Musgrave Methodist Church, Musgrave Road, Berea
Saturday 23 July from 11am
Musgrave Methodist Church is hosting a Saturday lunch time MasterChef inspired food fair in the church garden on 23 July from 11am.
Teams of competitors will be cooking up a storm with pre-selected ingredients to find the best meal in Musgrave! Competitors will be cooking al fresco (on braais, Webers, potjies or skottels) and will be preparing a selection of unusual main meals for visitors to enjoy. There will also be pudding and drink options available.
A panel of judges will choose the best meal of the day!
The family event is a fundraiser for the church’s property and projects. The particular focus of this event is to raise money to restore and de-borer the church’s magnificent arched wooden roof. The idea is also to create awareness about the activities of the church, and to enjoy unusual food, fellowship and great company.
There will be a Jumping Castle and play area for the children – and hot dogs for sale.
“We are hoping our MasterChef food fair provides a fun, family-friendly, affordable alternative to a home cooked lunch for families on the Berea and beyond – and a chance to enjoy the company of friends and neighbours,” says Musgrave Methodist’s Pam de Wet, one of the organisers of the event.
Sample MasterChef delights in a festive al-fresco-like atmosphere in the hall grounds of one of the city’s landmark historic churches. Portions can be purchased on a ticketing system (R100 adults / R50 children). All profits go to Musgrave Methodist Church. For more information, or to book your space, contact the church office on 031 201 2005. Numbers are limited, so pre-booking is advisable.

Cooking starts at 11, meals served from noon.
