Get your appetite ready, The Appetite Fest is heading to Pretoria in August
The biggest culinary and entertainment festival that SA has ever seen is heading to Time Square Casino in Menlyn – and a host of local and international chefs will be sharpening their knives and getting their pots on the boil in preparation.
The dates are confirmed as 18th and 19th August and you can expect to see, taste and experience wine, cheese, craft beer, artisanal foods producers, premium drink brands and loads more, as well as getting your fill of international and local celebrity chefs who will be showing off their culinary prowess in food theatres.
There will be Q&A sessions, meet and greets and book signings as well as master classes and even a super exclusive chefs table too. Expect to see Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston of MasterChef Australia fame as well as top local chefs Siba, Sarah Graham, Chef Nti, J’ Something and many more.
What about the kids you ask? Fear not, the wee ones will have a blast too in the fully access controlled and secure Kids Own zone with professional and caring childminders. Activities include jumping castles, jungle gyms, ball pit, face painting, children’s cooking theatre, coordination games and their very own kid’s food court. For the older crowd, there is Magic Company.
Gourmet food trucks will serve up a diversity of exciting street food, while comedians, DJs, and bands will keep visitors entertained in a vibrant, authentically South African festival-style. Lined up to entertain the crowds are Barry Hilton, Bobby Van Jaarsveld, and Dan Nicholl – and more are still being confirmed!
This is a food fest for the entire family – make sure you come hungry!
