Slow Food presents the Serengeti Eat–in featuring Nguni Beef

Saturday 25th March 2017  |  12h00 – 17h00  |  Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate

If you consider yourself as a ‘conscious consumer’, this event is for you. If you believe that biodiversity should be defended, join us. If you just love good food prepared by some of Gauteng’s best chefs, you have to be there.

With increased demand, industrial farming has turned food into a machine that puts profit and efficiency before health and sustainability.

Slow Meat brings together producers, butchers, chefs and consumers to highlight a growing demand for meat that is good, clean and fair for all.

Never before have so many top notch chefs participated in a single event to produce the most scrumptious and creative food.

  • 10 Gauteng celebrity chefs cooking 10 different cuts, nose to tail.
  • Artisan producers market selling handcrafted products and fresh produce
  • Full Cash bar featuring Vrede en Lust wines
  • Craft beer available

You will receive:

  • 5 randomly selected tickets – each for a different plate of delectably prepared Nguni Beef
  • 1 ticket for a plate of secondary cut
  • 1 golden ticket to award to the chef whose food you most enjoyed

SLOW MEAT – What’s on your plate?

For more than 100 000 years Southern Africa has provided both the hunter and the hunted.  It’s not surprising that meat plays such an integral role in our daily lives, so deeply ingrained in the psyche of a nation. Rich and poor alike share this obsession, defining both culture and lifestyle.

The launch of Slow Food SA’s initiative “SLOW MEAT” during 2015 was indeed a watershed project for Slow Food. It was the first time that a major multi-city food event was held that brought together farmers of indigenous breeds, food processor (in the form of butcher and charcuterie maker), chef and consumer and was not sponsored by large food companies. Now an even more inclusive event – Serengeti Eat-In offers us an opportunity to eat nose to tail dishes prepared by a startling list of Gauteng’s premiere chefs…
