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…

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…

Fine Dining at Idiom

Idiom is perched atop Somerset West on Sir Lowry’s pass. They have officially been open about a month and they are seriously rocking it. They had a pre-launch event where a group of some of my favourite and most respected bloggers attended. I was in Jo’burg at the time and sadly had to give it…

My Top Valentine’s Day Picks

Alright. I know. Valentine’s day is stupid. It’s superficial. And I know it’s a big marketing ploy. I know all these things. But I still really like Valentine’s day. I like the sentimental, I like the unnecessary fuss and I like having an excuse to do something special. Valentine’s doesn’t need to be a big…

An Affair with Dalliance

Dalliance is a fantastic trendy new spot that has opened up in the Waterfront over the festive season. I have actually been twice already since its opening not that long ago. My first visit was a big boozy lunch with a good friend and my second visit was a healthy mid shopping lunch with my…

Hartenberg Picnics

If you’ve been following along on the blog as of late there has been a strong picnic theme. I am a huge picnic fan! I love lazy lunches, lying on picnic blankets, chilled bottles of wine and escaping to the winelands! The first picnic to set off the craze was the beautiful chicnic at Allee…

A Little Longer at Longridge

After our previous visit to Longridge I knew I needed to head back! You would have heard me rave about their amazing food and wine pairing over here! It truly is one of the best wine tasting experiences and I would highly recommend a visit on one of these sunshiney weekends!┬áThe tasting is a little…

The Kitchen at Maison

I recently spend a day exploring Franschhoek! I have become a bit of an expert on Stellenbosch but I know very little about Franschhoek. I was so excited to find out a little more about one of our other great wine destinations! We spent a crazy busy day visiting six fantastic wine farms with a…
