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.
