Your Cape Town weekend: foodie things to do from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 April, 2013
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.
We're just hours away from a scrumptious weekend in Cape Town, the delicious Mother City. So gear up for 48 hours of incredible smells, tastes and sights. Whether you’re a fine-dining lover, a fresh-goods fanatic or a food and wine aficionado, there is something for everyone in our delectable town this weekend.
Join me at the following foodie events in Cape Town from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 April, 2013:
It’s the premier culinary event of the year, and all the tasty action goes down at the Green Point Cricket Club this weekend.
This year’s Taste of Cape Town will be filled to the brim with fare from the most mouth-wateringly great restaurants, including Signal Restaurant at the Cape Grace, the Twelve Apostles Hotel’s Azure Restaurant and more. The festival will also showcase a few small producers, including the Oyster Lady and the Craft Beer Project.
Satisfy your entertainment cravings, too, with a spectacular line-up of artists, including the fiery Rage of Fire duo at the Cape Town Angels Benefit stage.

Saturday mornings mean you can browse at your leisure through the lip-smacking food stalls at the delightful City Bowl Market in Gardens.
For an indulgent breakfast, why not pair an authentic Belgian waffle from Once More with a specialty coffee from Care for Coffee.

I can think of few things that are as relaxing and luxurious as an afternoon spent savouring the tastes of good wine and the luscious greenery at the impressive Vineyard Hotel & Spa in Newlands.
Don’t miss its Pinot Noir Festival this Sunday, which at just R165 per person, including a souvenir glass, will have you sampling some of the Western Cape's vintage wines.
