The outrageously popular Street Food Festival will return in September with an expanded 10-day program, including food walks, food movie screenings, and two big weekend markets in Joburg and Cape Town.
The festival’s weekend markets will burst with local street food vendors, and feature entertainment from live DJs, and a program of talks by local food entrepreneurs.
In Cape Town, speakers will include the creator of Dial-A-Koesister, whose business offers Sunday morning deliveries of the proudly South African treat; someone from Toast Ale, which makes beer from unsold bread; and Abigail Mbalo-Mokoena of 4Roomed eKasi Culture, who brings fine dining to Khayelitsha.
As part of an ongoing commitment to enterprise development, emerging entrepreneurs will be able to apply for a free stand.
To celebrate the announcement of the new festival format, Cape Town bagel spot Max Bagels is making a limited edition bagel tomorrow (Thursday 1 March), for one day only. The kebagel will be a lamb kebab bagel wth all the trimmings: tzatziki, chilli sauce, hummus, tahini, pickled chilli and cabbage.
