Calling all South African foodies: remember the 2007 South African Produce Awards? Well they're back!
The awards started in 2006 and are a partnership between the annual food directory Eat In and RMB Private Bank. The awards are unique in their nature and scope in South Africa in that they aim to celebrate our outstanding local produce and to support the people who create and market it.
And now is your chance to nominate independent producers and shops for this year's awards. All you need to do is go to the nomination form on the Eat In website, fill in a few personal details and then nominate your favourite new products, fabulous producers, shops and interesting foodies (or even yourself ) for the Awards. You have 3 choices in each category and you can vote as many times as you like – just rememebr that the deadline is 2 June 2008.
By voting you stand a chance of winning a Le Creuset Pasta Pot (with sieve). Not only is it convenient for pasta cooking, serving and straining but it’s also handy as a deep casserole or a steamer for veggies and fish.
So please take a few minutes to recognise our excellent local artisinal producers and retailers!
