Rose Willis of 'Rosie's Roundup' talks about the newest festival in the Karoo...
Festival to tickle the tastebuds
The first annual Karoo Food Festival is scheduled to take place in Cradock from March 21 to 23.
“Our aim is to use Karoo and its food to turn the area into a culinary destination,” says organiser Lisa Antrobus. “We hope to inspire ‘foodies’, who travel in search of new tastes, to adventure into the Karoo, but we also hope those who simply love the region will come to Cradock at the end of March to enjoy a feast of Karoo fare.
The festival will not only focus on traditional Karoo dishes, it will also include innovative ways to cook and serve the region’s culinary delights, such as ostrich, world famous Karoo lamb, port and wine.
There will be something for everyone from the gourmets to the weight watchers and the health conscious.
Organised in conjunction with Slow Food Karoo, the festival aims to encourage visitors to stop, stay and savour the flavours of good food and wine at fair prices in beautiful surroundings.”
