Tasteful creations and entertaining chefs a delicious addition to the Decorex Cape Town menu

Stylish food expertly crafted by Cape Town’s culinary elite will be served in a beautifully curated kitchen, restaurant and café settings at this year’s Decorex Cape Town. This is an opportunity to discover spaces to relax and enjoy gourmet food and on-trend drinks, while taking in the latest in décor and design.


“The cuisine element of Decorex Cape Town has always been a big drawcard as the city is renowned – internationally – for its expertise in food,” explained Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director at Reed Exhibitions. “The fact that a Cape Town eatery was just named the top restaurant in the World Restaurant Awards is testament to this. This year’s food and drink element will be fused with the exhibition theme, ‘Designing for Africa – feels like home’, giving visitors a chance to taste the food in the style of this beautiful continent.”


Jacobs Gourmet Cooking Theatre built by LUSSO Luxury Living


It’s time for a giggle and some grub at the first-ever Jacobs Gourmet Cooking Theatre built by LUSSO Luxury Living featuring the Jacobs Coffee Magicians. Renowned South African chef, MasterChef judge and the Ultimate Braai Master – Pete Goffe Wood – is teaming up with Celebrity MasterChef winner and one of South Africa’s funniest comedians – Chris Forrest – for a feast of fun in this hilariously appetising installation.


This comedic culinary pair will combine their love of great coffee and delicious food with a dash of great humour in a tantalising foodie demonstration. Visitors will be spellbound as the Jacobs Coffee Magicians demonstrate the versatility of the superb Jacobs coffee, which can transform any dish – sweet or savoury – into a magical feast! Their easy-going techniques can be imitated by even the most novice cooks, while their non-stop banter will keep the audience in stitches! Visitors will also get to engage directly with the magical duo in the Jacobs Meet & Greet sessions.


Time to wine and dine at Decorex Cape Town


Those looking for expertly crafted warm or cold brews in a comforting space can stop by the Illy Experience; while those looking to soak up on-trend cocktail refreshments, fused by industry professionals in an African-inspired setting, will find their place at The Rummery + Gin Garden. No Cape Town event is complete without sampling some of the region’s best vintages – all available in the magnificently designed Wine & Bubbly Bar furnished by Homewood.


For some gourmet seasonal fare, The Harvest Table featuring 8°South will entice visitors with a menu brimming with locally-sourced ingredients in a family-style restaurant. And, for sophisticated African design and some of the Cape’s best in cuisine offerings, the Dine + Design Restaurant + Bar furnished by Urban Tonic is the ideal stop.
