Authentic Eats Got The Spotlight at the Third Annual Street Food Festival. The festival featured a food market of local talent and a conference geared towards food entrepreneurs with such industry speakers as Mokgadi Itsweng, Keletso Motau and Dinesh Patel. It all took place in Johannesburg at The Cosmopolitan, Maboneng Precinct, Sunday 28 August, and in Cape Town, at Side Street Studios, Woodstock, Sunday 4 September.
The conferences featured talks and workshops geared to inspire all those who are passionate about food to bring their products to market. Sharing the secrets of their success was Mokgadi Itsweng, Chef and Creative Director of Lotsha Home Foods and Food Editor of True Love; Keletso Motau of Bellville’s 12 Mile Tour; and Dinesh Patel, CEO of OrderIn.
Preceding the market and conference in Cape Town a special Indian-themed Street Food dinner was designed by Studio H and created by Food Jammer chef Jade de Waal; the menu was inspired by their travels through India as well as South Africa’s rich local Indian food heritage.
