Delicious fun @ Taste Cape Town

I love the Taste of Cape Town Festival and am always a bit sad when it ends. It is a foodies heaven! We went for the Sunday session which was  a scorcher of a day but that didn’t stop Cape Town from delivering a super fun, delicious day out. After a bit of exploring and walking around, we set up base in at the Jack Daniels tent and settled in for some much needed shade and chill time! Food wise, there were loads of options and I found the restaurants were easier to locate this year. Biggest highlight of my day was the Lindt Chocolate Tart from 8 Longridge. Drinks wise, there were plenty of wine estates offering tastings and cool cocktails and mixing demonstrations were all the rage over in the Jack Daniels tent and also in the Consol and Thirsty Barmen tent. The berry mojitos we had were ridiculously good. The Lindt chocolate tent was another favourite with endless lindt balls on sale. I tried some flavours that I didn’t even know were out there. Coconut and white chocolate = YUM! Cannot wait till next year. I hope Lindt has their Hot Chocolate ready because I would like to experience an evening session 🙂
