Toomuchloveliness: La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

First Thursday’s with La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek

Like any good Cape Townian, I know First Thursdays very well. It’s a busy Thursday night in town with art galleries, pumping restaurants and great wine. Franschhoek has cottoned on to this and has started their own Food and Wine Experience at La Petite Ferme in Franschhoek on the First Thursday of every month through winter.…

Toomuchloveliness: Lunch Special at La Colombe

Work Lunch Special at La Colombe

La Colombe is an exceptional restaurant, one of the top food experiences in our country and ranked number 73 on the the World 50 Best list.

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

Beautiful Places to Drink Wine: Maison Estate

We found ourselves in the winelands without a plan or destination in mind. This almost never happens- I am such a control freak that normally all our weekends are planned to the T. Instead of getting on our phones and googl’ing, making lists and getting recommendations on twitter, I left it up to chance. And…

Stellenbosch Wine Tastings with a Twist

With summer holidays around the corner we are all looking for exciting adventures to fill our days! If I told you how much leave I have over the festive season – you may never talk to me again. BUT because of this I am working super hard to come up with exciting holiday plans! Its…

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.

Botriviera Spring Weekend and Our Weekend Plans

I almost never do pre-event write ups. I have a pretty strict policy that I only write about events after I have attended them. However, there is always an exception to the rule. And this exception is the Botriviera Spring Weekend! I am a huge fan of a lot of the wine that comes out…

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…

Where to drink wine in the Robertson Valley

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…
