The guide will be launched in the first half of 2016 with extensive PR for the period 2016/17, and have a follow-up pre-season publicity campaign. A high level of prestige will be associated with an inclusion. Each selected restaurant has a write-up that includes a brief description of the restaurant, a map and detailed directions, GPS co-ordinates and a QR code for readers to link directly to the restaurantÔÇÖs website. The top restaurants will include a recipe of their signature dish. It will navigate the reader from the major cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban through country escapes en route, covering gourmet getaways, refined dining and fabulous food. There are no hotel or restaurant advertisers, which means all venues are rated on merit alone. There was also no cost for the restaurants/hotels to be included. The prestige and intrigue of the awards programme, the layout and design of the guide and its publicity will ensure appeal to a discerning audience of local and international food lovers and regular restaurant-goers. The guide is written in an informative yet lively, personality-driven style. Each annual guide will have longevity for the recipe content.
