DStv Delicious: All the drooly food details you need to know

No doubt the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand will be the place to be next weekend as all roads lead to the venue for one of Africa's most significant lifestyle events, the DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival.


Described as a music festival for food lovers and food festival for music lovers, this event prides itself in featuring the best of local and international food and music to its revellers.

We have previously reported on the star-studded line-up taking to the stage at the fest.


It's the food aspect we're here to tell you about this time. Foodies (and occasional foodies) read on.


Prime your palate, come hungry and prepare for an explosion of global street food trends – it’s

like taking a round-the-world gastronomic trip in your own backyard.

How about some “wings, ribs and dope vibes” from [the] Wing Republic? Or “accessible world-

inspired food with a Balkan twist” from Balkan Burger? Maybe a serving of “Rastafari vegan

bowls of deliciousness” from Exotically Divine Ital or scrumptious Nigerian cuisine from BLD

African Cookhouse? Or let Griekse Boertjie tempt your tastebuds with their shawarmas and

salad bowls – “delicious Greek food with a South African twist”.

These and so many other food stalls are ready to tantalise your taste buds this year. From

Mozambican prawns to the local flavours of shisanyama, kotas and mogudu; gourmet

burgers to Italian wood-fired pizzas, Korean dumplings to Japanese ramen and poke bowls,

from Greek meze to Lebanese souvlaki wraps, from Spanish paella and churros to Belgian

waffles – a cosmopolitan feast awaits.


Siba Mtongana will be sizzling and sautéing up a storm in the Ambassador Lounge.


My Kitchen Rules South Africa judges J'Something and chef David Higgs will have a pop up restaurant at the Mr D’s Delicious Mile.





This year's instalment will also mark the launch of DStv Delicious Festival: Our Story & Recipes, a unique recipe book.

Crammed with delectable recipes from leading chefs, local celebrities and musicians, this must-

have book tells the story of the festival from its inception, through Covid-19 up until its fresh

rebrand in 2022. You’ll also learn more about the stars, musicians, traders and everyone

involved in South Africa’s most iconic food, lifestyle and music festival.


The book will retail at R390. For details on how to purchase a copy, follow That Food Guy Group.


The DStv Delicious International Food and Music Festival takes place this weekend (24 to 25 September) from 11am until late.
