Print publication, MENU tells you what to eat where
Whatever Hannerie Visser and Peet Pienaar (The President) touch, always seems to turn into gold. Their personal interest in food and the story that comes with it made them organise the Toffie Food Festival which is happening on the 3rd and 4th of September 2011 in Cape Town’s City Hall.
A few weeks before, on Wednesday 17th of August, they launched something else foodie: MENU – a publication witth Cape Town’s 167 best dishes. In the editorial, Peet Pienaar says “Shopping malls killed our food culture and everyone just goes to them. There are almost no good butchers left in the Cape Town CBD or street stalls selling Xhosa or Afrikaans food. Yet food is what most people can be creative with; food tells us who we are and where we come from. That’s why we decided to put together a guide about the best meals in Cape Town. When I decide to get food, I choose a place based on what I feel like eating… We wanted to show the diversity of the city through food and the people behind it.”
From breakfast, bread, edible Ubuntu to Afropolitan, Asian and others. Get your issue at the giftshop, Church in Spin Street and enjoy great visuals that will make you hungry.
