Sample gourmet food in Cape Town
Cape Town is fast becoming a gastronomy hotspot and people taking luxury vacations in South Africa this year will have ample opportunity to taste the finest dishes the country has to offer.
A number of festivals have been organized to showcase the city's prowess when it comes to creating gourmet food and top quality wines.
The Good Food and Wine Show will be held in May and will see the best chefs from across the country and further afield converge on the city's International Convention Centre.
Up to 50,000 people are expected to attend the event and a whole host of demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions have been lined up.
During the same month, the iTownship Wine Festival will be staged across numerous venues in Cape Town, which will see a range of wine tasting sessions take place.
South Africa's reputation for producing fine tipples has grown considerably and the Diners Club named Johan Jordaan of Spier Wines in Stellenbosch as the 2011 Winemaker of the Year.
