He’s nearly as well known for his fiery temper as he is for his heavenly culinary creations … celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is headed to the Good Food & Wine Show 2013 in Cape Town from Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 May, 2013.

One of the finest gourmet events in the world, the Good Food & Wine Show, hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, continues to bring the culinary crème de la crème to the Mother City each year.

Ramsay, a British television personality, restaurateur and presenter of the successful TV series (UK and US versions) Hell's Kitchen, The F Word, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef and Hotel Hell, is as excited to travel to our shores as we are to have him.

He took to Twitter to express his sentiments: “I’ll be cooking up a storm at the Good Food and Wine Show in Cape Town next week. Come down and say howzit! Gx”

The ultimate kitchen commander will be headlining the Checkers Chef Theatre, whipping up his trademark gourmet treats and teaching you how to recreate them at home alongside international BBC chefs, including Eric Lanlard and Bill Granger, and Junior MasterChef Australia winner Isabella Bliss and her twin sister Sofia.

Before you head out to see the great man in action at the Good Food & Wine Show, sink your teeth into these must-know tips:

  • Go early: there are plenty of delicious stalls, demos and entertainment acts to see and if you truly want to get value for your money, it’s best to head down to the CTICC early
  • Check the schedule: this year’s show boasts the scrumptious Pillsbury and Häagen-Dazs-sponsored Decadent Desserts Theatre, the interactive Real Food Theatre (a series of organic food demos and foodie bloggers’ presentations) as well as the South African Bar Show, where sexy bartenders will be showing off their good looks and awesome cocktail-mixing moves in the Mixology Championships, so keep an eye on the schedule to which shows are happening
  • Take extra cash along: with all of the mouth-watering treats on offer, you are definitely going to want to take a few of them home with you, so be sure to take along some money. There are express ATMS available at the show, too
