MasterChef has captured the imagination of the country while, as with the rest of the world, baking is the new Pilates; cake is now cool and biscuits are brilliant!

The new-look Good Food & Wine Show comes to the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg from September 21 to 24 and is bang on trend with food and cooking fashions. This year the show will create its own MasterChef magic thanks to MasterChef Australia judge Gary Mehigan and surfer, TV presenter and blogger Hayden Quinn from MasterChef Australia Series 3.

National Braai Day in South Africa falls on Heritage Day on September 24. Australians take their barbecues as seriously as South Africans do their braaiing and Quinn will be showing how to do it, Australian style.

The Great British Bake-Off captivated TV viewers and spawned a host of similar competitions, so the Good Food & Wine Show is delighted to welcome series judge Paul Hollywood to Johannesburg.

Youngsters can meet Disney icons Mickey and Minnie Mouse in the Disney Fun & Food Zone, which teaches them all about healthy living and eating, which is a must in a time where childhood obesity has reached record levels. Children will also be able to have fun in the kitchen in the Woolworths Junior MasterChef Kitchen.
