It’s all part of the Durban Good Food & Wine Show which runs from Friday, October 28 until Sunday, October 30.
For the first time in Durban passionate foodies can experience a 90 minute masterclass with some of the chefs participating in the show.  They are MasterChef Australia judge and acclaimed chef George Calombaris; TV celebrity chef Siba Mtongana and Neill Anthony, a Cape Town-based private chef.

One of Australia’s top chefs, George Calombaris’ style of cuisine has earned him many accolades and much respect from culinary aficionados at home and abroad. His Greek heritage was central in his upbringing; indeed it’s his trademark today. With many accolades to his name and a string of restaurants, Calombaris is also known for his cook books, his contribution as a judge on MasterChef Australia and his entrepreneurial skills.


Siba Mtongana is a passionate and dynamic food enthusiast who brought style and charisma to South Africa television food scene. She is well known for her show Siba’s Table on DStv’s Food Network, which debuted in September 2013 and was an instant hit worldwide. It is now broadcast in more than 130 countries in across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the US, Australia and Asia. She’s an award-winning food writer, an author, and has a degree in Food and Consumer Sciences, with majors in food, food science and nutrition.

Cape Town-based private chef Neill Anthony, who trained in the kitchens of Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing and other big international cooking greats, gets invited to cook in the homes of prestigious clients, socialite friends and fun-loving acquaintances transforming their dining experiences into exclusive and private dinner extravaganzas. His 13-part Food Network TV series Private Chef broadcast locally and internationally has been the launch pad for his international exposure.
