On a stick or in a bun, the annual Street Food Festival is back for the 5th time in 2018 to celebrate street food in its varied forms. Custodians of South African street food culture, those who have settled here bringing tastes of home with them, or food trucks making fare inspired by the streets of foreign cities: you’ll find it all at the Street Food Festival.
Each year the event is conceptualised and produced by culinary-minded experience designers Studio H. African flavours have become a worldwide trend and this serves as the inspiration for this year’s festival.
Following the success of previous years, in 2018 the Street Food Festival will be expanding to include 10 days of festivities which will kick off with a launch party at House of Machines in Cape Town on the 31st of August.
As always there’ll be an unmissable line-up of crate talks by local food entrepreneurs. In Cape Town listen to talks by Dial-A-Koesister whose Sunday morning deliveries bring delicious warm koesisters to your door; Toast Ale who brew beer using unsold bread loaves and unused crusts; Elisha Madzivadondo, cofounder of The Sunshine Co, and Jeremey Barty, founder of Breadrev – an organisation built to uplift communities through artisan bread.
