Taste of Durban 2015 Round up

feature

The rain and wind was not enough to scare me away from the Taste of Durban! As I mentioned before, I’ve waited a whole year; there was no way I was going to let this year’s event pass me by. I’m glad to say, I wasn’t the only one, as the Taste of Durban still managed to pull in the crowds.

 

So from the last post, there was a lot to get through. With some old faithful’s making a comeback like the Milk Stout tent, eKasi Experience where Max’s Lifestyle and Hollywood Bets banged out true Durban cuisine, while Original Cocktails, Wild Bean Café and some stunning wine’s quenched our throats.

 

Here’s my recap of my delicious experience, including the new burger making class from Robertson’s and The Bacardi Cocktail making class!
