The annual Sunday Times Food Show promises to be bigger and better with the addition of another exhibition hall within the Sandton Convention Centre. This year’s show will expand its themed footprint beyond food and wine to incorporate culinary-related lifestyle elements including youth-specific activities, kitchenware, cookery books, gadgetry, appliances and home ware – with everything from table linen, crockery, cutlery and glassware to indoor and outdoor furnishings and table-settings.
The 2008 Sunday Times Food Show will feature a primary theatre seating 750 people, where the BBC’s celebrity chefs and South Africa’s best loved food personalities will present courses, lectures and shows, as well as a secondary free-of-charge intimate theatre seating of 75 guests featuring local demonstrations and workshops.
Of local and international celebrity chefs and food personalities, produce and ingredients, gadgets and gizmos, food and drink, inspi.jpgration and expertise — all professionally packaged to cause a culinary stir. And taste the world of tomorrow at the 2008 Sunday Times Food Show — a lip-smacking culinary explosion of the hottest talent and coolest trends.
The Sunday Times Food Awards will complement the Food Show with top chefs in the categories of ‘Qualified’, ‘Unqualified’, and a ‘School Challenge’. There will also be a Sunday Times It’s My Business component to recognise top emerging businesses within the food industry. The 2008 Awards will be conferred at the Sunday Times Food Awards cocktail event on Saturday, 5 July.
The Sunday Times Food Show has partnered with the Cape Wine Academy for 2008 to introduce a ‘Food & Wine Experience’ theatre that will offer visitors the opportunity to experience food and wine pairing, free of charge, presented by Cape Wine Masters.
The show is set to begin on 3 July 2008 and lasts for 3 days. Tickets are available through Computicket so get yours now.
