Sicily and South Africa meet over food, wine and music!

Sicily and South Africa meet over food, wine and music!

 Diplomacy is a careful dance but if you choose to, you can make it a festival! 

Sicily and South Africa meet over food, wine and music

When diplomats from Siciliy and South Africa saw music, food and wine as our natural common ground and a good place to start doing business, it was a stroke of genius.

Sicily and South Africa meet over food, wine and music

Just off the Southern point of Italy, the island of Sicily is a place of breathtaking scenery, delicious cuisine, architecture dating back to the ancient Greeks and it is a magnet for visitors.

Taormina is the hub of tourism here and Ambassador Nomatemba Tambo knew this was where we had to be.
At the local legislature, Ambassador Tambo was on message and Italian entrepreneurs seem open for business. If you’re bringing new flavours to this heart of Mediterranean cuisine you bring your best and that meant a chef who’s represented us at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Mokgwadi Itsweng.

Sicily and South Africa meet over food, wine and music

Since before Roman times, wine and Sicily have been synonymous and here local afficionados were delighted to try South African wine. Wine is a universal language, of different dialects. Bringing the entire South African experience together was a live concert by the irresistible Nhlasnhla Nciza and Theo Kgosinkwe of Mafikizolo.

The consensus among South Africans and Sicilians was that this looks set to be the start of a beautiful friendship.
