The GFWS is headed to Joburg

One of the most exciting elements of the revamped Good Food & Wine Show is the Chefs Table series of masterclasses. Over the three days of the show, top international chefs and our favourite South African kitchen stars will host two-hour sessions where each will share the secrets of their signature dishes, do a demonstration and answer your questions before sitting down with you to taste the dishes. images Best of all, these events are limited to 40 guests so that you will be assured of a personal, intimate experience with the likes of international cooking greats Matt Moran and George Calombaris. Famous for his role on MasterChef Australia and The Great Australian Bake Off, Moran is an Australian food icon with a slew of awards, best-selling cookbooks and dining establishments to his name. Fellow Aussie and MasterChef Australia judge Calombaris has earned accolades and respect from culinary aficionados for his cuisine, owns several successful restaurants and has recently launched a range of pots and pans. images3 Among the South African chefs who will be there are Siba Mtongana, Sarah Graham and Jenny Morris. Mtongana, a former food editor at Drum magazine and SAFTA winner, is the star of Siba’s Table with three prestigious Galliova Awards under her belt. Graham, the first South African food blogger to be awarded a cookbook contract, has gone on to film two cooking shows, with another season of Sarah Graham’s Food Safari in production this year. One of South Africa's most-loved food personalities, Morris’ best-selling cookbooks, popular TV shows and contributions to magazines and radio have made her a household name. images4 The Good Food & Wine Show is happening at the TicketPro Dome in Johannesburg from Friday 29 July until Sunday 31 July, and tickets are available from TicketPro or at the door.
