Taste of Cape Town 2015
Taste of Cape Town is always a must-visit event on the calendar of Mother City foodies, and this year will be no exception. The festival date is around the corner, happening from the 10th to the 12th of April 2015, and promises to be jam-packed with fabulous food, drink and entertainment.
“Our 8th year promises to be more festive than ever, with loads of new features, a collection of delicious restaurants and of course the sun, sea and mountain that make Taste of Cape Town so iconic,” says Justine Drake, Festival Director.
In addition to the pop-ups, a few top restaurants and their chefs will be there to show festival goers why they’re considered the cream of the crop in and around the Mother City. The restaurants taking part include a few Taste-veterans like Azure Restaurant at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa with Christo Pretorius, Camissa Brasserie with Jocelyn Myers-Adams & Jason Franco, Cosecha Restaurant at Noble Hill with Riana Robertson and Longridge Restaurant with Bruce Von Pressentin. Making their debut at the festival this year are Beluga with sushi master, Alan Huang, Don Armando with Daniel Toledo of Il leone fame, Hemelhuijs with its innovative owner & chef, Jacques Erasmus and Kitima at The Kronendal with Lai Kuan Geo.
There will be loads of great food and wine on for tasting as well as great live entertainment throughout the festival.
