New Food Festival Set For Harare
The was born out of the need to create an annual event around the Africa Day holiday, from the 23rd-25th of May 2014.
The food festival will allow the public an opportunity to celebrate food, and its differences across cultures and borders, as food is an integral part of being African. Food brings people together and that’s the premise that The Rainbow Towers Food Fest is based on. We are glad that Rainbow Towers have decided to partner with FEEL GOOD ZIMBABWE and Carl Can Cook to create this event as Rainbow Towers is the ideal setting for this event through its excellent facilities and reputation.
The festival targets embassies from Africa and the rest of the world to show off their cultures through cuisine, restaurants, catering companies, fast food outlets, amateur chefs, beverage companies, supermarkets, the baking community and to all other parties with a keen interest in all things to do with food and wellbeing. The festival will also see the introduction of new and exciting competitions such as Braai Master, Cake Boss, Chef Showdowns and Celebrity Cook-offs. We are also excited to have enlisted international celebrity chef, Siba Mtongana, who will come to Zimbabwe for the first time. Local celebrity, Carl Joshua Ncube will also be shooting footage for the second season of his show, Carl Can Cook.
Growing the food culture as a business in Zimbabwe is very important as it could be used as a means to market food as another tourist attraction to the country. The hope is that, in the future, the festival will attract tourism inflows, much like festivals such as HIFA have been able to successfully do.
