Good Food & Wine Show 2016

South Africa: Prepare Your Palates for the ‘Fresh’, New Good Food & Wine Show


The Good Food & Wine Show has been revitalised, bringing a menu bursting with delicious offerings and innovative experiences. The rebranded show was launched in Cape Town in May this year, and now Johanesburg can be the next to enjoy the 'Fresh' new look.

“Our aim this year, with revamping the Show’s look and feel, is to provide a more interactive, informative and entertaining offering packed with a profusion of immersive experiences to enjoy and trends to uncover,” says Maria Chieppa, Managing Director of Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa – new owners of the show. “We struck gold with this recipe in Cape Town and will be dishing up more of the same at the Johannesburg show.”

Curator Hannerie Visser, has designed a show that allows visitors to explore and enjoy the latest trends in lifestyle and design, and experience a number of unique sensory experiences associated with good food and wine. What’s more, the Show, in its new format, is a platform at the disposal of the industry. “It’s a space to connect, share and to enjoy one of the best things in the world – food,” says Visser. 

Come see for yourself why some were calling the Cape Town edition the ‘GREAT Food & Wine Show’ with highlights such as a Sensorium capturing the scents of Cape Town from Kalk Bay’s fish and chips to Cape Malay masala, the Wine Wall enabling wine lovers to see and smell some of the best South African and international wines and a pop up cinema giving visitors a comfy space in which to take a breather and watch their favourite foodie movies.

The best part for many show-goers is the free entry into all - but one - of the eight themed theatres, enabling more opportunities to interact with local and international chefs with the likes of George Calombaris, Siba Mtongana, Sarah Graham, Jenny Morris,  and J’Something. Joining them at the Johannesburg show will be Australian chef, restauranteur, author and judge on The Great Australian Bake Off, Matt Moran as well as Private Chef, Neill Anthony.

On his upcoming Johannesburg Good Food & Wine Show experience Calombaris says: “I had such a great time in Cape Town, I am really looking forward to sharing recipes from my new cookbook GREEK and meeting and mingling with MasterChef fans in Johannesburg. It’s been a few years since, between visits there, so looking forward to it!”

The introduction of eight exciting focus areas to explore ensures that there is something to cater to every palate. These include Wellness; Lifestyle; Wine; Beer & Alcohol; Market & Street Food; Kids; Baking and Gourmet. Under each, audiences get to interact with exhibitors, find out about the latest food trends and take part in entertaining and informative hands-on experiences.

After wowing Cape Town crowds, it’s now Johannesburg’s turn to get a taste of the ‘Fresh’, new Good Food & Wine Show. Be sure to check it out in Johannesburg at the Ticketpro Dome from Friday 29 July 2016 to Sunday 31 July 2016.
