THE Plant Powered Show – which continues to bring the plant-based, vegetarian, vegan and conscious living revolution to a mainstream audience – returns to Cape Town from 26-28 May and will make its Gauteng debut from 4-6 August.
This fun-filled foodie event is not only aimed at vegans and vegetarians but also flexitarians, reducetarians, sports enthusiasts, individuals who have compromised their health, and those looking for healthier and more ethical lifestyle choices for themselves and their family, as well as trade professionals (retail and food services) looking for innovative high quality products. This three day-event brings together top local and international chefs and celebrity cooks, mixologists, health and wellness experts. In addition, there will be an interactive marketplace of plant-based food, drink and conscious-living products.
Visitors can enjoy chef demos in the Checkers Plant Kitchen, powered by Simple Truth, as well as interactive masterclass workshops and health and wellness talks brought to you by McCain. Among the highlights of the show are interactive hands-on workshops, cook-alongs and masterclasses with some of South Africa’s (and indeed the world’s) much-loved chefs, nutritionists and wild-plant experts.
Book your place to join and be inspired by the likes of respected English chef, writer and presenter Tom Hunt; the iconic and much-loved Jenny Morris; ex-Delaire Graff Estate and Boschendal chef Christiaan Campbell who now runs Tebaldi’s at Temenos in McGregor; Eugene Volkov, executive chef at WE Café, Volkov; Loubie Rusch; Jane Nshuti; Santi Louzan; Elisha Madzivadondo; and Jacques Kruger, among others.
