Two sensational competitions at the Mzansi Food & Drink Show


The highly anticipated Mzansi Food & Drink Show is gearing up to be South Africa’s premier culinary extravaganza, slated to take place at the Kyalami Convention Centre from June 15 to 17 this year.

Brought to you by RX Africa, the masterminds behind renowned events such as Decorex JHB, Comic Con Africa, Africa Travel Week, and FAME Week Africa, this inaugural mega food and drink festival is set to merge the immensely popular Coffee & Chocolate Expo and the beloved Fire & Feast Meat Festival. Alongside these favorites, new additions include the Fine Food & Wine Show, the Bar & Good Spirits Showcase, and the Mzansi Food Market.

In addition to a host of sponsors and exhibitors already onboard, the organizers have unveiled two thrilling competitions set to unfold during the show:

  1. Chief and Charge Corporate Cook-Off Challenge: This competition puts company teams, comprising top executives (CEO, COO, CFO, or CMO), a colleague, and a professional chef, against each other. Held in two open theatres on the Fine Food & Wine Show floor, teams will have three hours to whip up a three-course fine dining meal, which they’ll craft in collaboration with their assigned chef. Menus are due by May 31st, with the option for teams to challenge rival companies. After tasting and scoring by independent judges, the top two teams will compete in the final challenge on June 17th.

  2. Best Braaier in Mzansi: Individual braai stations will be available for 20 entrants to showcase their grilling prowess. Contestants must prepare a three-course meal – starter, main course, and dessert – guaranteed to impress the judges. From May 1st, interested participants can submit entry forms via the Fire & Feast Meat Festival social media platforms.
