Capsicum Culinary students part of Soweto Eat In 2017 @capsicumcooking

Students from the Capsicum Culinary Studio in Gauteng will be taking part in Saturday’s Soweto Eat In 2017 which will take place at the Funda Ujabule, UJ Soweto Campus from 10:00 to 17:00.

They will be taking part in the Skaftini Challenge – a competition to produce the tastiest, healthiest lunchbox for only R20 each. Five students from each of Capsicum’s three Gauteng campuses – Rosebank, Boksburg and Pretoria – will compete.

The rules of the competition state that every lunchbox must include a protein, also contain a 250ml drink, appeal to the targeted age group and must take into consideration how the lunchbox will be carried by the children. And all for a cost of R20 per lunchbox or less.

The lunchboxes will be sold on the day with proceeds going to Slow Food 10 000 Food Garden’s programme. Judging the Skaftini Challenge will be five well-known foodies, including Chef Arnold, who will decide which is the ultimate healthy lunch with the winner being announced at 16:00 on the day.

Soweto Eat In is a unique event that brings together urban farmers, food producers, chefs schools and upcoming exciting chefs from well known establishments as well as academics, well known personalities and everyone else who loves good, clean and fair food.

Show-goers can also attend two fascinating and thought-provoking conferences.

This year’s Soweto Eat In will once again have numerous farmers selling their produce which is grown in the surrounding Soweto and Orange Farm areas.

Entry to Soweto Eat In 2017 costs just R20pp and price includes access to both conferences as well as attendance at the launch of the Food Garden. There will also be a cash bar on site.

Safe parking will be available off site with donkey cart chauffeur rides to the venue.
