Experience food from around the world with first season My Kitchen Rules SA semi-finalist, Luyanda Mafanya at the July SAB World of Beer food and beer pairing in Newtown, Johannesburg.

Making use of the self-taught chef and food-blogger’s passion for internationally inspired dishes, the menu boasts authentic cuisine from countries such as Thailand, Mexico, South Africa, USA and even ancient Greece. Beers such as Corona, Redds (flavoured alcoholic beverage), Castle Milk Stout, Budweiser and Stella Artois will be paired with each country.

“We are delighted to have Luyanda take us on this food and beer pairing journey,” said Tshepo Tloubatla, beer culture general manager of World of Beer. Complementing flavours is one of the simplest ways to make a delicious food and beer pairing and it can be done with any and all types of cuisine, from the simple to the extravagant.

“Luyanda will guide guests through the pairing – drawing attention to the flavour and aroma of each beer and how it enhances the flavours and textures of each meal.”

Jazz entertainment will ensure the mood is set for an afternoon of delicious food and fun.
