A feast for the senses, this delicious food festival is not one to be missed!
Lucky lil old me had the good fortune of attending this annual fest for a 3rd year in a row.
Basically it’s a smorgasboard of samplers and the currency at the festival is called a “crown”. one trades these “crowns” (tickets as shown below) for food.
1 Crown = R5
Sadly this year my 2 favourite vendors Beefcakes Restaurant and Lindt Chocolate Studio were nowhere in site 🙁
Despite this tragedy; I forged on like the dedicated foodie that I am and not only treated my tastebuds to the delectable bite size more-ish moresals on offer:
but also savoured the cool jazz sounds of my uber talented muso friend Mr Elton Goslett on the Cape Town Angels Stage.
Being in the hospitality industry has it’s perks and of course I’d be remiss if I didn’t punt my own brand The Table Bay Hotel‘s chic brasserie Camissa. Where one could savour ostrich tartare, Springbok stew and a south african favourite peppermint crisp dessert.
Rounded off with a lovely glass of the house red or white wine.
Those lucky enough to stop at the stand, also received a 50% off voucher for your next visit to Camissa – which i’ll definitely be using!
There were some good cooking classes on the go by Robertsons spices where (and I only learnt this much later, like after I left the show) guests got 6 FREE Robertson spices after the “making your burger demo!
Not to mention the mixology drink labs, from Bacardi to the yummy frozen Manhattan I tasted from Original Shaken Cocktails!
Last but definitely not least I fell in love with these very funky contempory art human head wine coolers.
Wouldn’t mind one of those in my home!
If you didn’t get a chance to vistit the TASTE festival this year 10 – 12 April 2015;
there’s always next year!
