Radisson Blu Hotel Sandton, Johannesburg

The taste of Joburg

When traveling to a new country or destination, one of the first priorities for many people is to try the local culture and cuisine. Visiting restaurants and cafés and sampling the local kitchen often leaves a lasting impression and tells us a lot about the lifestyle of the local population.

In Johannesburg, there is no better way to learn about the restaurant culture than to attend one of the most anticipated events of the year, Taste of Joburg. The event brings together some of the city’s top restaurants and local artisan producers. To complement the food, local brewers, spirit makers and wineries join in the mix showcasing the best the region has to offer. This all happens outdoors, under the African sun at the Montecasino.

Sampling the best of local cuisine

The event is an opportunity for some of the top chefs to present their favorite signature dishes whilst revealing their culinary skills and cooking philosophy. You are free to wander the stalls as you sample the boutique food market’s offerings. There are also a number of cooking demonstrations at the Pick and Pay Chef’s Theater, the perfect place to pick up new culinary skills including how to create canapés and learn how to match them to wines.

Ticket prices vary depending on how in-depth you want your Taste of Joburg experience to be. The Taste of Joburg happens at a different time each year, so be sure the check their website for more information.
