We’ve lined up the most mouth-watering food and beverage extravaganzas that will be sizzling in the Mother City
Among the greatest things in life, well-prepared food or perfect thirst-quenching drinks have definitely got to be near the top of the list. It becomes infinitely more pleasurable when it’s brilliant value for money too. Brace yourself for a tasty summer and sink your teeth into these lip-smacking food festivals over the next few months. If you prefer something less solid then gulp up the atmosphere at the following drink festivals.
Food and wine festivals have become synonymous with the Western Cape because of the vast number that take place here each year, but very few of them are dedicated to one type of food or style of cooking. The following fiestas all revolve around one type of dish or beverage, so feast your eyes on three of the Mother City’s most appetising upcoming fêtes.
2015 CAPE TOWN BACONFEST AT LA BOTTEGA RESTAURANT IN WOODSTOCK
Baconfest! Need we say more? Bacon is often thought of as the holy grail of delicious food, and now there is an entire fiesta in honour of this salty, crispy goodness. The Cape Town BaconFest is taking over La Bottega in Woodstock on Saturday, 5 December 2015. Bacon lovers will be able to sample nine succulent varieties of the meat, from bacon pizza and bacon chilli poppers to candied bacon and bacon popcorn! Seriously, why is this not on your calendar?
2016 CAPE TOWN BURGER FESTIVAL AT HAMILTON’S RUGBY CLUB IN GREEN POINT
The next food item below bacon in the hierarchy of tastiness is certainly hamburgers. Fitting, then, that the juicy patty should have its own festival. The Cape Town Burger Festival is still in the planning phase and so some details still need to be confirmed, but what we do know is that it is set to take place at Hamilton’s Rugby Club on Saturday, 16 January 2016. Patrons will be able to tuck into a variety of burger creations, including classics such as the trusty cheeseburger and some more exotic constructions from some of the Mother City’s most loved burger joints.
2016 GIN AND TONIC FESTIVAL IN WOODSTOCK
Nothing screams ‘sunny weekend bliss’ like a good old G&T. So the lads at Mason’s Press in Woodstock will be hosting the inaugural Gin and Tonic Festival on Saturday, 30 January 2016. The zesty celebration of the refreshing beverage will give you the opportunity to sample some top-notch versions of the spirit, specially prepared by some of the city’s finest ginsmiths. You can expect the classic G&T combo, as well as some creative twists on the traditional drink, with some quirkily-named craft concoctions.
CAPE TOWN SUSHI FESTIVAL
Capetonians love sushi almost as much as the wine we produce in this area, so naturally there will be a festival for the Japanese delicacy. Unfortunately, no details have been confirmed yet. One thing we can guarantee is that your tastebuds will be catered for as a variety of sushi styles will be on offer, from sashimi and salmon rolls to prawn tempura and fashion sandwiches. We will update you with more information on this event as soon as we know more.
