On Sunday 6 November, the Spier Secret Festival moves to Johannesburg for its 2016 edition after four years of being hosted at Spier wine farm in Stellenbosch. The food and wine event – a day of workshops, talks, eating and drinking – focuses on ethical production, sustainable practices and trends.
“We really enjoyed the warm welcome given in 2014 to our pop-up Spier Secret Courtyard bar on Juta Street and couldn't wait to get back to the Joburg energy,” says Cellar Master Frans Smit.
The speakers include:
Mpho Tshukudu: A South African dietician whose food philosophy is reflected in her brand new book, Eat Ting: cook like your granny; embrace traditional dishes; and look after your health.
De Melksalon (Netherlands): Dutch food designers focusing on agriculture and sustainability.
Cateringa & Kompanen (Netherlands): A conceptual catering collective that provides interactive eating-experiences featuring algae, the super food of the future.
Freddie Janssen (UK): Author of Pickled and founder of F.A.T, a pop-up cafe and supper club and purveyor of pickles, kimchi, and sauces.
