Heart 104.9FM in action at the Good Food and Wine Show

Heart 104.9FM brought Cape Town Soul to this year's Good Food & Wine Show. Several of the station's vibrant larger-than-life personalities dominated the stage with the international stars of the culinary world in the high tech kitchen environment of the Chefs in Action Theatre.

Clarence Ford and the African Bank Afternoon Drive team joined the Hairy Bikers on stage on Friday afternoon, where the Bikers needed to perform magic from a mystery grocery basket within 20-minutes. Being helped by a team that is described as "a perfectly dysfunctional family" proved to be the bigger challenge.

By contrast, Heart 104.9FM's Az Abrahams was the one under pressure as he hosted the Theater on Saturday afternoon with Cyrus Todiwala and Ramola Parhboo. He was challenged to find a way to get a word edgeways in a kitchen with two ebullient and quirky personalities.

The true test was his role as peacekeeper when the Hairy Bikers returned with Gavin Rajah and Jenny Morris for another 20-minute cook-off. Luckily, Az is also a supremely confident personality who oozes high energy.

Bokomo Hearty Breakfast lead man Lee Downs showed off his culinary skill preparing delicious Eastern dishes together with Cyrus Todiwala. His appearance on stage on the last day of the show was a highlight at the BP Cookoff, where the chefs of the Good Food & Wine show celebrated a weekend of good food and wine in Grand Finale style.

The inclusion of the Heart 104.9FM crew in the Chefs in Action Theatre brought a new dimension to one of the Good Food & Wine Show's most popular features. Professional delivery and a proven habit of genuine audience connection added that little bit of spice that every connoisseur knows make the difference between a good experience and a great one.
