  4. If a requirement for ‘winning’ is reading your blog, then I am your man. I read it from top to bottom … beginning to end ……..partly due to my limited number of brain cells, I could not find where I needed to leave a comment …….. BUT it was an enjoyable and informative ‘journey’.

  5. wow! i don’t think there is anything left to say about the Taste as you have said it. just by reading your blog, my mouth started watering, and come snow of rain of sunshine, or whatever i will make sure is am there. and if it could be for free, it will be even better, and then i will be able to bless some-one else with another ticket, so the more the merier!. this is a great idea you have. may you be blessed, by blessing others.

  6. Would love my taste buds treated to this 5***** experience at the Taste of Cape Town

  7. Thank you for posting these comprehensive information about the event. I tried last night to book but just couldn’t get a response from the site.
    We went last year and loved it. My daughter spent all her Crowns on the Mushroom Risotto from Society Bistro. She just couldn’t get enough. A pity that they don’t participate this year, but regardless we went to restaurant many times as a result of it and will do so going forward.
    This event is a great way for the top restaurants to display their talent.
    I can only recommend it.
