This weekend one of the best foodie events to hit Cape Town every year is happening, The Good Food and Wine Show is running between 27 to 29th May at the CTICC. It’s the premier food and Wine show with great food stalls from Cape Town’s best restaurants and impeccable wines and beer from the winelands and coast. This years GFWS promises to deliver something new!
The new Good Food and Wine Show launches in Cape Town. It’s Africa’s largest culinary event, and it launches with the theme Fresh. It’s all about the prevailing global obsession with sustainability and a healthier planet, and it’s inspired by the global trend for urban farming and the gradual urbanisation of rural contexts.
This, the golden thread throughout the Cape Town show, is expressed through innovative culinary experiences, a variety of themes and programmes, and our selection of chefs.
With that said, and all the attractions that awaits there’s one dynamic chef pairing that I look forward to seeing most Short Chef Skinny Chef
1.What is the first recipe that you learnt to cook and how old were you?
I must have been around 6 or 7 and it was a potato bake. I am up for the challenge but I think I make the best in the business.
2.What is your number one indulgence food?
Potatoes, ha ha, I really love chips. And mash and potato bake! I love the comfort feelings around carbs and have on many accounts come home after a stressful day and made a baked potatoe with butter and enjoyed it on the couch with a glass of a wine and my favourite TV. show.
3.You are a very beautiful woman, who cooks, yet still maintain a healthy weight. How do you strike a balance between healthy and unhealthy food in the way you cook?
4.What do you eat in a normal day.
Lemon water to start, then toast or a green juice and fruit. For lunch it’s leftovers from dinner this night before or a salad, Dinners vary. I’m single so if I’m not at a dinner party or restaurant I probably cheating with pizza on the couch. But there are times that I make soup or whip up something tasty.
5.What are some of the essential cooking utensils that everyone should have in their kitchen.
My top 3 utensils are my Global chefs knife, my good quality olive wooden spoon and a good quality pot or pan, I’m very lucky to be sponsored by ScanPan, Investing in good cooking equipment is so important.
6.What are the cooking ingredients that you cannot live without?
Garlic, lemon and butter.
7.What is your favourite recipe to make?
I love making stew and dumplings.
8. Sweet, salty or spicy?
Salty wins, hands down!
9. What according to you are three recipes that everyone should be able to cook by the time that they’re 25?
You need to know how to make a whole roast chicken with all the sides, as well as a pot of soup and a decadent chocolate cake. I could live off that menu !
