Joburgers can indulge their appetites at the Good Food and Wine Show at the Coca-Cola Dome in Northgate, which opens today and runs until Sunday.

The event will bring Soweto Bites and the White Star Traditional Taste Pavilion to its visitors.

Some of Soweto's leading chefs and restaurateurs will be preparing local cuisine with a global twist and are set to demonstrate just how much South Africa is going to wow visitors to our shores in 2010.

Heavyweight international chefs will include TV chefs Curtis Stone, Rachel Allen, Ready Steady Cook regular Brian Turner and brothers Chris and James Tanner.

Thai expert David Thompson, Andrew Nutter and Caribbean maestro Patrick Williams will also demonstrate their skills at the Traditional Taste Pavilion.

One of the Soweto restaurateurs to be showcased is Sakhumzi Maqubela, who owns the renowned Sakhumzi in Orlando West.

Another Soweto favourite to be represented is the Sedibeng restaurant, located a few kilometres from the tourist hotspot of Vilikazi Street, which caters for the mature local crowd.

Other Soweto restaurants set to be represented are Kaya Lethu, with the first 3 000-litre aquarium in Soweto, Kwa Thabeng in Pimville and Diepsloot's trendy Sochila, with a fabulous menu that is described as an "unforgettable African fusion experience".

For a different vibe there is Sochila Diner and Lounge in Diepkloof Ext. It offers first-rate food and service in a trendy environment, complete with bar and private dining rooms.

Tickets for the show can be bought at the entrance or on www.gourmetsa.com .
