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…

Seaside Grill at The Radisson

I’m a big fan of The Radisson. I normally head through for cocktails and chilli poppers as the perfect pairing to their ‘sunset over the ocean’ view. Their location and view must be one of the best in Cape Town and is always sweetened with a cocktail or two. Recently I joined them to try…

Chicnic’ing at Allée Bleue

Now Chicnic is a new term for me. Apparently I’m a little behind the times and not as cool as I once thought I was. A Chicnic is a chic picnic! Its a picnic in style! And Allée Bleue‘s picnic under their trees with white table cloths, salads in pretty glass jars and fine wine…

Middelvlei: A Truly South African Experience

I have visited many many wine farms. And I have many more wine farms still to visit. But some of them stand out as really quite special. Middelvlei is not just special, Middelvlei is magic. We rolled out of the minivan after a MCC and olive pairing at J.C. Le Roux and a brewery tour…

The Lourensford Harvest Market

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Lourensford during the #DiscoverHelderberg trip for a fantastic wine and Turkish delight pairing. When Dean from InstaEatsCapeTown invited me to join them on an Instawalk to discover the newly relaunched Lourensford Harvest Market I knew I couldn’t resist! First things first – what’s an instawalk? Instagram has this…

Kyoto Garden Sushi

This is the entrance to a little oasis in the big city. If you step inside these doors don’t bring your drama; take on their calm, take on their zen and only bring an empty stomach. Kyoto Garden Sushi is a truly peaceful little spot. Its funny to think of a restaurant as peaceful –…

Taste of Cape Town 2015: All the highlights!

The Taste of Cape Town weekend is without a doubt one of my favourite weekends of the year. I have been going to this event for the last 7 years. Yes….. I’m getting old and its freaking me out. But the pleasure of attending this event to eat food from some of Cape Town’s best…

Pot Luck Club: Sunday Brunch

I love brunch! I’ve always found breakfast unreasonably early. I also really really love the Pot Luck Club. They make some seriously delicious food! So when given the opportunity to pair my two loves of the Pot Luck Club and brunch it was an obvious yes. On Sundays  the Pot Luck club serves up a…

Jordan and their Bakery

With all this holiday happiness floating around we have more time for adventures! Our adventures have included some fantastic trips to Stellenbosch! One of our favourites so far has been our visit to Jordan. We started off with a wine tasting and then visited the Bakery at Jordan for a really gorgeous lunch! I made…
