FOOD - what can I say? I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame. And what a good hot flame this weekend is going to be. If you are in Cape Town this weekend you know why... Don't you!? You have the opportunity to visit The Good Food and Wine Show. If you haven't already heard about it, it is this huge food event that has loads of cool food related stalls and events going on - the WHOLE weekend :)

There is food to try and food to buy and food so see and food being made and food everything!  Of course I will be going!

Of all the things happening at the Good Food and wine show they have this one idea that I am particularly drawn to - They have these cooking theaters were you can watch food being prepared. One of them being Lindt (drool) and you know me and chocolate :) whats not to love right?

But there is more than just Lindt  *gasp (why who knows? -the world should revolve around chocolate) But they do have several theaters all with very interesting chefs lined up in each.
But one in particular caught my eye.... what for it.... strained silence *crickets chirping They are having Heston Blummenthal from the michelin starred Fat Duck restaurant. He is acclaimed as the coolest chef in the world - so of course I need to go see for myself- (compliments of the Good Food and Wine Show) I'll be sure to report back with my findings and tastings.

So with the Good Food and Wine Show starting tomorrow there is no excuse not to start the weekend off early and go give your taste buds a really good time out :) I'm sure going to


  1. You're going to see Heston? Oh man.....I wish! But will live vicariously through you and wait for your report back...Enjoy. I might bump into you somewhere around glorious food!! xx

  2. Lol, you're right, the world should revolve around chocolate! ;) Wish I was in the area, this sounds like a fantastic event!

  3. @Jacci - yay! :) see you there maybe

    @colleen - yeah maybe i will bump into you - I wonder if we'll recognize each other

    @Faith - where do you live? It is a great event :)

  4. I'm pretty stoked to see Heston cooking up a storm as well. See you there!

  5. One major reason to miss CT - the Good Food & Wine Show. So so sad :(

    YOu'll have to try double the amount of things you would normally? See? Just because I'm not there.

    And Heston ... welll..... i quite like him actually!

  6. @smart cookie - see you there :)

    @shayne - I will try lots and lots promise :) Im looking forward to seeing Heston :)
