South Africans love anything meat – braai, shisa nyama, biltong and much more. The Fire & Feast Butcher’s Festival presented by Crown National was created with this in mind – a showcase of the best meats and how to prepare and present them, inspired by current international trends and proudly presented by Crown National.

The festival gives the public the opportunity to rub shoulders with the “who’s who” in the meat industry, from famous butchers right through to acclaimed foodies. You will be able to learn about the various meat cuts, experience live cooking and pairing demonstrations, learn how to buy the best meat and enjoy a range of other fantastic experiences, perfect for the whole family.

One thing is sure though, The Fire & Feast Butcher’s Festival presented by Crown National promises an experience your taste buds will never forget.
