The Cake Boss (Buddy) In Jozi

The Cake BossBefore heading down to Cape Town for the Good Food & Wine Show (21-24 May 2015, CTICC), Cake Boss Buddy Valastro is making a special appearance at Teatro Montecasino. His four shows over two days will mean that Gauteng visitors also have a chance to see him while he’s in South Africa.

Buddy Valastro, TLC’s Cake Boss, will again be one of the top international celebrity chefs at the Cape Town Good Food & Wine Show  (CTICC, 21-24 May 2015).  Buddy was so popular when he was here in 2013 that Fiera Milano Exhibitions Africa is bringing him back.

Buddy also appeared in the Johannesburg Good Food & Wine Show last year and people didn’t just clamour to see him but they queued in their thousands to see him in action (and even the doors of the Coca Cola Dome had to be closed because the venue was so full).  Knowing his huge appeal, the organisers thought it would be best to bring Buddy to both Cape Town and Johannesburg this time so that his fans aren’t disappointed.

Kick-starting Buddy’s SA visit, an exclusive two-day event has been specially arranged at Gauteng’s premier entertainment destination, Montecasino.Visitors to Buddy’s shows will be able to see him live in baking action in the Teatro Theatre in four shows over two days.

“We are thrilled to be hosting such a special event as this at the Teatro at Montecasino. We always strive to ensure that we offer unique events to our local audiences and certainly we feel that Buddy Valastro, with his culinary artistry and showmanship, fits the bill perfectly. These appearances will be something new for our venue, but we constantly need to push the boundaries on what we have on offer at Montecasino and we look forward to welcoming Mr Valastro and his fans to the Teatro for these limited shows” Bryan Hill, General Manager, Teatro, Montecasino

Buddy’s talent and passion for his family business, Carlo’s Bakery earned the straight-talking cake expert the nickname and TV show title, Cake Boss. To date, this has become one of the most successful TV shows on TLC. As a fourth generation baker, for him, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake”; creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family.

Buddy appears at Teatro Theatre, Montecasino on 19 and 20 May.
