  1. It’s no secret that I love food. Lots and lots of delicious food.Taste of joburg brings together not just restaurants and food and wine suppliers, but a line-up of innovative and interactive programmes on cooking and eating designed to educate and entertain,so i cant miss it,that’s why i want to win it badly.Taste of Joburg is an outpouring of flavours, colours and smells, a myriad different stalls, and the real beauty is that this is brought to the public by people with a real passion and talent for food and drink.

  2. I love food, seriously ans honestly! However, I OWE my wife something this month. First, it is our eight wedding anniversary, it’s her birthday and lastly it is Woman’s Month. I think i did “not do enough to let her celebrate these momentous occasions, then I have to pay! So please help the poor soul out!!

  3. I am a HUGE Taste of Joburg fan! I went last year with a bunch of friends,what I enjoyed most was the atmosphere and being able to really share in the taste experience at every stall we went to. The food and drinks were so beautifully presented to us.The stall owners were friendly and gave us such a fun experience when it came to their food or wine,I am quite big on cocktails so when we discovered this trendy little cocktail spot we stuck to it like glue,especially because they served our cocktails in big console glass jars! I recently went to the Good Food and Wine Show and I was highly disappointed as the event is supposed to be so fantastic,but it really doesn’t compare to the Taste of Joburg!PicknPay really does an outstanding job! Those are all the reasons why I would LOVE to win these tickets. P.S My birthday is on the 22 September and this would be the perfect birthday gift!

  4. I will be nagging every day until close of competition for these tickets….reeeeeeally want them badly 🙂

  5. Please choose me Elle Belles!I would like to see the 11 restaurants showcasing at the Taste of Joburg

  6. Would love to go to this event. I have heard great things about it! But I have also heard it can be a bit pricey getting tickets and food and stuff while you are there so would be great to win these tickets so that I could truly enjoy the event without worrying about anything 🙂

  7. I should win this awesome prize because it is two of my most favorite things of all time….Taste of Joburg and Lindt Chocolate….a truly decadent combination.

  8. I would love to try the gourmet food that these top Joburg restaurants have to offer and I only stand a chance if I should be so lucky one to win. Also I love Lindt chocolate…simply the best there is!

  9. I am following the love of my life overseas and would love one last South African bash to celebrate the best restaurants in Johannesburg all under one roof! To be able to try so much S.A goodness all together will leave my heart full as I leave this beautiful country. Please pick me to fill my South African heart and tummy with some yummy food love xxx

  10. I love taste of joburg! i have the biggest passion for food. getting into the DStv clubhouse would be a dream come true. Last year i went to ToJ but i was dumped the day before so i wasn’t in the mood to party and enjoy the delicious food and drink available. but this year i will really make the most of the experience.

  11. We went last year for the first time and LOVED it! Want to go back this year and enjoy it all over again! 🙂

  12. Hubby and I have been on a very strict eating plan for the last 3 month, we have been very good and have both lost a huge amount of weight…. I am totally prepared to fall off the wagon and indulge in the amazing food that this years festival has to offer. Give us this opportunity to enjoy our love for food and we’ll start all over again the very next day!

  13. OMG! This is such an awesome giveaway! My partner and I have recently moved in together, and I’ve been trying out various dishes! However, I’d really love to pick up some tips and taste the various types of food at Taste of Joburg! I would LOVE to cook to impress! ^_^

  14. My girlfriend and I work our butts off in the gym together week in and week out. She deserves a little bit of foodie enjoyment and I’d love to surprise her with this treat with all the hard work she has been putting in!
