The Durban Good Food And Wine Show
The lineup for this years Good Food & Wine Show in Durban is undoubtedly the most diverse yet! With world class chefs such as UK restaurateur and author Rick Stein, MasterChef Australia 2014 winner Brent Owens, and Durban born Jenny Morris.
The Prince of Spice Reza Mahammad – a firm favourite with South African television viewers – will be back at the Good Food & Wine Show in Durban thanks to overwhelming demand from audiences. Another spice maestro joining the line up is Yudhika Sujanani, also known as the “curry queen of bling”.
Reza will be joining the Giggling Gourmet in a new Food Network series Jenny & Reza’s Fabulous Food Academy, to be aired on the channel (DStv Channel 175) later this year.
Winner of MasterChef Australia 2014, Brent Owens, will be joined by fellow Aussie finalist, the quirky and tattooed Renae Smith, labelled the “Mystery Box Queen” by Owens and her fellow Season 6 contestants. Also signed for the Durban Good Food & Wine Show is MasterChef South Africa 2014 winner Roxi Wardman, the leopard- print wearing former train driver assistant from Durban who recently opened her own Durban eatery.
Wardman makes a guest appearance in the Short Chef Skinny Chef theatre, launched by her former MasterChef South Africa competitors Siphokazi Mdlankomo and Claire Allen.
Fun, and interactive, this cooking performance will leave audiences full of laughs, learning interesting tips and techniques, pairings, cook’s cheats and recipes they can make at home with ease. Aside from the dynamic duo of Siphokazi and Claire, there will be guest appearances from fellow MasterChef South Africa Season 3 contestants including Roxi, Penny Fitchet and Ndumeso Mncwabe.
Says Allen: “The idea for Short Chef Skinny Chef was born in Durban so it is fitting that we are launching the concept here. Sipho and I were roommates in Durban for the MCSA group challenge, we cooked off against each other but Durban was where the idea for SCSC was born. I always knew we would work well together and I am so excited to be finally launching this project.”
The Durban Good Food & Wine Show takes place from October 30 to November 1 at the Durban Exhibition Centre. There will be book signings with all the celebrity chefs at the show.
