The Appetite Fest starts today at Sun Arena, Time Square. It ends on Sunday.
General manager at Time Square Brett Hoppe promised that the festival would be bigger and better.
He said the event would also drive a lot of tourists towards the city, which would be great for Pretoria.
South African chefs Sarah Graham, Siba Mtongana, Bertus Basson, Lorna Maseko and Claire Allen said they were looking forward to the event.
