Lunch at The Tokara Estate

Tokara is a magnificent wine estate and now I have finally ticked “Lunch at Tokara” off my foodie bucket list. We had the best seat in the house with the most beautiful views! Tokara is perched on top of the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch and offers visual delights both out the window and on the plates.…

Picnic Partying at Warwick Wine Estate

I really love picnics. I love the easy, fresh, delicious food. I love camping out in the sunshine. And they are even better when there is wine involved! Warwick in Stellenbosch is famous for their picnics and were one of the first farms to introduce a gourmet picnic on their rolling lawns. I have visited…

Hoghouse Parties at Spier

La Colombe: Gourmand Lunch Menu

I have a rolling list which includes a perfectly ripe nectarine straight out of the fridge, an avocado in between the rock hard and vrot phase, tuna sashimi and oyster mushrooms. I cannot tell you why I find these foods perfect and they are all quite different from…

Lazy Lunches at Jordan

We have been slowly working our way through the Eat Out Top Ten of 2016 (and the top twenty nominees too). I have visited Jordan before on many occassion for both wine tasting and lunch at their amazing deli. I would highly recommend their deli for delicious seasonal food and stunning views. However, I have…

PRON: People Republic of Noodles

I put a lot of research into our restaurant visits in Jo’burg. I fortunately have a colleague (and friend) who is both an adventurous eater and very brave in the face of new food thrown his way. We have worked through a long list of firsts and I am determined to turn him into a…
