Good Food & Wine Show 2012 in photos and video
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
On my short, but tasty, tour of this premiere food and wine event on Thursday, May 24, 2012, I indulged in decadently sweet pancakes at the Snowflake stand (for only R4 each!), was swept away by the sultry sounds of local crooner Chad Saaiman at the Amarula exhibit and took my tastes buds on an international journey of discovery thanks to the South American pastries by the new cooking kid on the block, Como Empanadas.
The Chefs in Action Theatre was of course the focal point of the evening and, with celebrity baker Buddy Valastro aka The Cake Boss making the impossible possible, attendees were clamouring for viewing space.
Here are few images and video clips of the Good Food & Wine Show:
