The Good Food and Wine Show is making its return to Cape Town along with a bevy of the world’s most inspiring chefs, for South Africa’s premiere food, wine and lifestyle exhibition.
The Good Food & Wine Show has pushed the boundaries of innovation and excellence for over a decade and the 2013 offering is expected to be bigger and better than ever. The celebrity chef line-up and a second-to-none culinary lifestyle experience is expected to draw up to 130 000 visitors for a taste of the extraordinary.
Visitors have a wide range of interactive theatres showcasing favourite local and international chefs live at the Chefs in Action Theatre to look forward to, as well as the South African Bar Show which will be launching as a premier annual event for the Southern African bar industry.
The Good Food & Wine show will be taking place from 23 – 26 May 2013 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Tickets can be purchased at R110 per person – R55 for children between 2 and 12 – for the full event and are available through Computicket.
The Taj Cape Town team is especially excited as we look forward to not only celebrating one of Cape Town’s premier food and wine exhibitions but to hosting Gordon Ramsay, Eric Lanlard, Bill Granger and The Bliss Sisters, as we have recently been announced the preferred hotel sponsor for the Celebrity Chefs attending the Good Food & Wine Show.
The exhibition will be hosted by the CTICC, which is situated in Cape Town’s Foreshore, a stone’s throw away from the city centre and the V & A Waterfront. If you are planning on staying in the city for the duration of the Good Food and Wine Show, why not book 5-star Luxury Cape Town accommodation at Taj Cape Town, located in the heart of the city centre.

The first day of May symbolizes solidarity with workers around the world and is a day for reflection on the struggles, as well as a celebration of the power, of the working class.
South Africa inaugurated their first Workers Day as an official national public holiday following the first democratic elections in 1994. It is celebrated on the first day of May and observes International Workers Day. Also known as May Day or Labour Day in many countries, Workers Day is a national holiday in South Africa honouring workers which originated in the struggle to achieve fair employment standards by workers and their trade unions. The day has evolved from efforts of the labour union movement to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers and is now celebrated as a national holiday across many countries in continents around the world.
The historic struggle to establish a culture of human and worker rights has been enshrined in international law and the national law of the countries aligned to the International Labour Organisation, of which South Africa is a member. The role played by the Communist Party, trade unions and other labour movements in the struggle against apartheid and for worker’s rights is of great importance in South Africa and is sure to be reflected on.
South Africa remains committed to ensuring the welfare and good conditions of service for workers and to achieve this progressive labour legislation, key programmes have been put in place to align with the constitution, including the prevention of discrimination as well as workplace discrimination.
The Taj Cape Town offers luxury accommodation in Cape Town in the heart of the city and hosts a selection of fine dining restaurants with street parking available in Queen Victoria Street and secure parking available at Mandela Rhodes Place.
