2013-10-28 00:00

POTJIE, boerewors rolls and pancakes will be just a few of the mouth-watering treats available at the fourth annual Methodist International Food Fair taking place on Friday November 1.

Pizza from Italy, lip-smacking bunnychows and biryani as well as Thai chicken curry from Thailand will also be a part of the fair, which hopes to garner support for the church from the public.

The global menu will feature Raja­sthani delights by Come Dine with Me – South Africa contestant Jeffrey Titus.

“We are hoping our Food Fair provides a fun, family-friendly, affordable alternative to an evening of home cooking for families on the Berea and beyond,” said Musgrave Methodist’s Reverend Stuart Bosch.

From 5 pm to 8.30 pm the church and its gardens will play host to myriad international dishes, patriotic fare, exotic cuisine and delicious desserts.

The family event is a fundraiser for the church’s property and projects to create awareness about its activities and to bring together communities to enjoy unusual food, fellowship and great company.

There is something for everyone. Those with a sweet tooth can enjoy sweets and candyfloss and an oasis of delicious desserts and cakes. To finish it all off, hot cappuccinos, tea, coffee or cool drinks will be on sale.

Children will be kept busy and entertained with a jumping castle and a sweet store while parents enjoy socialising with other foodies.

Sample global delights in a festive al-fresco-like atmosphere in the hall grounds of one of the city’s landmark historic churches. Sample-size portions can be purchased via a ticket system. Tickets of various denominations can be bought on the evening.

All profits for the evening will go towards the Musgrave Methodist Church, and the event takes place at the Musgrave Methodist Church in Durban’s Musgrave Road.
