An exciting development for Open Book Festival 2014 is a brand new partnership with foodie, Jade de Waal. Together with her, we will be working on a number of Food Jams and experiences, all to raise funds for Westridge High School, the Open Book Library Project for 2013/14.
The first of the four events is on 20th March in Gardens, and costs R300 pp to attend.
A food jam, for those that don’t know, is a ‘social gathering in which eating food is only half the fun’. Participants are paired up, preferably with strangers, and each team is given a portion of the meal to prepare and invited to follow the recipe, although participants are usually encouraged to improvise. Once the meal is prepared, all participants get to tuck in and enjoy the fruits of their labour, usually making some good new friends along the way.
Be sure to diarise the following dates:
