is so worth the wait.

And with a children's cooking workshop distracting the rugrats, why not let loose a little. It's cocktail o'clock all day – and if that's far too fruity for you, hit the great wine sale, the brandy tasting arena or the food and beer pairing (mmm, good!).

The bourbon-soaked cherry on the top ? A guest appearance by guru Gordon Ramsay, has the gourmet girlies (and perhaps some guys – it is Cape Town) weak at the knees.

And after sipping and snacking to your hearts content, why not come and lay your precious head on one of 17 on Loader's pure cotton pillows?

  1. This post illustrates exactly why I love Cape Town so much. The constant festivals and food and wine workshops and culture is what adds so much character to the area. And since I love both food and wine, it’s the perfect place to relax with some delicious South African cuisine and a glass of rich cabernet from Cape Winelands. Yum!
