Held on the grounds of the Montecasino – I did not even know there was a whole other section to this sprawling fake Tuscan wonderland – the Taste of Joburg was on a scorching hot day this year. Plenty of drinks stands, a live band, and so many food stands I lost count.
We found some shade and what became our respite from the heat in the VIP section, cordoned off and served with its own bar and lounge seating under a marquee. I forget that those tiny morsels of food can be quite filling when washed down with chilled wine. It being on the same day that the SA Rugby Team was playing one of its World Cup matches, there was definite excitement in the air throughout the entire event. A selection of photos can be seen below – I started off fairly enthusiastic with the photo taking, then it slowly waned.
