You can expect to see Joao da Fonseca  affectionately known to his fans as J’Something at the Good Food and Wine Show in Durban.  Catch him cooking up a storm in both the Celebrity Chefs Theatre (Friday, October 30 at 12.50) and the well.i.am kitchen (Saturday, October 31 at 12.20).He has a simple food philosophy: “It’s not necessarily about the cost, the complexity or the look but what’s in your heart when you are making the dish,” he says.

J’ will be with some of our best local chefs Jenny Morris, Asha Maharaj, Executive Chef of Hartford House, Constantijn Hahndiek,  Durban Curry author Erica Platter, Executive Chef of The Oyster Box, Hotel Kevin Joseph, Head Chef of the Sun Coast Towers Hotel, Sandren Govender, Sheila Somers, and Peter Ayub as well as international chefs including Rick Stein, Brent Owens, Reza Mahammed and Renae Smith.

The Durban Good Food & Wine Show happens from October 30 to November 1 at the Durban Exhibition Centre in association with Durban Tourism. There will be book signings with all the celebrity chefs at the show, along with Q&As and the Big Durban Curry Cook-Off. The visiting chefs will be staying at the Oyster Box Hotel.
