Everyone’s favourite chef Rick Stein will headline the Celebrity Chef’s Theatre at this year’s Good Food & Wine Show in Durban this year. Stein will join MasterChef Australia 2014 winner Brent Owens along with Giggling Gourmet Jenny Morris, both of them hits at the Johannesburg show last month.
“The GF&WS is so much fun! I loved my first visit earlier this year and am delighted to be coming to Durban – I’ve heard all about the mix of food and cultures as well as KZN hospitality and cannot wait to be coming to the city. I’ve been practising shisa nyama, chakalaka and pap since my visit to Johannesburg. Now I want to experience an authentic Durban curry. I also look forward to meeting the legendary Rick Stein,” says Owens.
“I could not be more delighted to have someone of the calibre of Rick Stein headline our Durban show,” says Good Food & Wine Show GM, Heidi Warricker. He is one of my all time favourite chefs, so I am really looking forward to meeting him and watching him in action.”
Stein is an acclaimed chef, restaurateur, cookery book author and television presenter who has written more than 20 cookery books, an autobiography and made more than 30 television programmes. He has also cooked for The Queen and Prince Philip, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher and French President, Jacques Chirac.
Brent Owens, or Brenty as his fellow contestants called him, stole the hearts of millions around the globe when he won the sixth season of MasterChef Australia and became a firm favourite thanks to his unassuming and down-to-earth approach. His book Dig In reflects his personal philosophy of cooking – “to build your own take on something traditional.”
Jenny Morris, aka the Giggling Gourmet, is one of SA’s most-loved food personalities. She is an author, magazine writer, radio and TV presenter, celebrity chef, teacher, caterer and culinary tour guide who has had an ongoing love affair with food since she was a child.
