Programme for South African Cheese Festival 2019
The festival programme includes more than 18 experiences including food theatres with tastings and presentations, live music, as well as fun activities:
In the Cheese Emporium, one can taste and buy a variety of cheeses – from old favourites to innovative new ones.
The Italian Experience is a brand new piazza with everything Italian – from Mozzarella and olives to Provolone, Prosciutto di Parma, pasta, pesto and more!
In the Tasting Room, one can watch, listen and taste at no extra cost with presentations by well-known foodies such as The Kate Tin (Katelyn Allegra), The Food Fox (Ilse van der Merwe), celebrity chef Pete Goffe-Wood as well as the popular ‘Bok Radio’ breakfast duo Wimpie and Le-Lue.
Cape Made: Taste the Alternative is a collection of alternative products such as olives, honey and rooibos to pick and choose from … with bargains directly from producers, thanks to a partnership with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture.
In the Cape Made Kitchen, one can experience a taste of magic as chefs from the Private Hotel School pair cheese with bread and alternative products. As a bonus there is a free recipe book to take home!
The Ladismith Cheese Carving Competition is a daily highlight. Enter for free at the festival, prove your creativity, carve a cheese and win great prizes!
In the Gourmet Lane, popular food stalls serve delicious dishes – with even more cheese!
The Kiddies Corner offers fun for the children while parents relax.
