SLOW MEAT – What’s on your plate?

For more than 100 000 years Southern Africa has provided both the hunter and the hunted.  It’s not surprising that meat plays such an integral role in our daily lives, so deeply ingrained in the psyche of a nation. Rich and poor alike share this obsession, defining both culture and lifestyle.

The launch of Slow Food SA’s initiative “SLOW MEAT” during 2015 was indeed a watershed project for Slow Food. It was the first time that a major multi-city food event was held that brought together farmers of indigenous breeds, food processor (in the form of butcher and charcuterie maker), chef and consumer and was not sponsored by large food companies. Now an even more inclusive event – Serengeti Eat-In offers us an opportunity to eat nose to tail dishes prepared by a startling list of Gauteng’s premiere chefs…

Serengeti Eat-in - Walk the Slow Food talk with us

E-mail sent by Brian Dick, Sunday, 12th March 2017 @ 5:43pm

Why the Eat-in is so important to us.

  • Nguni farmer Victoria Dzowa will be supported as a small scale indigenous breed producer
  • All vegetables sourced from urban gardens across the city
  • All ten chefs give their time without compensation
  • 40 market stalls selling produce and craft


These events are critical for

  • Raising the awareness about conscious and responsible consumption, using every piece of the Nguni
  • Eating seasonally and sourcing as locally as possible
  • Showcasing the talents of some of the finest chefs in our city who also understand the principles of good, clean and fair food.


Slow Food Johannesburg has embarked on a number of projects for which funds are urgently needed.  These include:

  • Establishing 100 Rex Union orange trees to save the variety
  • Supporting the establishment of an urban gardening academy to train small scale farmers
  • Bake me Better project at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital
  • Establishing earth markets to support small scale farming activities in Soweto
  • Zulu Rainbow Maize program to revitalize cultivation of this unique variety
