 With the SA Cheese festival celebrating 16 successful years, cheese-lovers can hardly remember a time when they did not diarise the festival dates in April. It is firmly established as one of the country’s most popular andwell-organised celebrations of a food that most of us enjoy daily.

This year, visitors will find new attractions along with  the established favourites: As well as  the amazing range of artisan and classic cheeses, food that makes perfect partners, such as bread, wine, and sweet delights are also on the menu. New product launches are another regular feature while a large variety of delicious  fare will be presented in Gourmet Lane. Fancy yourself as an artist with a carving knife? Enter the Ladismith Cheese Carving competition and create a masterpiece.

 

Celebrity chefs will show off their talents in the Agri-Expo Cooking Pot, and they include Nataniel and Carmen Niehaus among others. Meet some of our top cheesemakers in the Cheesery and keep your entry ticket as its eligible as entry to a Win a Chevrolet UTE Bakkie competition.

Chefs from The  Private Hotel School will demonstrate recipes for using cheese, while cheese and wine and cheese and beer tastings will be presented in the Standard Bank Tasting Room.

Children will have hours of fun in the Kiddies Corner, while adults who prefer quiet to crowds can buy VIP tickets for the Connoisseurs’ Expeience which will give them exclusive cooking demos with Nataniel, a mozzarella and feta making demo, complimentary tastings, VIP parking, and entry an hour ahead of the crowds.

 

Buy tickets to the show at Computicket, Shoprite and Checkers stores, at R160 a day. Senior ciitzens pay R100 and children 13 years and under go in free of charge.
