Kalanga Traditional Food Culinary Competition 2020

A TibaKalanga Annual Cultural Event


The TG Silundika Cultural Community Centre in its mission to preserve and to promote the Kalanga cultural heritage is introducing this proposal to be used as the basis for an ethnic Kalanga culinary competition to be held annually at the TGSCCC.

Kalanga traditional cuisine consists of a mixture of flavours, colours, textures and aromas that have a distinct character and are unique to the BuKalanga region. A culinary competition offers a perfect vehicle to foster the evolution of a food and beverage sector. It also presents an opportunity for the participants to learn from each other. More importantly, this competition contributes to showcase cuisine as a vehicle to promote better understanding of residents of the Bukalanga region and visitors.
