The Food Scene

Johannesburg’s top food traders and food trucks are set to deliver the best of the city’s street food in a fest of flavour and fabulousness. From wood-fired pizzas, hand-crafted burgers and pulled pork buns, to fried chicken and authentic street tacos, festival-goers will be able to choose from a colourful line-up of food trucks, from the smallest yellow Tuk Tuk to the largest green double decker bus.

The Disney Cookabout 

The Disney Cookabout, a comedic adventure game-show, hosted by Chef Kirsten Mohamed and her side-kick Sous Chef Mthunzi Ntoyi, will show a dynamic group of ‘cooktestants’ how to create simple and appetising meals. The Cookabout will take place at DStv’s food truck, The Runaway Chef, which will also play Disney content on its screens.
