Week of Taste : 19-31 May 2014

Real Food is at the heart of the Week of Taste, inspired by the French concept La Semaine du Goût initiated almost 20 years ago. For 2 weeks, 5 top French Chefs will travel to South Africa to work with top South African Chefs on gastronomic experiences in 8 cities in South Africa and Lesotho.

The programme is varied and offers worthwhile experiences for foodies and people of all ages, with “Taste lessons” organised in schools and universities, “Taste workshops” for self-learners, accessible four-handed gastronomic dinners, tours of city markets, as well as a culinary photocompetition on social media. The idea is to discover a new food and taste experiences in collaboration with French and local Chefs.

The Week of Taste is about the sharing of food, knowledge and experiences with surprises including competitions, tips and personal recipes from top South African and French chefs…May can’t come soon enough!

The Week of Taste is presented by the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS), the Délégation Générale des Alliances Françaises (DGAF), the network of Alliances Françaises in South Africa, and Lesotho in partnership with The Forum Company for Johannesburg and Cape Town with the support of Air France, Atout France, the Reunion Island Tourism Board and Air Austral.
