So Taste of Cape Town 2011 starts today. It’s the fourth year for this festival and each year it’s very well attended. I’ve attended the previous ones (click here for my review of Taste of Cape Town 2010) and look forward to attending this one too. There are some great restaurants and chefs at the festival like George Jadine of Jordan restaurant, Rudi Liebenberg of Planet restaurant, Stefan Marias of Societi Bistro, Brad Ball of Bistro Sixteen82, Chris Erasmus of Pierneef, Hideki Maeda of Nobu and more!
The festival is evolving each year and so in addition to the fouteen restaurants offering a selection of ‘gourmet’ dishes, there will be a large number of stands where you can taste and buy goodies. I know our friends from Jorgensen’s Distillery will be there so make sure you take along enough cash to top up on limoncello and vodka, etc (maybe their new gin will be ready?). There will be many other interesting stands and tasty products including the Eat In small producers market.
You can find out more about the festival at the official website.
I have 5 sets of double tickets to giveaway, so if you’re planning, or able to go tonight or tomorrow night and want to save the R70 entrance fee each (you’ll still need to buy crowns to spend), drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Taste of Cape Town 2011 tickets’. In the email you can tell me how much you love Relax with Dax and the first 5 emails will get the tickets. [UPDATE: I HAVE THE 5 WINNERS ALREADY, SO NO MORE EMAILS PLEASE]
Remember, the tickets are only valid for Thurs and Fri and they do not include crowns or a wine glass.
Now, in addition to the ticket offer, Gold restaurant (one of the restaurants at the festival) is offering an awesome prize to one lucky Relax with Dax reader. Dinner for 10 people at the restaurant, to the value of R4100! Imagine being able to invite 9 friends out to dinner and it’s free!
The voucher includes arrival cocktail – R25, interactive drumming experience – R85, guided tour of the Gold of Africa Museum – R50, and set dinner and live entertainment.
You can see that it doesn’t include drinks, so that you’ll have to pay for, but everything else is free. Now that’s a cool prize.
To win this prize, you’ll need to post a review of your experience at the 2011 Taste of Cape Town festival in the comments section below. It doesn’t have to be long, just your overall impression and what you felt were the highlights. A winner will be randomly selected from the entries on Wed 11th May 2011 and annouced on Friday 13th (eek!).
