food prepared by an award-winning chef
Brooklyn Bubbles – the hugely successful and highly anticipated MCC and Champagne Festival at Brooklyn Mall – takes place over a two day period this year, on Friday, March 3, and Saturday, March 4.
The annual festival, a highlight on Pretoria’s social calendar, will feature some of South Africa’s finest Methodé Cap Classiques and a selection of France’s best Champagnes.

France’s Champagne houses will be represented by Nicolas Feuillatte, Taittinger and Luc Belaire.
Food at the event – which will also feature live music from Dylan Live and Jared Coetzee – will be provided by award-winning chef Vanessa Marx who will provide a range of delicacies including oysters, sushi, charcuterie, pulled pork buns, a choice of local and imported cheeses and churros and mini-donuts for dessert.
