9 reasons why you should buy a ticket to FOOD XX this February

FOOD XX, the platform and movement that focuses on empowering content for women by women in South Africa’s food and drinks industry, is hosting its first conference and awards on 12 February in Cape Town. Here are nine reasons why you should buy a ticket once your salary lands. (You don’t have to be a woman yourself; all allies are welcome!)

It’s a safe space for much-needed conversations about women’s roles in the kitchen and South African food media.

You can attend a workshop on indigenous ingredients.

You’ll find out first who the winners are of the inaugural FOOD XX Awards.

You can pose questions anonymously to the in-house clinical psychologist.

You’ll hear from women in the industry how to run a mindful and modern business.

You can buy cute chefs’ pants at the Polka Pants pop-up shop, plus books and other goodies like pickled periwinkle from the West Coast women collective, Weskusmandjie, and condiments from Mokgadi Itsweng’s Lotsha.

You’ll get to network with other badass women in the industry.

You can enjoy a feast of bites prepared by Mokgadi Itsweng, Colette Robert and The General Store crew, Jessica Shepherd (The Table at De Meye), Jules Randles (The Commissary), Jess Spiro, Sinenhlanhla Ndlela (Yo Coco), and Huiskombuis in collaboration with District Six Museum and Lily Jones (Lili Vanilli).

You can buy a booster ticket for someone who wants to go but doesn’t have the means to pay for their own.

Buy a ticket now for R1100 (or R950 if you have the Eat Out app).
