The two-day event that runs from 12pm to 8pm on March 12 and 13 will also host culturally immersive activities like South African face painting, hair braiding, beadwork and DIY graffiti walls in addition to Oculus – a virtual reality journey into the deep blue seas and mesmerizing safari routes of South Africa.
To make this experience even more exhilarating, Chefs Abigail and Sipho from South Africa will showcase a delectable food experience that one can try their hands onto in a masterclass followed by food tasting at Foodhall, Khar – Linking Road in Bandra on March 12 and 13. They will present an only South African themed family meal known as Sunday Kos often made up of 7 colours, prevalent in most township homes and rural areas across the country.
While there are many ways to immerse yourself in culture, one of the best ways to do this is through food. Food has an emotional association that allows it to become a channel of expressing love, care and gratitude.
