Delicious International Food and Music Festival


South Africa’s first international food and music festival, presented by DSTv in association with Checkers, Ocean Basket, The Sunday Times and the Sowetan, will bring world-class culinary talent and entertainment to the Blue Hill Equestrian Estate in Kyalami. British celebrity chefs Aldo Zilli, Ed Baines and John Burton Race will showcase their signature dishes at their own pop-up restaurants whilst top-selling British band, Jamiroquai, and some of the best local acts will provide entertainment at the festival. Castle Milk Stout, the official beer partner, will also give festival-goers a chance to experience the limited-edition chocolate flavoured Castle Milk Stout. Ocean Basket will present a sushi pop-up bar where Sushi World Cup 2013 winner Pepi Anevski and local champ Sam Moima will launch Ocean Basket’s new sushi menu. The festival will also include an artisanal food market with over 70 stalls where shoppers can indulge in a vast array of African, European and pan-Asian cuisine. DStv’s Celebrity Chef Freestyle Cook-off with Coco Reinharz will also add a fun and interactive dimension to this food-lovers’ festival, as he will include the audience’s ingredient suggestions into the meal he prepares. Parents needn’t worry about their little ones, as there will be child-friendly areas hosted by DSTv with various activities to keep kids entertained during the festivities. British acid jazz band Jamiroquai and a host of other South African artists including Prime Circle, Khuli Chana, Lira, Danny K, MiCasa, BlackByrd and Household Funk will perform outside on both days.
