Chefs Jade de Waal and Jocelyn Myers-Adams of Food Jams announce the opening of Food Jams in the Feastivity Cooking Studio at Emperors Palace in Kempton Park. An exciting new cooking experience that combines sustainability, entertainment and culinary delights.

Friday, June 07, 2024

Food Jams Cape Town is set to expand their culinary adventures in partnership with Emperors Palace in Johannesburg. Their interactive cooking experiences are not just about savouring delicious flavours. Combining the power of cooking with a commitment to entertainment and sustainability, Food Jams at Feastivity redefines what it means to indulge in your own unique creations while caring for our planet.

Combining a passion for music and a rich culinary heritage, saxophonist de Waal was raised in a family that cherished the kitchen as a space to come together and celebrate.  As both a musician and a participant in the inaugural season of MasterChef South Africa, the concept of Food Jams naturally evolved.  It became a place where friends, family and even strangers would come together to ‘jam’ with ingredients instead of musical notes.  Food Jams, which originated from her home kitchen in Cape Town nine years ago, has since grown into a thriving culinary community.

Bringing a wealth of local and global culinary expertise to the table, Executive Chef Myers-Adams has earned acclaim from the World Wildlife Fund for Nature South Africa (WWF-SA) as a distinguished Ambassador in South Africa’s SASSI program. She serves as a passionate advocate for sustainable food principles, championing the cause of supporting local providers, embracing organic ingredients, and actively promoting the reduction of food waste to help mitigate our ecological footprint.

Fuelled by their love for people, culinary artistry, and the world of food, de Waal and Myers-Adams radiate a dynamic energy that’s hard to match.

Food Jam will be located in the Feastivity Cooking Studio, next to the famous Red Roman Shed at Emperors Palace. Food Jams at Feastivity aims to create culinary connections, where a skilled team of chefs is at your service, providing a diverse range of interactive, hands-on cooking encounters tailored for groups of all sizes. These experiences allow you to not only learn new culinary skills and techniques but also have a great time while doing so.  At the end of the session, everyone gathers around a bountiful harvest table to savour and share their culinary creations.  Whether its team building, creative workshops or private celebrations, Food Jams at Feastivity offers the ideal social setting for special occasions. Come hungry, leave happy.

Open from Wednesday to Saturday 12h00 – 22h00. Bookings are essential and can be made via telephone :+27 63 292 0419, email: website:
