Massive turnout to Fire and Feast Meat Festival Expo

Thousands of people poured into Johannesburg’s Ticketpro Dome from 8 to 10 June to witness this year’s sizzling Fire and Feast Meat Festival expo. Presented by Crown National, Fire and Feast Meat Festival was running for its second year in the city with the aim to educate meat lovers regarding meat purchasing and cooking. During the three -day programme, there was a line-up of the best diverse chefs who taught the visitors on how to cook, simmer, sear and braai meat from leading butchers.

With this and more, the programme was accompanied by great music and family entertainment in a grand setting. In an interview with Cosmo City Chronicle, a chef at Lamb and Mutton SA Theatre who identified herself as only Naledi said she was excited to be participating in the expo. “The expo is giving us time to engage with meat lovers who also happen to be our clients. It is a very good opportunity for us to showcase our talent in the meat industry.

We are providing tasty samples so that our customers get to know our new products. The meat lovers will also get to understand different spices, sauces and cooking accessories that we use behind the scenes,” she said.

Andrew Aphane, a representative from the National Department of Environment said they were exhibiting to show that the game meat is healthy to eat.
“Most people have never tasted the game meat, so we are doing our best to partner with the retailers to spread the meat in various areas of the country. We are exhibiting different game meat from animals like Blue Wildebeest, Kudu, Buffaloes and many more,” he said.
Joao Silva, a representative from the Victoria Polish Meat Company said they were bringing diversity in the meat industry though traditional Polish meat.
“Our meat is traditionally straight from Poland and it has some Polish flavours. We want to bring diversity in South Africa with regards to meat consumption. Our meats always go with a bottle of some flavoured water which assists in dealing with alcoholic hangovers,” said Silva.
Che Upton, a Chef at Che Gourmet said she took the expo as a platform to bring the world together through food.
“We provide exciting recipes and products from all over the world. From America and Europe to Asia and Africa, we bring global, fresh and mouth-watering product range you can use in a million different ways in your kitchen. We have healthy sauces, seasonings and fermented food from around the world,” said Upton.

Fire & Feast meat festival is the best place to “sauce” fathers day

For a gift with a bit of edge, consider getting dad a tattoo for Father’s Day. Renowned local tattoo artists from Awhe Tattoo & Lifestyle Studio will be featuring at the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave at Fire & Feast, ready to customise a design or replicate any creation on skin. If tattoos aren’t his thing, then an I ‘heart’ dad tattoo on the upper arm is always a classic.

They offer traditional hot towel shaves, beard shaves, head shaves, beard maintenance and haircuts…all right inside the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave at Fire & Feast.

5. Keeping it retro


For a truly timeless gift, there’s nothing quite as original as a handcrafted wall clock from the artists at Vinyl Record. Each vintage record is recrafted into a stylishly retro wall clock depicting anything from a favourite superhero to a more whimsical forest scene. These reconfigured retro pieces – located in the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave - will keep dad on time and in style.
