Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

Picnic’ing with Grande Provence

I can never resist a good picnic – especially when you’re picnic’ing on a wine farm with a glass of chilled rosé in one hand and a hunk of french stick with a slab of brie in the other. Grande Provence did an amazing job of providing all that and more. We arrived at Grande…

Crumbs and Cream in Seapoint

I thought by now the craze would have worn out. But it really hasn’t. Crumbs and Cream has launched the first South African ice cream sandwich brand by pairing delicious gooey cookies with fantastic ice cream flavours and exciting toppings!. We arrived on a lovely wintery day with a queue of twenty people heading out…

Oranjezicht City Farm Market at The Waterfront

I was always a big fan of the Oranjezicht City Farm Market when it was in its original location. And I used to try visit on a monthly basis. However, when it moved to Helen Zille’s home and then again to the V&A Waterfront I fell out of the habit of going. However, on a weekend…

A night over at The Marly in Camps Bay

I am a Cape Townian born and bred but I actually spend very little time in Camps Bay. Or even any of the beaches at all. Our night over in Camps Bay actually felt like a proper holiday because we got to explore a suburb we almost never visit! We arrived early and watched the clouds…

Picnic Partying at Warwick Wine Estate

We really love picnics. I love the easy, fresh, delicious food. And 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…

Lunching at Gabrielskloof

I have been wanting to visit Gabrielskloof for the longest time! They offer picnics in the summer and farm style family lunches in the winter months. They produce incredible wines and promise fantastic views. But sadly our weekends always filled up with other things and we never had the chance to visit. When we booked…

La Colombe: Gourmand Lunch Menu

There is food that is simply perfect. 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’m not sure why I find these foods perfect as they are all quite different from one…

The Alphen for the perfect weekend stay

We recently spent the night at The Alphen in Constantia which is only about ten minutes from home. I sadly spent the Saturday morning at work. We then grabbed lunch at Cheyne’s in Houtbay and headed to the hotel via the nursery in Constantia. We were able to have a night away whilst still being…

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…

A Quick Round up of The Botriver Spring Weekend

I don’t tend to write posts diary style but we had such a lovely weekend away exploring Botriver that I thought I would squeeze in a quick post and share our weekend. I have really fallen for the little town of Botriver which is truly charming. I spend a lot of time in between farms…
