Joburg’s Ticketpro Dome is set to feature this year’s hottest event, the Fire & Feast Meat Festival presented by Crown National, which gets fired up from 8 to 10 June. Taking place just a week before Father’s Day, a ticket to this festival is a truly rare treat that the whole family is sure to appreciate.
This year’s festival hosts a line-up of culturally diverse chefs each chosen for their talent and expertise in taste and technique. This quintessential proudly South African weekend-long love affair of meat, fire, braais and music promises to be the event of the year for all discerning diners, foodies, braai-masters, butchers and industry experts.
Take a gander at the art of meat preparation as the country’s best butchers go head-to-head in the National Butcher’s Challenge presented by Crown National, or sample some of the country’s most flavoursome, fall-off-the-bone tender and fully marinated meats at the renowned BRM Bistro.
For a truly original experience, enter the Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Bar & Restaurant where every dish served will be inspired by the smooth-tasting Tennessee Whiskey. This experience is further enhanced by the Jack Daniel’s Man Cave where the modern man can get inked, take some time out in the barber’s chair, find the latest petrol-head accessories or saunter over to view a unique collection of classic motorbikes and cars.
At Fire & Feast, there is something for every meat lover. Visit the dedicated meat theatres for all you need to know about each speciality meat; The Sparta Beef Theatre, County Fair Poultry Theatre, The SAPPO Pork Tasting Room and The Lamb & Mutton SA Theatre. Sample the best quality meat, prepared in the best way, while the experts discuss the best cuts and preparations for every occasion.
Step outdoors into Braaitology – proudly sponsored by the leading Gas Grill & Hybrid Braai manufacturer, Chad-O-Chef – where industry chefs will prepare and cook unique dishes right in front of you, on the most universal and diverse Chad-O-Chef braais. You can sample as many tasters as you like using BraaiBucks to redeem the dishes. Then step over to Craftology where you can douse the flames with a range of craft beverages, while soaking up the vibe.
