Cook, TV personality, author and raconteur Tom Parker Bowles, UK MasterChef judge John Torode and Australian patissier and Chef Adriano Zumbo are just three of the headline attractions at this year’s Johannesburg Good Food & Wine Show, which takes place at the Ticketpro Dome from Thursday, July 23 to Sunday, July 26.
Tom Parker Bowles may first have come to the public attention thanks to his Royal connection – he is the only son of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall – but there’s much more to him than that! He is a respected cook, TV personality and author who is in huge demand around the world for his food demonstrations and talks and is the author of a number of award-winning food and cookery books.
John Torode– along with Gregg Wallace, launched the updated BBC show MasterChef in 2005 and continues to be the UK’s MasterChef co-judge. By 2011, the show had been sold to 25 countries and was named “the biggest food-related television show worldwide” spawning spin-offs such as MasterChef Australia and MasterChef SA.
Adriano Zumbo is an Australian patissier and chef, known for his croquembouche tower, V8 cake and fairy-tale house on MasterChef Australia.
