Reuben Riffel brings his culinary genius to Jozi in September

Featuring the best chefs, top 10 nationwide Coke Food Fest Restaurants and unsurpassed gourmet Coke Food Fest street-food market

Johannesburg, August 2018: It might be all about the house and the bass at the sixth edition of the Vodacom presents DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival but food, glorious food, also has a starring role when the two-day music and food fest takes place at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand on 22 and 23 September 2018.

Celebrated South African chef, restaurant owner and TV personality Reuben Riffelreturns by popular demand bringing his sensational Franschoek based restaurant “Reuben’s” together with Coca-Cola, to Johannesburg for two days only with a not-to-be-missed taste sensation of some of his fabulous signature dishes.

His delectable menu features an immaculate balance of flavours with dishes such as cold smoked Franschhoek trout and guacamole with preserved lemon, saffron pickled cauliflower, nori, nuoc chum dressing, black bean puree, sesame seeds, pickled mustard, sweet-gochujang cucumber and crispy rice fritter. For mains there’s chargrilled beef fillet with sweet soy glaze accompanied by smoked bone marrow with salsa verde, barley & beef shin ragout, carrot-tarragon puree, umami mushroom and charged onion and dessert is passion fruit cheese cake accompanied by a gin poached peach, fruit & macadamia salsa and a berry macaroon.

Reuben Riffel’s long-table restaurant (brought to you by Coca-Cola) includes a cash-bar where restaurant ticket holders can complement their meal with the perfect wines and beverages that will bring out the flavour profiles of the ingredients in the dishes.

Riffel is delighted to be back: “Food doesn’t have to be fancy and extravagant to be delicious. Too much messing about with food makes it lose its identity, its essence. It shows a lack of respect for the items you’re cooking. I believe in looking for new ways to do things, but simplicity is always the key.”

During the Heritage Day culinary weekend, festival fans can enjoy some of their favorite food market vendors under one roof on the Delicious Mile, the professionally curated gourmet street food market which is the best of its kind in South Africa. The gourmet street food market serves food from all over the world, prepared by slow food producers. Patrons can get a little taste of South Africa in Johannesburg, perfectly paired with the best music and drinks.

Coke Food Fest is bringing 10 exciting traders to the Delicious Mile over Heritage Day weekend. “Coca-Cola runs the Coke Food Fest competition where food vendors nationally, are invited to enter their popular Coke and meal combos to compete in three meal categories- ‘on the go’, ‘traditional’ and ‘gourmet’ where they could win an opportunity to showcase their food at the Vodacom presents DStv Delicious International Food and Music festival” says Michelle Cloete, Marketing Manager at Coca-Cola. “Consumers can then vote for their favourite Coke Food Fest meal combo at their favourite participating outlet and could stand a chance to win a share of R500 000.00 in daily prizes and tickets to the Vodacom presents DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival”.
